So you want to be a SEAL?
How about Army Special Forces? Either way it’s going to take a lot of sweaty days of physical training. Your going to need some good military pt gear.
Most branches have their own sets, to make sure everyone matches. Outside of official command pt functions, most servicemen and woman use their own civilian style pt gear, because in general it’s higher quality and more comfortable.
There are many unofficial military pt gear items that stay with the military theme, but also get the comfort of civilian pt gear. The time of year and the type of training you want to do will determine which clothing is the best fit for you (especially with spring approaching).
US Marine Core Warm Up Suit

The Logo says “the few, the proud”.

Many people wear these indoors to sweat more, and of course outdoors in the cold.

Official Navy Seal Workout
Earlier I asked if you wanted to be a SEAL? This will not give you your trident, but it could help you get in excellent shape. This is the official United States Navy Seal Workout. It is a little bit old school, but I think SEALs have been pretty awesome for a while.
People have been interested in SEALs and special forces from all branches for a while. The almost spy-like nature of their work. The pure excellence they represent, the toughness of passing their schools to become elite. They are definitely the best of the best, especially by physical standards.
If you want to become a SEAL go to your local recruiter, and get ready for months of workouts. If you just want the workouts, get this book.
Protect This House – Under Armor
It’s easy to see why it’s so loved. Even if the military doesn’t allow it in official pt sessions (most likely because it’s from China). It keeps athletes and the workoutee feeling dry, warm and is very light. It looks good too. You can see the reviews it has on Amazon here.
Of course there are many more military pt gear items that are available.
