Military Athlete

Strong. Swift. Durable

Jackson, Wyoming

The following program is designed to improve performance with a concentration on rucking-based military selections (Green Beret, Delta, The Activity). This is a 8-week program that will require the athlete to train up to 6 days a week. The program incudes a 2 week taper at the end so you arrive at selection fit, not beaten down. This program is designed to be employed on the final 8 weeks before your selection begins. If you are further out then 8 weeks from your selection start date, we recommend you continue with the regular Military Athlete programming. CAUTION! Selections are designed to push the candidate to the edges physically, and see how you perform. While subsequent selections may have many similar events and durations, there are many differences between subsequent selections simply because cadre and the candidate pool change. Further, the various special forces units are secretive about what to expect. The following plan is a suggested preparation program. I do not guarantee that if you complete it, you’ll make it through selection. I’ve never personally attended a selection or even observed one. The following program is based on what I’ve been able to gather about what to expect and some of the suggested train up plans from the Green Berets and “The Activity” plus my knowledge of strength and conditioning. This is free advice. Use it for what you will. Finally, this is a very intense training program. If you have not been completing the Military Athlete programming for several weeks prior, do not be surprised is you are unable to complete these sessions. If you have been completing the Military Athlete programming, the exercises prescribed in this program will be familiar to you.
