After high-school im going to be going into the navy, to become a SEAL. I've always wanted to be a SEAL, and im starting training now. I was wondering if there are any ex-SEALs on here, and if so I was wondering what are some major things i should train for. Ive read tons of books on what to train for, but was wondering if there are any extremely important things.

Wikipedia has an article about their training exercises and the physical exams that they have. Knock yourself out.

Oh, and prepare for the drown-proofing.

Also underwater press-ups. The hard bit is actually staying down, not going up.

Good luck dude you're gonna be put through hell and back before you even experience combat. Stay mentally/emotionally fit and work out as much as you can. And if i were you i'd start by laying in the beach tide for a couple of hours in the middle of november

From documentaries I have seen, being absolutely dedicated to making it through training is just as important, if not more, than being physically fit.

Best of luck to you though.

As far as I can see it, all recent wars have been and are for profit. 30,000 shells are fired for every "insurgent" (read human being) killed in the middle east... I wonder who sells them their bullets?

Yeah, an Irishmans idea of a good military operation is to bomb innocent people, or shooting pizza delivery boys and soldiers who were of no threat to them..

Your country doesn't have to be threatened to fight for it. Plus, last time I checked thats why the whole Afghanistan and later Iraq invasion went ahead, because of the threat to the USA and "western" countries posed by the Taliban and other fanatical terrorist groups.

Mental strength, cardio, running with weight, upper body strength.

ghostnineone has pretty much got it down, but I strongly recommend running with weight and in boots if possible. You're suddenly gaining 35+ lbs (35lbs would be bare minimum for a british soldier, in reality you'll be carrying more) once you put your kit on and you still need to be able to run with that on. Running in boots is also different as your feet are heavier.

As i recall it Bin Laden declared war on North America and her allies in '98 and can be directly or indirectly related to terrorist attacks on American soil as well as American troops. And we're in Afghanistan for money.....? Right, because all America wants is the oil from the middle East. Yes, they may reap the benefits but that's not it

As much as our world would like to believe we're ONLY there for the oil they're not. The U.S. recieved information stating that Saddamm had WMD's and was a threat to us and it's own people. America stepped in because they believed they could deter a possible deter a possible threat to the world. Yet when we don't find oil people start pointing fingers and blaim for the war. The US recieved poor information and instead of ignoring it and waiting for an attack they declared war. To remove a threat to themselves and the world.

Ever hear of suppressing fire? It's used to protect a fellow soldier (read human being).
