i read in a forum this guy did the 500 yard swim in 6:06 minutes. Fucking machine....breast stroke ftw?
way too loud
12:45 for 1.5 miles isint to hard but then again it is just the bare minimum u need to even qualify.
awwww gay....short shorts
@NightnGales The ones he's talking about in the video are the bare minimums. You have to be above and beyond.
The Navy's special forces
The Navy's special forces Physical Screening Test. This is a test that can be taken prior to, or after, going through boot camp in order to apply for a special forces (SEAL, SWCC, EOD, AIRR, Diver) contract in the Navy.
WHATS THE SONG NAME DURING THE PULLUP SECTION PLEASE?
Let's clear up the ignorance here. Every pst around the country is ran differently. Those push-ups, sit-ups, and pull-ups were complete horse shit. The CSS form was equally as bad. No you don't have to wear boots and pants to get a SEAL contract. That's required in boot camp at 800th division not when trying to obtain a contract.
The form on all this is so lenient. The Air Force past test is much more strict on things compared to this. It seems like they allow you to do whatever you want on this.
I did the PST yesterday for my first time. Never swam down and back in a real pool before..
Lets just say im surprised I even finished it.
Our pushups we had to touch our chests. On situps, my elbows had to touch the top of my knees. You think you can do like 10 pullups but after all that stuff, I could do like 5! So embarrassing!
The 1.5 miles run was the easiest I have to say. Then we ran half a mile back as a 'cooldown'.
Hardest thing i've ever done. Will never smoke again. Rofl
