Top Gun Workout Tips – Beach Body – According to a Former Navy Pilot

It’s no secret that Navy Aviators are some of the fittest and most mentally tough around. If you want to get as ripped and fit as these guys and gals, you need to put in the WORK!

We reached out to our friend and former Top Gun Aviator to get some workout tips. Here’s what they had to say:

Tip 1: Focus on Core to Extremity!

Many people think getting fit is simple focusing on isolated movements like a bodybuilder. The truth is, to be truly fit, you need to focus on your core strength. Especially if you are a pilot pulling crazy G Forces!

4 Core Movements we LIKE!

  1. The Deadlift
  2. The Back Squat
  3. The Sandbag Get Up
  4. The Plank Hold in Leaning Rest

Want to focus on these movements in a training plan? Check out SGPT’s 365 Day Training Plan HERE! It’s Designed by former Navy SEALs and Operators. Ideal way to get into Peak Shape!

Tip 2: Don’t forget the Cardio!

Navy Aviators who train and live in San Diego love to Run, Swim, Row and Bike! They get in the milles on the trails, beach in the bay and in the gym. Training for triathlons, running the BUD/s O Course on Saturdays or simply just running on Gator Beach.

Pro Tip: Get a heart rate monitor and get that rate up to 135 – 150 for a good 2 hours!!!

Tip 3: Kettlebells and Dumbbells are your Friend!

Sure we like to train with a barbell and bumper plates but grabbing smaller objects that weigh 20 – 50lbs in each hand can really get you RIPPED and Strong.

4 Workouts we Like:

  1. The Man Maker
  2. Farmer Walk
  3. Kettlebell Snatch
  4. Dumbbell Thrusters

Check out our Tier 1 Operator Level Training Program HERE. Designed for SEAL Team 6 Level Operators. 

Tip 4: Proper Nutrition is KEY! Diet is EVERYTHING! Fuel for performance.
