Muscular strength, the ability to produce force during a single contraction, should be developed when preparing for BUD/S and the physical screening test. It is required not only to enhance performance, but also to facilitate the overall training process and reduce the risk of injury.
While strength relative to body weight—required for pull-ups or rope climbing—is crucial for performance at BUD/S, pure strength is also desirable. You will benefit from following a strength training program that adheres to the guidelines of the American College of Sports Medicine.
