Just When You Think You're Tough Enough: 3 Pounds That Will Bring You To Your Knees

May 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 124

Although the physical activities during Navy Hell Week may seem grueling, many of the trainees maintain that success is about 90% mental. In fact, most guys are physically ready for the challenges of Hell Week...otherwise they wouldn't be there. Most guys struggle most with the brain muscle.

Your safety is your brain's main job. When you're tired, hungry, sore and ready to give up, your brain is more than happy to help you along. So you've got to have a plan in place to keep your brain in line.

Here's the question: How do you get your brain to play along, and live to tell the story of how you endured and survived this wonderful (voluntary) torture? That's simple! All you need to do is get the right brain chemicals sparked and flying off in the right direction.

Increase your mental toughness. Stay calm. Focus. Ignore those distractions that keep you from your ultimate goal.

You must acknowledge any fear and then keep going.

  • Make "forward" your only option.
  • Concentrate and focus on your primary target.
  • Remain calm and composed no matter what is thrown your way.

These are all important, especially the last one. When you can stay calm under many kinds of pressure, your brain actually produces Nitric Oxide. This is the same little molecule that makes a firefly glow. In people, this neurochemical has an amazing ability to counter those negative side effects of stress. Mastering your brain can allow you to actually reduce the physiological changes that are normally caused by stress: control your heart rate, blood pressure and levels of anger, tension and anxiety.

Do this, and you can focus and make better decisions, calling upon all the right faculties to handle the situation at hand.

When you can keep your head in the right place, your will to succeed can have a better chance of making it through Navy Hell Week. The reality is that only 10 percent of Navy hopefuls are not ready for the physical rigors of Hell Week. This reveals that most of it is mind over matter. So, be alert and stay focused. Be sure that your body is prepared with the right tools, nutritional support and dietary supplements. Your goal is peak performance, not just mere "survival."

Will you be tempted to give up? Yes. Will you give up? Maybe. Sure you can leave. Lots of men do. Many do drop out, but the ones that stay till the end and complete the rest of SEAL training are some of the most elite soldiers that the United States has to offer. This is Navy Hell Week...you in?

Dietary supplements are an important part of your overall sport training. When you are working under extreme conditions, pushing your body to the limits, you want the tools and knowledge to train for peak performance - every time and every day.
