The Navy SEAL Physical Fitness Guide
************** A Message from the Producers **************
The elves who produce our apps came to me and said
they need new shoes this winter.
So here's the deal - we're going sell this app as
"donate" ware. If we get at least 2K downloads in
the next 3 months at $.99, the elves said it would
be OK to give this app away for free! If we don't
the elves are going to make another plan...
PLEASE HELP OUR ELVES FROM GOING BAREFOOT ANOTHER WINTER
AND HELP OTHER PEOPLE ENJOY THE SAME APP!
- Thank from the producers at iAppThat.com!
The Navy SEAL Physical Fitness Guide has been prepared for the SEAL community with several goals in mind. Our objective is to provide you, the operator, with information to help:
Enhance the physical abilities required to perform Special Operations mission-related physical tasks;
Promote long-term cardiovascular health and physical ﬁtness;
Prevent injuries and accelerate return to duty;
Maintain physical readiness under deployed or embarked environments.
An Introduction by
RADM Raymond C. Smith
If this guide is able to achieve those goals, it will be a major success. Being a SEAL is a tough job and requires enormous physical strength and stamina. Injuries, both chronic and acute are occupational hazards, but there are training measures and precautions that can be used to decrease the incidence of these injuries. Understanding the basics of physical fitness can go a long way to achieving these goals.
Membership in the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community requires an extraordinarily high level of total body physical fitness. A combination of muscular strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness is essential to carry out assigned missions.
To train most effectively for these physically demanding tasks, SEALs and others within the NSW community need clear, concise, and authoritative guidance on physical fitness training regimens. This manual, The Naval Special Warfare Physical Fitness Guide, has been written to meet this need.
The authors of this comprehensive guide, physicians and physiologists, were chosen because of their special qualifications in the area of physical fitness and their knowledge of the NSW and SEAL community. Their expertise ensured the guide would be written with the unique requirements of the NSW community in mind, and that our goal of expanding the individual Navy SEAL's knowledge of attaining and retaining a high level of fitness would be achieved.
I commend The Naval Special Warfare Physical Fitness Guide as a superb source of information. Following the advice in this guide will enable SEALs and other members of the NSW community to prepare for the physically demanding missions to which they are assigned in the future.
