The Art of Manliness Podcast Episode #23: Navy SEAL Training with Stew Smith

Welcome back to another episode of The Art of Manliness podcast! In this week’s edition we talk to fitness trainer, Stew Smith. Stew is a former Navy SEAL who now devotes himself to helping men prepare for the rigors of Navy SEAL training. In addition to prepping SEALs, Stew works with other men who are preparing for work in the military, special operations, firefighting, and police work.

Stew has published several books on fitness training including The Complete Guide to Navy SEAL Fitness, The Special Ops Workout, and The S.W.A.T Workout. Moreover, Stew has appeared on National Geographic’s Fight Science to showcase his expertise in Navy SEAL training. Stew is one tough dude. Watch him in action!

We discuss the details of SEAL BUD/S training, why some men succeed and most fail at it, and four lessons in manliness that Average Joes can take from Navy SEALs. Additionally, we talk about how men can prepare physically for work as a Navy SEAL and the benefits an average guy can get from SEAL-type fitness training.
