I have been working out for about 3 years in a row. This is the longest time that I have gone in one period. I would not say that I am a fitness nut but I do and have seen the benefits of my workouts. I work out hard 5 days a week. I do a mixture of weights and cardio. Recently, I have been checking out the web and books for new ideas to spice up my workouts. No so much of a machine and run on the treadmill type of gal.
Not to say that there is anything wrong with running on the treadmill as I h I have been working out for about 3 years in a row. Not to say that there is anything wrong with running on the treadmill as I have done it many times when I was working out on my own. However it gets real old quick. Plus I find that if I am in a class that I push myself harder and I am competitive.
So this factor motivates me a lot. So back to the book. I was curious to see what type of workout seqlfit SEALs do to keep in shape. I know they were really hard both physically and mentally. I was actually surprised to see how many of the featured exercises in ths book, I was familiar with and am currently already performing in my workout classes.
I agree with everything that Mr. Divine said about the mental aspect. It is not just purely about the physical but mental as well. I know there are times when I want to just give up but then the teacher is asking if I got a little more and knowing I am almost to the end gives me that little extra strength to continue and show myself that I could do it. Divine writes this book in a very easy and understandable way. I do this when I take my Crossfit class.
Plus, it is easy to follow if you are on your own. This is a good book to give a fitness person that wants a challenge. Truly one of the best books I have read. Not only does it give you the best exercises to push your limits but even the examples and true life events of this great Seal to motivate the reader to greater heights!
Seals all the way! Jan 21, Jen Fader rated it liked it. Great fundamental look at mental toughness training within the CrossFit context. I will NEVER nor do I really want to be SEALworthy I dread being cold and wet when I get out the shower, let alone for hours weems a time mixed in with sleep deprivation but this is a very thought provoking look at weeeks connection between sezlfit control and physical prowess. Apr 24, Charles Franklin rated it really liked it. This was a good book.
I found the information about training visualization, goal setting, mindset, etc. I do mostly bodyweight for now, so the part of the book that covered cleans, etc. Either way, nice book and something that I want to return to once I get to a gym or more fitness equipment in the apartment. Mar 21, Joao Henrique Machado Silva rated it really liked it. Nice and fast book to get you into the mindset to start training. Great Best Program ever.
Feb 09, Craig rated it liked it. Good workout routines – very Taoist in nature.
I have no reason not to give this book 5-stars. It is what it says it is. There is a lot of information on mental training that I was already aware of from other brain retraining programs. He uses brain retraining techniques that are known to work and be effective. The only thing that I’m not sure about is the Paleo diet that he prescribes. I haven’t done enough research to make a decision on the aspects of that, but I’ve been meaning to and I intend to.
If you want to take your body and mind wh I have no reason not to give this book 5-stars. If you want to take your body and mind where you’ve never been before, then I believe this program can take you there.

Picked it up from the library for the mental training tips I’m not looking to do a dozen pull-ups! Excellent mental advice for any sport. Helped me on my weeks training run the day after I read it. Also reinforced the idea of limiting sugars and grains for optimal exercise and health.
Follows the KISS principle and is a succinct and info-packed read. The timing for reading this book couldn’t have been better. It has been life changing in a time when I was ready for change. It’s tp rare for me to finish a book, turn to page one, and start again immediately.
This will get at least two reads and probably more. I want the mental lessons to fully marinate in my mind. Feb 23, Kelly rated it really liked it. Looks like a great workout series. Plus relatively easy to do a lot of these on the road with little equipment. I’d like to pull this back out in November after cycling season and do the whole program as prescribed.
Dec 02, Lyg rated it really liked it. Read, but did not do the training. Would’ve liked to, but the library wants it back because there four others in line.
I already owe fines for it. Good insights, I made a couple notes, but I want to but the book and work through it. Apr 20, Nicholas Cho rated it it was amazing.
Informative book that provides variety of workouts for specific areas of the body.
The book also explains increasing different types of power functional strength, stamina, work capacity, etc. Great book for those who are stepping into the realm of seapfit. Mar 08, Ahmad Nazeri rated it really liked it. Jul 16, Donald McArthur rated it liked it.
