BUD/S Navy SEAL Training Tip #5:
Injuries do not get better with time. Injuries will happen at BUD/S – it is inevitable – I had my share. Everyone does. The trick is not to get a debilitating injury. So how do you do this? There are two ways. The best is prevention. Be physically prepared for BUD/S. Increase strength, stamina, and flexibility. Work on technique and form for running, swimming, and calisthenics. The second method is treatment. Though nobody likes a ‘sick call commando’ there are times where you need to get help. Skin infections, chronic, unbearable injuries, etc. need treatment. See the doctor if you know you need medical help.
