Video: South Alabama goes through grueling SEALFit training program

Nothing builds a bond and camaraderie among teammates quite like working yourself to the point of exhaustion and having your brothers right there next to you encouraging you and struggling right along with you. It's one of the basic tenets behind team building and what makes football so great.
South Alabama, like many other programs across the country, put their players go through a Navy SEALFit training regimen recently. The workout looks absolutely grueling, and definitely pushed players beyond what they thought their body was capable of, but it also helps sort out the strong from the weak (mentally and physically) and who the true leaders are going to be heading into the 2014 season.
With non-conference games scheduled against Mississippi State, South Carolina, and Navy on the schedule on top of their Sun Belt opponets, this training could prove to be extremely valuable (and necessary).
