Navy SEAL PST test. To become a Navy SEAL you have to go through a series of Physical Screening tests, which includes a 500 yard swim, 50 push-ups in 2 minutes, 50 sit-ups in 2 minutes, 10 pull-ups in 2 minutes, and finally a 1.5 mile run in 10:30.

After you passed the Seal PST and Have graduated boot-camp. After you have completed these . You now proudly wear the uniform of the U.S. Navy and are on your way to BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) training. The Navy core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment are a minimum expectation of every SEAL and trainee. Now is the time to adopt the SEAL ethos – the mindset to never ever quit, and do whatever it takes to pull your teammates through.

 

 

Can you take on Hell Week?

Hell Week is the defining event of BUD/S training. It is held early on the 3rd week of First Phase – before the Navy makes an expensive investment in SEAL operational training. Hell Week consists of 5 1/2 days of cold, wet, brutally difficult operational training on fewer than four hours of sleep. on average only 25% of people make it through hell week. hell week is the toughest training in the U.S. military.
