If you have the dream of becoming a Navy SEAL, you must be prepared for a long strenuous process. You know that BUD/S training is going to be one of the roughest portions of your life. It will also last for 25 weeks, making it into a 6 month portion of your life where you are going to be turned into one of the most elite soldiers that your country has ever seen. These 25 weeks are divided into three different phases which are each going to target a different area of your SEAL training.
The first phase is one of the most well known phases of SEAL training, as this is the one which features the infamous Hell Week. This phase lasts for 8 weeks and has a focus on physical conditioning. Everything from swimming and running to navigating an obstacle course will play a role in the training during this phase. It is a difficult, grueling phase that will tax the recruits physically, mentally, and emotionally.
The second phase will last for 7 weeks and have a focus on diving and everything required to turn a recruit into a Navy SEALs underwater soldier. These recruits will learn how to perform at a safe and efficient level under some of the most dire of circumstances. The final 10 week phase focuses on warfare, turning these intensified recruits into tactical soldiers who can operate a mission toward success. This BUD/S training is very intensive but, in the end, will turn any SEAL into the best soldier they can be.
