#1: Navy SEAL Weight Training book is the answer to how to add weights to the Complete Guide to Navy SEAL Fitness Workout (12 weeks to BUDS). It is a combination of weights, calisthenics, running, rucking, and swimming.
#2: The Complete Guide to Navy SEAL FItness - Stew Smith's first book focusing on high repetition calisthenics, running, and swimming. All you need is a pullup bar, a place to swim, and some running shoes and you are good to go. Classic butt kicking calisthenics workouts!
#3: Tactical Fitness is a 24+ week workout plan that prepares you for the Tactical Fitness Test I developed - Called the Dirty Dozen. It includes lifting, calisthenics, running, swimming, rucking, and the use of gear to add to your tactical workouts like tires, ropes, logs, TRX, etc. AND if you do not have that type of gear - how you can simulate it in the gym.
#4: Maximum Fitness is a 52 Week workout plan that breaks up the year into 4 x 13 week quarters. There is a calisthenics / cardio based cycle, a hardcore calisthenics, running, swimming cycle, a weights and calisthenics mix with run, bike, swim cycle, and a pure lifting cycle for building mass (less calisthenics), easy on the impact (more bike / swim than running).
