Would you be able to pass the physical tests to enter the SEALs?

The different security bodies of each country have their own access tests that often integrate written tests, psychological tests and also physical tests. We have learned the different tests that an opponent of the national police has to face and we have explained the best ways to train to overcome them.

One of the operations teams that most take the physical and psychological limits to its candidates are the US SEALs: the special operations force of the Navy, which has the capacity to operate in sea, air and land (SEAL is the acronym of Sea, Air and Land ). Not in vain, 90% of the aspirants give up in the first part of the training course of this body.

Looking only at the physical evidence, would you be able to overcome them? These are the physical requirements that are required of the members of the American SEALs.

We will obviate the two basic requirements to enter the SEALs, which are on the one hand to be an active military man of the United States Navy or the Coast Guard Service and on the other hand to be less than 28 years old at the beginning of the course.

The selection tests consist of five different parts, each with an exercise and a short break between them and are the following:

  • 500 yards (0.45 kilometers) of swimming (can be done breaststroke or crawl)
  • Push-ups
  • Sit-ups, abdominal
  • Prone dominated
  • 1.5 miles (2.41 kilometers) of race

Within these tests there are minimums that must be met to qualify for entryand “competitive” results that put you in a better position to opt to enter. Let’s see what are the minimums and the competitive ones.

PROOF MINIMUM COMPETITIVE
500 YARDS (0.45 KMS) OF SWIMMING 12:30 minutes 10:30 minutes
10 MINUTE BREAK
PUSH-UPS (2 MINUTES) 42 79
2 MINUTE REST
SIT-UPS ABDOMINAL (2 MINUTES) fifty 79
2 MINUTE REST
PRONE DOMINANCE (WITHOUT TIME LIMIT) 6 eleven
10 MINUTE BREAK
1.5 MILES (2.41 KM) OF RUNNING 11:00 minutes 10:20 minutes

We must clarify that these are only the tests to access, and then these military are facing a first phase of the course of six months in which is what they call “the week of hell”, with a strenuous training both physical as psychologically that prepares them for the missions that they will have to face later.

What are your best brands in these exercises? Would you pass the selection tests of the SEALs?
