Leave your tights, weightlifting shoes and iPods at the door. In this camp, your name doesn’t go on the whiteboard. It goes on your plain white T-shirt.

This is SEALFIT’s Kokoro Camp.

On the line to accept that challenge are CrossFitters including Mikko Salo, Kristan Clever, Rob Orlando, Tommy Hackenbruck, Caity Henniger, Jimi Letchford and Greg Amundson.

In Part 4, Henniger is out with an injury, and Letchford is forced to withdraw due to medical reasons, leaving the remaining candidates to tackle a nighttime team-oriented variation of Murph.

In this version, the team can only go as fast as its weakest link, and the members of each boat crew must find ways to help the others complete the grueling workout.

Of course, the candidates are wearing loaded packs to make things even more challenging.

After the workout, Original Firebreather Greg Amundson calls the SEALFIT version of Murph the most challenging he’s ever done—and apparently Kokoro Camp is going to get even harder.

I guess this a good thing for military wanna be's to think they are really doing military workouts/work.
Especially since they have no fear of having to go to war or being deployed for a year or more separated from family and true safety.It is nice they can train like this and still go home to their nice homes and enjoy the freedoms they all have.
This is truly a great country.

This is amazing to see how mentally tough everyone is going through this camp, and, only 8 hrs in. Amazing!!!

Guys I love the series too, but lets get a little perspective here. As tough as this looks, and is, they are only 8 hours in and will be going for only one weekend. BUDS training in total is 6 months. The first 3 weeks are this tough everyday and those weeks are just to prepare you for week 4 or "hell week" 5.5 days of continuous training with no more that 4 hours of sleep for the entire week. Then three more weeks of training. After that you move on to phase 2 another 8 week time period where the dive training starts but the workouts get even tougher. Phase 3 is land warfare 9 more weeks and the workouts get even more brutal. (to include a 14 mile timed run through the sand)After that its another 3 weeks of jump school and THEN you can call yourself a SEAL! Remember these guys are SEAL's and this is a business for them. They are trying to provide the experience of real training but they are really holding back from what it's really like. If they gave the exact same intensity level that they trained under no one would ever do the camp. How many people tried to quit already? Their job in camp is to push but encorage success in their client. The real training is designed to weed out the weak and unable and unwilling. In the end these guys are like Olympic athletes with guns and lethal skills, and that is why they are our very best. God Bless them all!

Performing a muscle up isn't going to stop anyone from being deployed. I don't know what your remark has to do with these folks getting to go home after the weekend.

Don't get me wrong: this is tough stuff. I guess that's why I manage spreadsheets.

God bess our military...all of 'em.

Brian totally agree with you. Im glad you made that comment.
God bless our military families and thank you for all the sacrifice made on behalf of our country.

Seems like that is seen on every video so far - Kristen kicking it hard and helping those around her. She is inspirational, not just for her physical prowess but everything else she brings to the game.
