    Expanded, updated second edition

    The second edition of the book includes 125 pages of new content, including expanded chapters on: running, rucking, swimming, water confidence, strength training, work capacity, breathing, and building workouts. 

    For the past 10 years, Craig Weller and Jonathan Pope have trained people for the toughest SOF selection courses in the world. They've trained candidates for courses in every branch of the U.S. military, as well as five other countries, including British SAS selection.

    Their clients have a 90% success rate which means 9 of 10 people make it through. (BUD/S and SFAS have drop-out rates ranging from 60-90%, FYI.)

    In Building the Elite, they give a detailed look at their SOF training system - from big-picture principles to practical exercises and programming guidelines.
