What happens in training
It is said on the website of Navy SEALs that this is a very difficult training lasting five and a half days. Its main purpose is to test the ability to endure pain and cold, teamwork, attitude and ability between less sleep and stress. Above all, it is a test of determination and will. In this training, a trainee has to walk about 320 kilometers. It has to run several times. Navy SEAL training consists of running 2.5 kilometers in 9 minutes. Sometimes you have to walk with a boat on top of your head. Along with swimming for long distances, hours of exercise are also required. Throughout the training, a trainee is drenched in water and shivering with cold. Medical candidates are also taught to treat in emergency. There, basic parachute training is also given.
The candidate has to eat 8000 calories, but during this time his weight does not increase due to rigorous training. Many of the exercises in Hell Week have been happening since the Second World War. According to a former Navy SEAL trainer, this training is so strict that there were 150 children in his class initially, but only 24 were left by the end of the training.
play during training
There are also several games to compete during this training, including a 12-hour boat ride that gives the winning team a chance to sleep. In many cases, it has been seen that the hair of the candidate has fallen from the head after the boat is loaded on the head for a long distance. At the beginning of the training, he is given a white shirt, but upon completion of the training, he is given a brown shirt, which indicates that he has now become a Navy SEAL.
