I couldn't post this in War Room for some reason...
I want to become a Navy SEAL.
I am reasonably fit and am trying to be in the best shape possible for BUDS. I have been talking to a Navy recruiter but haven't signed a contract yet. He doesn't seem to know much about Navy Seals.
as far as my PRT goes:
28 y/o 6ft 170lbs
1.5 mile run 9:45min
1000m swim (i dont have access to a lap pool so i swim in a flume.
I don't know the distance but i swim-sidestroke 20 min at a good speed 4 days a week)
pullups 35-45 in 2 min (depending on how hard I've been training)
pushups 100 in 2 min
I also have a few years of wilderness survival and tracking/counter-tracking training. Used to be an instructor at a Wilderness Survival school but left to become a musician. (not that it matters) I can hold my breath for up to 3 minutes relaxed and I am a descent marksman with a 9mm. I feel that I have what it takes as well as a burning desire to succeed.
Are there any SEALS or former seals on here that can give me some advice in preparing, enlisting tips, injury prevention tips, training tips, BUDS tips?
I would really appreciate it. You guys are my hero's and I want to stand with the best.
