Olympic Athletes Two Days of Hell

We had touched on Navy SEALS training the US Olympic Sailing Team along with some photos of the action last month. Now we have come across video footage that took in the entire crushing experience. It shouldn't be too much of a surprise that a group of people would have a high dropout rate after one day of going through this strenuous training. However, these are Olympic athletes and one may assume that their preparation for the events would be a good primer for what the SEALS had in store for them. 

One can assume that their training is somewhat focused on key muscle groups used and a routine that they have become accustomed to. Mixing things up is what makes the training they got to experience extremely tough to endure and clearly many did not. Of course in the end they will be heading to London to represent our country in games of Sport, which is certainly a whole different ball game than preparing for combat.
