  • Training For Military

    Hello BBM,

    I am a Soldier and have found your content within the last year. You guys have helped me in so many ways with my training and reaping lots of gainzzz. My question is since the military requires me to be good at multiple markers of fitness such a strength, cardiovascular endurance and speed. Should I just run the General S&C and repeat for multiple cycles? Or can I run the General S&C then go into PBII or Endurance template? Or does it not really matter how I chose which program to run next just as long as I’m training? I have been training continuously for year. I want to be as fit as I can, in case I am able to attend additional military schools such as Airborne, Air Assault, Ranger etc, where I will be tested physically throughout the course. Additionally, how can I go about adding in rucking to my training? Could I just give rucking it’s own training day as long as I am not feeling overtrained and gradually increase mileage? I hope this question makes sense in what I’m asking for. Thank you for all you guys do!

    Very Respectfully,

    Brandon

    Hey Brandon,

    A lot of these answers depends on your current level of fitness and immediate needs for your occupation. Off the cuff, I'd run Gen S/C 1 without rucking and then add rucking in the second time around.
    I'd do rucking as part of your GPP rather than it's own day.

      Hi Jordan,

      I just bought the S&C template also, and would like to please inquire about a few things before starting this template without starting new thread (apologize for the hijack):

      1) is week 6 main movements a typo? I don't want to give away too much info, but basically it goes [email protected], [email protected], @7,@8. So a high single, then ramping back up again to heavy triple rather than straight to heavy triple.

      2) i'm very intrigued by the purpose of the EMOM work. It looks to be very low fatigue (low rep, low fatigue/RPE, "high velocity"), does this improve lifting light loads at fast speeds, which I guess is good for athletes? I honestly have no idea and am genuinely curious.

      3) i understand the point of the template is to gain strength and conditioning over a variety of context and modalities. With that said, instead of switching squat and deadlift variations in week 6, is it ok to keep the same movements throughout the entire template? I just love back squatting and trap bar deadlifting.

      4) (unrelated Q) listened to podcast ep #154... I don't expect any concrete dates, but any general timetables for when the new templates (super-total, low fatigue, youth, etc.) may come out? Super excited for those

      Thank you so much!

          1) Nope, that's right.

          2) It's training volume at high-ish velocity, with a conditioning component, completed in a short period of time. It's a compromise.

          3) If you want, sure.

          4) Hopefully before Turkey Day, if I can help it.

            Thank you for taking the time to answer! Looking forward to those new templates! Also, I'm excited and eager to see what numbers you'll put up in your up and coming meet, your vlogs area always great quality (good luck btw).

            Thanks,
