This huge volume is organized into two parts and is filled with charts, illustrations and other essential information. The first part covers in great detail the exercises and routines to follow as a Navy SEAL. Just about every type of exercise program is explained with an emphasis on running, swimming, strength training, calisthenics, and other fitness activities. The second part covers the numerous nutritional aspects that are essential for those involved in Navy SEAL assignments. Some of the many things explained in this section includes: carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, supplements, fiber, fluid replacements and many other topics.
This short review cannot do justice to this comprehensive guide. If you are interested in U.S. Navy SEAL fitness and nutritional requirements you should check out this manual. A fantastic read.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Co-Author: Monadnock Defensive Tactics System) (MDTS)
The focus of the book is NOT on how to execute exercise, but how to prevent injury.
I found it is extremely useful to learn how much I can push myself without damage.
It covers a lot of area: calisthenics, weight training, plyometrics, running, swimming, rucking, and stretching.
It is an excellent guide to prevent injuries, such as muscle imbalance, lower back injury, shine splint, etc.
It also talk about weather/climate influence, such as heat exhaustion, hypthermia, and high-altitude sickness.
It also mentions Periodization of training season.
One minor drawback would be the format of the book.
It contains a lot of data tables, so it look more like a science paper than a book.
But the information contained in the book is really worth.
