This is a pack based program focused on building strength and endurance for the backcountry athlete tasked who will be tasked with carrying a pack. Hunters, through hikers, endurance race athletes, backcountry skiing/riding, game wardens and tactical athletes will see massive performance improvements with the use of this program.
The program includes 2 days of focused strength workouts, 1 HIIT focused training session, and one work capacity day.
The first 4 weeks build a strong foundation of strength and endurance in preparation for weeks 5-8 where the training becomes more dynamic and further challenges the strength, stamina and movement capacity of the athlete.
We also include a stretching module on every training day to help with flexibility and recovery after tough workouts. The entire program can be completed with a pack or sandbags and helps athletes become accustomed to the demands of carrying and manipulating a loaded pack and other awkward loads.
