That was bad-ass.
Very well made video. That SEAL is a good shot. I'm going to be watching that one.
"Today's mission is freeze your nuts off..."
Wonder what the water temp. actually was.
He was shaking when he got out, I'd say pretty low.
55* Fahrenheit...what is that? Like 20-15* Celsius?
Ha, they had to bring in him to conduct these test. They just needed to go to BUDs and Ranger School during the winter time and you can see fucked up individuals still have the ability to operate.
I am reminded of the Malvesti obstacle course in Ranger School during winter. I have never been so cold in my life (Breaking ice). You are subjected to freezing cold water and have to complete the F'n obstacles. I remember laughing at the small obstacle course as RI's made comments. Oh it sucked, I know Boon can attest. At the end your muscles are so tense that you feel like you have a ton of bricks running, Pretty sure it is the first signs of Hypothermia.
Cool vid, the human body is amazing once you have conquered the mind overbody part.
WOOO that shit was awesome
Go stew what a bad-ass
More like 12.77 (onlineconversion.com)
20 is around 70F (room temp), and 16C=61F (so 15 would be around 59F)
Thanks, nice site. I was using the standard of double it and add 20 to get Fahrenheit to Celcius, so just reversed the process.
Ahh water ops...brrrrr
A SEAL having to perform after being cold and wet, who would'a thunked it? :uhh:
They forgot to make him crawl in some sand :)
According to the email I got back from Stew he was actually joking aorund with the film crew during the lil experiment. He said he used isometrics to keep his temp up in survival range and was really sore the next day.
