KR 57: American Sniper Training

thumbnail_19703Watching the movie, American Sniper, was quite an experience. Intense, moving and heartbreaking. Cooper is amazing in his portrayal of Chris Kyle and Clint Eastwood, masterful as usual.

Yet, me, my mind kept tracking to the questions:

  • How does a SEAL get through that training and testing?
  • How strong are these guys, really?
  • What does a day in the life of a sniper look like?
  • How do these guys stay in shape? What is their training?
  • How and what do they eat?

You know, all that stuff that few other were thinking about. Ah, but now that you think about it, some pretty interesting questions. Right?Bradley+Cooper+Bradley+Cooper+Gets+Visit+Girlfriend+PPCFtC01XOLl

Once out of the movie, I contacted my buddy, Nate Morrison, elite military trainer, specialist, multi-decade veteran, medic, mountain assault specialist and one of the founders at RIKR Performance. RIKR is an elite military performance training company.

At 19:08 Nate shares some vital wisdom on how you can learn to handle whatever is going in your life. How to stay sane when the world is crazy and not to loose you sh$% when it hits the fan. Very important stuff! Do Listen!

I wanted to learn what it was really like, get the texture that only an insider could know. And I thought you might wanna know too. So that is precisely what Nate gives us in this episode. He talks about the days, the nights, the food, the MRE’s, chow halls, the mobile (and not so mobile) gyms. He offers some texture to the trauma, and how a warrior handles the situation with as much grace as possible. As usual with Nate, I get more than I plan for. He’s a wealth of experience and knowledge–and he has the smarts and personality to share it with courage and color. Nate Flt Suit Face Pic

I’d be lying if I didn’t say this is one of my favorite shows to date. I learned a lot and gained in my appreciation and understanding of not just the training, health and wellness but the importance of training, the emotional well-being and how we can all learn to better handle stress and pressure of our daily lives.

Please, remove your hats, sit back and enjoy this hour.

I Ask Only 2 Things of You

Of course, as this show is FREE to you, I ask only 2 things of you if you enjoyed it half as much as I did.

1. Comment: Tell Nate and I what you liked most. Ask questions that we forgot to cover. Share your own experience.

2. Take a look at Nate’s World Class Programs: Combat Conditioning, Combat Nutrition and The Ultimate Training Journal.

Like all things Nate does, these are quality programs from a committed master. You may or may not be ready for warrior training but each of these will give you new information, new motivation and challenge you to step up your strength game.
