As for the duration of workout, selection for TACP or SFAS has multiple 2ish hour long pt sessions. While the Basic Recon Course is designed to take and build up people through long PT sessions. SFAS, they expect you to show up, ready to put out.
As for workout duration, I cannot transition straight into SEALfit workouts, which are all around 1.5 hours long, in my current physical shape. I'm building up my body (maxing the APFT) before I make the jump into longer duration workouts.
Oh, btw, don't be surprised if you crossfit style workouts at some of the higher military schools. SWCC, TACP, CCT, PJ, and a few others all use that style of training.
Dude, I'm well aware on the over under grip. I wouldn't be able to pull 350+ on DL with double overhand. I'd lose the bar. I'm saying it's extremely dumb and unsafe to do a full clean starting from the floor with an over under grip. Look at them. They rest all the weight on their bellies while switching hands. It's just dumb.
I saw your before and after pictures and congrats on the progress thus far. I would at least suggest you start doing some daily cardio. A mile around the track each day at your own pace, steadily increasing
Just a thought, I would assume BT would kick your ass into shape a bit and give you some of the conditioning necessary for becoming a specialist

Once I can run again I'll restart my 5k running plan again .
As for relying on basic to get you in shape for a high level SF course. Don't rely on it, you don't go from basic right to selection (except for SWCC, CCT, and PJ). For CCT and PJ you better enter BMT maxing the PAST test or you will fail, AF BMT is like a summer camp, it's a joke. Army SF programs will have you spending at least 3 months at OSUT where pt isn't as hard as BCT. You can loose a lot of your gains at OSUT.
Don't rely on basic to build your muscular endurance, instead go into whatever branch you want maxing their PFT for SF. I've got two ex-army SF men preaching this to me.
Btw, you may want to read what I quoted, you said mixed grip deads are unsafe

crossfit and strongman go hand in hand. so yes you can blame crossfit lol
i agree entirely. completely stupid.

They're too completely separate athletic disciples. Crossfit in no way shape or form uses any of the events in a strongman competition nor does strongman use any crossfit style workouts in a strongman competition.
Now, I'm going to politely ask you to leave my log and don't post here again. You're not going to sway me from crossfitting and picking up a simple cardio/strength training routine simply on the basis that I'm going get bored with it fast and stop doing. I'm not going to sit here and debate it, nor do I want to. I know what works for me and is helping me achieve my military goals. If you want to debate it's effectiveness there are many sites that'll allow you to do that. If you want to bash it, go to bodybuilding.com. This is where I like to log my workouts, that's pretty much it. Good day.
