According to a former US special operations forces trainer, training for survival like you would in the military might change your body and keep you in shape for the rest of your life.

Mark Lauren said to Insider, “You attain your ideal body by training the actions most crucial to your life.” Around the time of 9/11, Lauren joined the US Air Force, underwent grueling training, transitioned into the special operations community, and eventually became the physical trainer for close to 1,000 elite special operations warriors, including SEALs, Rangers, Green Berets, Force Reconnaissance teams, and Air Force commandos. His responsibility was to prepare recruits for anything.Before passing out below, Lauren still maintains the U.S. military record for swimming the farthest distance under water (133 meters, or 436 feet), in two minutes and 23 seconds. Lauren came to the conclusion that tough, prolonged workouts weren’t always healthier for the body because they wasted energy, took longer to recover from, and raised the chance of injury and burnout. Because of this, Lauren created his own bodyweight regimen for his squadrons.
