    If any of you guys need advice and some tips on how to train the correct way, reach out to me and send me a PM. I was in two BUD/S classes, and plan on submitting another package to go back in a few months.

    Id rather pm someone who passed BUD/s and/or SQT no offense just being a realist...

    Really awesome of you to offer from experience but there is more than enough training advice from graduates.

    Not trying to sound like an a-hole even though I might. Just being honest.

    Why would I ask a BUD/s tryout for advice when I could go to resources like SEALfit or SEAL GRINDER PT or Team Never Quit or Stew Smith.


    Just being real and honest is all brother. Id be really skeptical of someone who has tried out for BUD/s twice and is yet to pass. Only person I met who went to BUD/s twice, passed on their second try and went on to become a RADM.

    There's more reasons that just physical that you will get failed for.

      BearPole, I'm looking for swim advice, and how to better my lap times. As far as cardio goes, I've been doing 100m swim, take a rest, 300m swim followed up with a 1.5-2 mile run, and then ending the cardio with a 500m swim. As yet, I have not looked into training courses or tips from other websites.

      Right now, my 500m sidestroke hovers around the 9.5 minute ballpark, but I would like to drop that down to sub 9 if possible. Also, any advice on how to practice a drowning compadre rescue?

      My run time and strength training is on point, just need better swim times.

        Im the last guy to talk to about swim times and distance etc. I think its all bs. Ive never tracked a distance or timed anything in my life. I just get after it until exhausted and then more. Just look at how many guys still fail even with good numbers ;)

        There are more knowledgeable members on this site that could give you better answers on improvement for times and distance, I don't concern myself with those. My best advice is perfect the basic movements and execute them correctly and speed will follow. Just keep pushing it.

        As far as rescuing a drown victim. Learn water carry techniques and rescue procedures, main thing is keep their airholes above water line. Maybe take a lifeguard course and seek employment. My favoured technique is to grab from behind under the arms and brace the neck by holding the jaw(one hand) or sides of head (two hand) while keeping head above water and egg beater backwards. You can do this with one or two hands one handed if you really gotta hustle. Find a buddy who will hold his breath until you are capable to get his airways above water. No fun trying to reenact a scenario when your actor is garbage.

        Take it for what its worth I am no expert. Try some of the resources mentioned or referance the NSW PTG on this website, as it was compiled by experts like Mike Caviston. You can also message Mr. Caviston directly on this website to soak up some of his Frog wisdom.
