I can't think of the phrase "ultimate workout" without immediately thinking about the way Navy SEALs train. They are hard core and even trying to attempt their workout requires that you are already in good shape. Needless to say, their workout is advanced and not something a beginner should attempt without the proper guidance and clearance from their doctor.
What a Typical Navy SEAL Workout Consists of:
- Running (a lot of it!)
- Push-ups, Pull-ups, Sit-ups, Dips (plenty of repetitions)
Looking at the list above, you may think, that doesn't seem so bad. Just take a look at the following schedule posted on the NavySeals.com web site. You can see from the routines why they are in such excellent physical condition. Most of the exercises require only the use of their own body weight as resistance which is great for strength conditioning. You can take a glimpse of the video below to see just how intense their workouts are.
