Week 236 of REAL

REAL - Reduce stress Exercise Adequate sleep Lower caloric intake

What Navy SEALs are required to do to make it into BUD/S:
RIght up front: Never in a million years could I do what is required. However, I needed to start somewhere. Considering how fit the SEALs are, I figured it was a good place to start. So my SEAL puppy reps (SEALp) consist of girls' pushups, crunches, and flutter kicks, a SEAL training basic. I started with doing one of each. 

PT ~ Physical therapy using 2-lb and 1-lb weights, alternating days.
UB ~ Upper body exercises
I'm starting low, at 10, to restart my workouts, with no weights yet.

SEALFit shared some good hints I want to learn and remember:

25: 30 minutes. 1/4-mile walk. Short walks. PT. UB. Stretch.

26: 50 minutes. 1-1/2 mile walk. PT. UB. Stretch. Heat. Tennis ball.

27: Rest.

28: 30 minutes. 2-1/2 mile walk. PT. UB. Stretch.

29: 30 minutes. Short walks. PT. UB. Stretch.

30: 30 minutes. 1-mile walk. 1/4-mile walk. PT. UB. Stretch.
