Let's also say, theoretically, i have enough strenght but have never ran a mile in my life. Should i just buy a threadmill and run every day until i pass out?

        The upper body stuff is legitimately like 10-20% of being ready. Some of the first shit you’re going to have to do are like unknown distance runs, 25+ miles rucks, and land nav that involves 40+ miles of movement over rough terrain.

    Actual, real advice?
    Go on to the Special warfare pages for the Air Force. Pararescue, Combat controller, etc and click the PDF workout they have. If you can't do the mile run, substitute a couch to 5k plan on the run days.
    You can also contact an Air Force Special war recruiter and ask him about development days in your area. They get all the guys looking to join special warfare together and start doing serious 4 hour training from pull ups to running and swim work.

    Yes, running, pushups and pullups are the things you'll be doing during PT. I lifted weights exclusively before joining the SF, got my ass whooped during basic but now I can run for miles on end.

    >34 pullups
    >120 pushups
    >8 minute mile and half run
    >good ruck times i don't remember frick rucking
    Granted these were for SEAL candidates, that's the numbers we hit in our prep programs for top 1%. My dad died and I dropped to take care of my mom. Honestly not going in was one of the best decisions I made, the guys I know that made through are bored asf, lifting and doing coke. Nobody is getting combat deployments so who the frick cares; you can get jacked and do coke without a boot on your neck.

    Not that it matters, because you probably won't get selected anyway.

      Sure they are. Didn't you see the news story about two SEALs falling off a ship in Somalia? We only know about that mission before two SEALs died. Without a doubt there are a bunch of missions we never hear about.

          It was night and they had full gear on. I would think they train for situations like that.

    I trained for a special operations career for several years before becoming medically disqualifed for some bullshit eye condition that doesnt even impair my vision.

    Special operations training across all branches requires a very high aptitude of running. You have to be very well conditioned. I was running 1.5 miles at 9:20 and it still wasn't as competitive as most candidates (fortunately I got it down to 8:31).

    There are several steps you'll need to take into becoming a better runner.

    a. you have to be running almost everyday. 5-6x a week. If you're not running enough you are preparing yourself for failure. Don't get hurt doing it. You should slowly ramp up your miles.

    b. Get on the track. Run intervals of 400m and 800m with timed rest in between (2-3 min).You should have a goal of running sub 1:30 for 400m and 3:00 for 800. This will get your PFT, PST, IFT scores to improve.

    3. Invest in high quality running shoes. Do your research

    4. You have to be able to run for a long period of time and a long distance. You should shoot for a 7-8 minute pace for runs longer than 5 miles. Hell, to be competitive you should be running at a 6 minute pace.
    Buy a Stew Smith book and dedicate yourself.
    If you don't take your training seriously you WILL fail!

    Also why do you only have 4 months?
    Do you want to go into Special Forces in the Army?
    Do you have a contract?
