There are numerous training guides you can purchase as well as YouTube videos highlighting fitness tips and techniques whether you’re preparing for a military selection course or just trying to maintain a certain level of fitness. Personally, I prefer to use bodyweight exercises and maintenance runs to maintain my preferred level of fitness. I recently shared my deck of cards workout which consists of push-ups, sit-ups, air squats and burpees. For my running, I choose to run 3 to 4 miles several times a week. Whatever your fitness program is, it will require discipline on your part, but the benefits will be rewarding, improve your quality of life and longevity.

With exercise comes hydration. In order to get the most out of your physical fitness regimen, you need to remain hydrated before, during and after your training evolution.

If you’re looking for some additional conditioning exercises to prep for BUD/S or any other selection course check them out at the Naval Special Warfare website HERE.
