But it helps both those movements... The Deadlift is probably the single most important movement that a BUD/S candidate or any functional/tactical athlete should master and train. Why?

Jocko Willink, Retired Navy SEAL and founder of Echelon Front Media knows a thing or two about training like a Navy SEAL... 20 Years of Service in the Navy.

Can you overtrain for BUD/S or Navy SEAL Selection?

Can you overtrain? I got this question over the weekend. It's a great one. And simply put the answer is: YES! 100% you can overtrain. Here's what to look out for. You should have at least 1 if not 2 rest or active recovery days during your weekly training schedule. Don't combine 3 heavy, long training days in a row. Training programs that last over 1 hour should be done 1 or 2 times a week and spread out unless they are endurance style running, biking or swimming. Symptoms.
