Navy SEAL BUD/S Prep Workout

I’m not sure where I found this, or how long I’ve had it but here is a breakdown of a recommended workout a hopeful Navy SEAL should go through in the weeks leading up to BUD/S training. Since I can’t remember where I found it I can’t vouch for it’s authenticity, but it seems plenty brutal. 🙂
