A Sneak Peek into 8 Weeks to SEALFIT
It begins with your arrival as a Navy SEAL BUD/S cadet. There’s no time to dilly dally. You either do the first workout and commit to this training, or don’t bother. Next day, you move on to another challenge completely different than what you’d expect. It’s not the stuff for doubters, quitters, or complainers.
These 8 weeks will be hard. Mark will push your physical body to its limits and test your inner resolve. You’ll be tempted to give up. But if you embrace the suck of the challenge, you’ll begin to win. The stories and adventures Mark takes you on — escaping battlefield danger, calming yourself when there’s no way out, learning to trust your gut — will tap into more power than you knew you had.
You’ll begin to glimpse, and reach, your full potential. You’ll develop the character that makes a Navy SEAL: discipline, drive, determination, self-mastery, honor, integrity, courage, and leadership. You’ll thrive in a teamwork setting. You’ll learn to laugh and not take your circumstances so seriously. You’ll even know how to functionally train without equipment.
This is the ground-breaking training that increases SEALFIT athletes’ overall endurance, work capacity, and toughness. Be someone special. Let’s get started…
Former Navy SEAL Commander Divine (The Way of the SEAL), owner of the SEALFIT Training Center in San Diego, Calif., presents a guide that covers physical and mental training, a modified Paleo diet, and SEAL philosophy, affirmations, and journaling intended to turn committed exercisers into athletes with a "warrior mind." SEALFIT combines Ashtanga Yoga, Navy SEAL regimens, and CrossFit training with endurance sports and some forms of martial arts to create lifetime athletes who are disciplined in both mind and body. The first six chapters focus on SEALFIT philosophy, enhanced by Divine's anecdotes and advice on how to "embrace the suck," think like a warrior, and endure rigorous training. Chapter 7, "On-Ramp Training," details a four-week regimen to bring participants up to speed. Chapter 8, "Advanced Operator Training," offers the heart of program, with precise day-by-day workouts that make-up phases of Divinie's eight-week conditioning plan: stamina, strength, power, de-load, and personal record. The appendices include additional resources for fortifying the mind, a modified basic training program for those who don't have the time to commit to Advanced Operator Training, as well as extensive grocery lists. Divine's brusque tone will appeal to readers looking to be pushed beyond their limits. 120 b&w photos.
