Solid Snake Workout



The workout we have come up with today to post is the Solid Snake Workout! This one is inspired by the physique that Solid Snake has in the Metal Gear Video Game. Don’t forget that nutrition plays an important role when striving to achieve various fitness and strength goals!

Research process for celebrities/characters/etc:

When we are researching workouts for different anime characters, celebrities, cartoon characters, athletes, politicians, etc… We go through a fairly large deep dive into the data we can find available through books, movies, comic books, interviews, articles that have been written, and we often even reach out to contact the individuals to gather data if at all possible. Then using our education and knowledge we formulate workout information based on what the research and outreach information obtained.

Solid Snake Stats:

Solid Snake Workout:

Training Volume:

5+ days per week


For this one we’re going straight to the source. We know Solid Snake is a Green Beret, so we’re going to train like one.  Who better to tell us how to do that than  The source.  I’m going to be sharing a workout provided for the first test which is Special Forces Assessment and Selection Course (SFAS).  We’ll call this the beginner workout before the Green Beret workout.  From there I’ll be sharing a much more advanced routine that is based around the Q Test to become a Green Beret after you are chosen for the test (called Special Forces Qualification Course (SFQC)).

Solid Snake Workout: Beginner Workout for SFAS Test Prep

The actual test is as follows:

  • Complete the 2-mile run in at least 12 to 14 minutes
  • 100 sit-ups in 2 minutes
  • 100 push-ups in 2 minutes

If you complete this in it’s entirety (within the time) you get a score of 300.

You need minimum of a 260 to pass.

So here is your prep work:

3-5 days per week of the following:

  • 1-3 mile run (make sure to switch distance each time)
  • 250 Push Ups
  • 200 Sit Ups
  • 150 Air Squats
  • 100 Pull Ups

These can and should be broken down into individual sets.
