Packet Focus: Mountain Base Greek Heroine Packet

MTI’s Mountain Base programming trains climbing fitness concurrently with strength, work capacity, chassis integrity, and endurance.

By Rob Shaul

The Greek Heroine Packet of training plans represents the latest evolution of our Fluid Periodization to day-to-day programming for multi-sport mountain athletes.

The four Greek Heroine Plans, Helen,  Artemis, Danae and Atalanta together represent 24 weeks of mountain directed programming, that trains 5 fitness attributes of a mountain athlete concurrently:

  • Relative Strength
  • Work Capacity
  • Climbing Fitness
  • Endurance (running, uphill hiking under load)
  • Chassis Integrity

Each of these plans were completed by the mountain “Lab Rats” at our Jackson Facility. All the plans in this series are 6 weeks long (including an assessment/unload week) and train 5-6 days/week.

These training plans are designed to be completed in the gaps between sport-specific train ups for specific mountain sport seasons, adventures or events.
