Navy Seals are renowned for their toughness. Not all of us are destined to be Navy Seals but deep down we all have a little bit of Seal in us. Navy Seal training is widely known and to many of us, the thought of this type of training is enough to scare us away. With that being said though you don’t have to go through a BUD’s like experience to train like a Navy Seal.
Tips to train like a Navy Seal
Fuelling your body with the right fuel is vital to ensure that your body functions optimally. Navy Seals spend days on missions without sleep and proper food. How they fuel their bodies while in training is vital to ensure that they can function during these tough times without proper food.
In addition to a healthy diet that stimulates muscle recovery hydration is equally as important. Long hours in harsh conditions are very taxing on Seal’s body and therefore good hydration is key to ensure that energy and focus levels remain at a high out in the field. Good hydration is on-going, many athletes make the mistake of wanting to hydrate while being active, this approach will only get you into trouble.
Do outside workouts
Navy Seals are faced with different challenges daily. If you want to train like a Seal mixing up your workouts is a must. Get out of the gym at least once a week and do something different, go for a trial run, swim in the ocean, or go hiking if you live in the mountains. The type of exercise doesn’t matter, what does matter is to challenge yourself to do something new.
Combat training is a very big part of Seal training. If you want to train like a Seal you need to fight and by fight, I mean taking an MMA, boxing, or Jiu-Jitsu class. Combat sports are advantageous for a variety of different reasons, it allows for variety in your training, it builds endurance, improves hand-eye coordination and it is a great stress reliever.
If you are going to step into the ring or octagon make sure to be prepared, arguably the most important piece of equipment for a fighter is a good mouthguard, to learn more about which mouthguard is best for which combat sport click here.
Seal training is vigorous, make sure to take care of your body by staying mobile. Mobility exercises aren’t always fun and they seem pretty boring but good mobility will ensure that you can do your strength workouts optimally and injury-free. Incorporate mobility exercises
into your warm-up, not only will this ensure that your body is ready but this will also eliminate the boredom associated with a 45-minute weekly mobility workout.
Seal training is about staying active. Do a quick 10-minute workout in the mornings when you wake up, play basketball in your driveway or do push-ups while you wait for the coffee maker to get hot. Seal training is a lifestyle, it’s not just about structured weekly workouts, if you want to train like a Seal be as active as possible.

Nicolino Locche became an idol in Argentina and routinely sold out the Luna Park, Buenos Aires every time he fought at the well known boxing arena. His boxing style made him a legend. Locche was known as "El Intocable" ("The Untouchable") due to his defensive mastery. He possessed uncanny reflexes that allowed him to stand in front of his opponents with his hands literally at his sides, behind his back or even resting on his knees as he slipped, bobbed and weaved to avoid his opponent's punches.
Numerous Argentine sources also cite the fact that Locche's approach towards submitting himself to traditional boxing training and discipline was sometimes lackadaisical. For example, Locche was a known habitual cigarette smoker throughout most if not all of his boxing career and his adherence to the strict dietary requirements of his trade was often quite flexible. It was not unusual to see his seconds crowd around him during the 1 minute break between rounds where he would be puffing furiously on a cigarette.

Have you noticed that some UFC characters are strange? For instance, in the WMA, some of your favorite fighters have attributes that would make you doubt if they are actual human.
Not to derail from the point, a character's name, strength, skill, costumes, and so on, are somewhat unique - you won't find different people sharing the same style. However, you may discover out that the signature-pose or weird attribute of a fighter in a game exists in reality.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship, UFC is a governing body for all American Mixed Martial Arts. Under the contract, there are 5 weirdest fighters registered with them for WMA; therefore, the options are limited to these 5 characters. So, if you are hoping to find some of your favorite, weird fighters, you may not.
Top 5 UFC Weirdest Fighters
What makes a fighter weird are the skills, styles, entry performances, signature-poses, and a list of other things they do. Although they seem quite strange, but doing them looks fun. Below are the top 5 weirdest fighters in the UFC, arranged in the order of their weightings.
Fabricio Werdum: Heavyweight
One of the weirdest fighters you will ever come across is Fabricio Werdum. He has a lot of funny stuff that he combines with fighting. He is a great person when it comes to jiu-jitsu, and a couple of times, this former heavyweight champion has been so hard to decipher.
However, three things have been discovered about him – first, he makes funny faces that become scary to his opponent. Next, he does several strange things. For instance, he participated in a boomerang fight once – that which most fighters dread a lot. Another is the long backstretch in a match that was quite a cunny. Lastly, he gets into verbal altercations with gay slurs and cavorts like Tony Ferguson.
Ben Rothwell: Heavyweight
Another weird heavyweight fighter you are likely going to love is Ben Rothwell. Most of his weird stuff is intentional, and a lot of other fighters fear him for that. He has a unique style called the “Gogo Choke” – from Guillotine Choke. Thanks to that move, he has received a lot of respect and became a star of the UFC picks.
For his signature choke, he applies pressure around the esophagus (Adam’s Apple) until his opponent begs for mercy. Quite a lot of people cannot do this amazingly dangerous thing, but Ben can do it so well. He won over Matt Mitrione on his first Gogo Choke attempt in a UFC fight.
Nick Diaz: Middleweight
Next up is the middleweight Nick Diaz who now lives as a myth because of his weirdness. He has made up a few strange but funny quotes that have left many to love him. He has something to say about almost anything – the WMA, Marijuana, Taxes, and so on. For one, he claimed he had never paid taxes, following a loss at UFC 158. He is true, a strange man.
Yoel Romero: Middleweight
Who kisses his opponents?! Yoel Romero does. He is also one of the strangest fighters in the UFC, who plants a peck after defeating his opponents. Sometimes, Romero does it while he puckers them up and barrels down. Seemingly funny, his opponents are left stunned, and each time he wins.
Another of his antics is his post-fight speeches, which are always biblical. He calls himself the “Soldier of God” since he combines strength and cunny sharp skills to beat his opponents. Such a weird fighter!
Diego Sanchez: Welterweight
Finally, Diego Sanchez might seem like the weirdest fighter because he does things out of the ordinary. For instance, he is always screaming “Yes” repeatedly at the top of his voice during his fight walkouts. Sanchez says he was highly motivated by a man called Tony Robbins and Daniel Bryan – a former WWE champ.
Diego is the kind of guy that eats raw beef and eggs. Although that didn’t turn out well for him, as he fell sick after. Also, he seems strange, but he is kind-hearted – he served his local community much and fought in honor of a man with Down’s Syndrome.
