Re: SealFit??

I've been following Myth's blog. That guy can give anyone at the CF Games a run for their money. I'm sure he can attribute some if not most of his success due to SEALFit.


At first I was pretty skeptical of SEALFit but I'm starting to incorporate these principles into my programming. I think if you're able to handle that much volume, it'll do wonders for your overall GPP. It's just that not everyone can do that much volume without building up to it.

Re: SealFit??

I checked it out. It looks like a TON of volume. I take your calorie requirements will go up a little. Isnt this the same amount of volume that the games competitors use. So here is a question. Which is better Military Athlete, or Seal fit? What is the difference is there is a big one. Seal fit is more endurance based right?

Re: SealFit??

Sealfit guys actually went to MA.com Programing seminar and have made the changes.

Sealfit is SeAL focused and I beleive they have the contract for Seal Challenge Mentoring Program so arguably their program is more focused on BUD/S. Although I am not a combat veteran I am pretty sure I can say that Selections ain't combat and combat aint Selection.

So in saying that, even with the changes that SealFit has made I still think it is Selection focus, i.e. Volume focused and I'd argue isn't sustainable.

MA.com is combat focused, and I would venture to say that MA.com is taking larger steps towards refining it's program towards combat prepardness where as SealFit has pretty much arrived and what it want's to achieve - Preparing guys for BUD/S.

I havn't seen all the new changes, so I can't comment directly, but their goals are different. Are you going to BUD/S or going to combat, that's the question I asked myself.

Sean

Re: SealFit??

I've been doing MA for awhile and Sean I did notice that Sealfit became much more structured than it was when it was on navyseals.com (WFS). Then it seemed like longer crossfit WODS + running and swimming.

I'd venture to say that BUD/s pushes a person's endurance way up and pushes a person to their actual physical limit. So I'd say that for anybody whose been there the volume isn't a problem; they know precisely where the limit is for overtraining. Although any program that considers 10k a recovery day......

but that's just my take on it.

And I just checked this Myth person's blog. 55 rounds of Cindy in 30 min!?! Holy crap. That's something like 35-40 rounds in 20 minutes. That isn't human.

Why do you ask?
I was just wondering about it. I've done a few of their WODS. Great workouts. Just wondering if overtraining is a big factor?

It incorporates everything. Not just endurance. It hits strength, met-con, stamina, flexibility. great for mental toughness as well!

Re: SealFit??

I zone/paleo. Do you think I would have to up my block count sticking to this program.

Any links on where I can see Myth do some WODS?

Hi Sean.
That's interesting. What does BUD/S stand for?
