I have read two other books by the author (Neal SEAL workout, and Master Level Fitness) and this is by far his best book to date, and I rate it BEST IN CLASS. There are so many "SEAL" fit-type books in the marketplace and I have read them all, but this is the very best of all of the ones available to the reader. The book is well-organized, is broken up into separate workouts depending on which branch of service you want to emulate. Workouts are progressive and even though most are based on bodyweight calesthenics, there is an alternate workout that combines weights with calesthenics.
Overall I am very pleased with the book and it was worth the wait.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent set of workouts. They are mostly body weight exercises, so relatively cheap to do at home, but there are a number of weight routines to suppliment them.

It would be easy to get wrapped up in the Special Ops hype or equally easy to be put off by it, but once you actually read past the brief descriptions and histories of the various military units, the book settles down to a first rate discussion of fitness, a set of exercise routines based on different special operations units and their specific needs, and thorough descriptions of all the exercises. The book is written for a 'user's level', so there is not a lot of sports medicine or detailed anatomy, but this makes it easier to use (for me).

The most important point I came away with was that you do not need to spend a lot of money on equipment or gyms, you do not need to join a club, and you do not need a vast range of exercises to get into shape or stay in shape. You need the perservence and the self-discipline to make exercise part of your daily life, and the strength of character to avoid cop outs like "it's boring", "I couldn't get to the gym" or "it's hard"

This is an excellent program for someone who does not have any medical issues, but wants a clear roadmap from where they are with their fitness to where they can go.

AWESOME book!! You don't have to be a Navy Seal, Army Ranger, etc. to enjoy this book, or to utilize the information in it. The author puts it all in easy to understand terms, lots of pictures, and thorough descriptions of all the exercises. From begginer to camando, this book will help you out, get you in shape, and make you feel better physically and mentally. He even includes workout forms to track your progress, and charts to lay out the perfect plan for you.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in improving their health, look and feel bettr.

I would not recommend this book to anybody that is more than a fitness novice. None of the workouts are anything new or even in line with modern principles of a fitness or the concept of a tactical athlete. Your money will be better spent buying anything from Human Kinetics or other reputable fitness publishers.

This is a good book, but its meant more for someone who has little to no experience with working out.

This book is filled with good hard fundamental workouts. Other reviewers have critized the workouts for lack of variation but there is only so many different ways to put push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, and leg exercises together. I thought there were a bunch of good exercises in here. I use it as a reference book and mix and match from the various exercises presented. Admittedly, some of the exercises I knew already (I've been at it for 20 years now), but this book had a enough good stuff to make it worth it. As a bonus, the physical fitness tests of the various military units are presented within.

Note that most of the exercises are body-weight exercises. Although there is a smaller section on weight lifting, I wouldn't use this book as a reference for that. Note also that the workouts in the book are high level, high intesity workouts.

I've used Mark De lisle book "Navy Seal Workout" and gained 7kg of muscle rather quick! I loved the book, it's exercises, the style and intensity! However doing the same workout over and over again isnt good
so I decided to buy this book that he also wrote! I must say that these workouts are excellent and has more information on training the legs. It's great for muscle development to switch exercises and intensity!
Since I've been doing the Navy Seal Workout for months I started off with the Army Ranger workout and aim to complete that level and then moving to a more demanding workout for the upperbody!

As always with these kind of workouts! Do no not underestimate it even if it might seem like "easy workouts" they are everything but easy and takes alot of stamina, strength and endurance both mentally and physically!
It is the combination rather then individual exercises that leads up to impressive results! As I've said I gained 7kg. The only thing that is missing is information on what to eat after the workouts! I recommend milk and bananas as close to the workout as possible, I would also recommend to stretch after the workouts and not only before.
