Disc 1 Welcome to BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) - From "The Grinder" to "Surf Torture," the training begins with a punishing series of physical and mental tests that will push students to their limits. And this is just the first day. It Pays to Be a Winner - With a one-mile bay swim in frigid water, the best students rise to the top...and half the class drops out by the end of the first week.
Disc 2 Two Weeks and a Long Day - Week One is over, and the remaining students of Class 234 are battered, bruised and exhausted. See how poor teamwork results in one candidate's injury and how two team leaders cost their crews serious punishment. Hell Week - This is the eliminator. For 24 hours a day, six days straight, candidates are put through a brutal set of tests designed to bring each of them to his breaking point and challenge him to push beyond it.
Disc 3 The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday - Students must combat fear and panic underwater as they learn advanced scuba and breathing techniques. Those who make it must undergo a simulated combat dive that demands extreme levels of precision . The Home Stretch - This is the training's most dangerous phase. Using real explosives and live ammunition, candidates learn demolition tactics, land navigation and combat maneuvers. The final hurdle is a nighttime, live-fire mission on a simulated enemy base.

Since BUDS is voluntary, a trainee can leave at anytime. How come out of 114, only 16 stay to the end?
Human being generally seem able to take anything when they have no choice. But these guys can go home anytime they want. What makes a select few refuse to even let the idea of quitting enter their mind no matter what the misery?
Perhaps even better than watching these boys push it past the limit of endurance is the simple and direct comments of the instructors on what is happening. These instructors could write a PhD dissertation on human nature and it would be better than most of the garbage that is out there.
It's 5 hours - and you won't be able to look away.
BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) training is the six months of basics, which includes PT phase, diving/water navigation, and weapons. Viewers get a glimps of what it takes to become a Navy SEAL. The cold, the endurance, the self-sacrifice, the will to win and succeed, and the dedication to the team.
My brother-in-law's father was a Navy SEAL, and after watching this documentary, I've gained greater appreciation and understanding of his experience. However, the DVD just shows a snippet of SEAL training. BUD/S is just the beginning!
For any potential SEAL-to-be, this DVD is a must! Also, for the extreme workout (or physical preparation) try: The Complete Guide to Navy Seal Fitness, Third Edition (Includes Free DVD): Updated for Today's Warrior Elite.
Other recommended Navy SEAL DVDs:
Navy SEALs Training - The Silent Option
Special Operations Force: The Secret Soldier
Also highly recommended for anyone considering applying to BUD/S. It certainly lets you know what you are getting into.
So while this documentary is not going to show everything required to get your Trident, it does provide a very real feel of how mentally and physically tough you need to be. I thank the SEALS for all they do!
