357 Strength Design – Online Course

$29.00

• MTI’s 357 Strength Progression deploys a version of our TLU Strength progression paired with complementary short, work capacity efforts to elicit a “hormonal” flush in athletes, in quicken strength gains.
• It can be programmed for multiple exercises in a focused strength cycle, or with 1-3 exercises in a “Fluid” cycle which trains multiple attributes concurrently – strength, work capacity, endurance, agility, etc.
• This is and advanced program design course is designed for professional strength and conditioning coaches, personal trainers and advanced athletes interested and ready to learn advanced program design.

Product Description

357 Strength session design was initially developed in 2011 to prepare an athlete here in Wyoming for a Crossfit competition. It combines elements of our TLU strength session design and with complimentary work capacity efforts in the same training session. The complimentary work capacity training is reported to have a“hormonal flush” effect, forcing the body to overcompensate and therefore decrease recovery time.

As you will see, the TLU strength portion of 357 will have the following characteristics:

  • Train total body, lower body and upper body strength exercise. This is where “TLU” in the name for this design.
  • Train one exercise at “heavy” intensity, one at “moderate” intensity. Use total exercise volume to dictate intensity.
  • Include one “complex” circuit
  • Go to 1 Rep Max (1RM) on the “Heavy” exercise, and use 85% of the athlete’s 1RM for the heavy exercise “working rounds.” 

In conjunction, each lifting session is followed by a short work capacity session varying in time.

As the title “357” implies, each week has a work capacity session that is either 3 minutes long, 5 minutes long, or 7 minutes long. These work capacity efforts are what create the “hormonal flush,” meant to decrease recovery time.

It can be programmed in a heavy strength focused cycle, or in a “fluid” cycle which concurrently trains other fitness demands such as work capacity, endurance, and core strength.

We’ve completed the 357 Strength progression with a wide array of total, lower, and upper body strength exercises – all with good effects.

357 Strength design can be easily implemented with barbell strength exercises. By the end of this course, you will be able to apply this methodology to one exercise in any cycle, or in a focused, strength cycle.

Our Stuff Works. Guaranteed.

By Rob Shaul

I received notes frequently from athletes hesitant to purchase a subscription or training plans asking me to sell them on why they should make the purchase.

While I understand the question, I’m not a salesman - so I can't put a hard sale on anyone for our programming.

I can tell them the process we go through to design our programming.

We begin with extensive research on the fitness demands of the event, identify the exercises and progressions which sport specifically meet those demands, chose end-of-cycle goals, and program backward to design the plan.

Then we test the cycle on ourselves and our lab rats here in Wyoming. We document, note what works and doesn’t work, re-assess, and make changes and modifications.

Then we publish the programming in the form of one of our plans or as part of our subscription daily training sessions for tactical and mountain athletes.
We don’t stop there - our daily programming is the “tip of the spear” for our programming evolution. We use these sessions to learn and make continuous improvement.

As we learn more and improve, we go back, and update the sport-specific training plans on the website. For example, we’re currently on Version 5 of our Ruck Based Selection Training Plan and Version 3 of our Dryland Ski Training Plan and Version 4 of our Big Game Back Country Hunting Training Plan.

We understand our programing isn’t cheap, but we believe it’s a great value. The $79 for the Ruck Based Selection Training Plan, and $39 for the Dryland Ski Training Plan reflect the, research, work, innovative theory, iteration, testing and feedback we've put in and received to make these plans effective.

All that matters for us is outside performance, and we feel strongly that Our Stuff Works in the real world.

Here’s our guarantee:

1) Individual Training Plan Purchase:
If you purchase an individual training plan, follow it as prescribed before your season/event/pft/selection, and if you don’t feel you were physically ready for your season/event/pft/selection, and/or didn't see dramatic improvements in your early season performance, we’ll refund your money, no questions asked.

2) Athlete's Subscription
If you purchase an Athletes' Subscription, follow the training sessions as prescribed, and are not satisfied with the quality of the programming, notify us within 30 days of purchase, and we'll refund your money, no questions asked.
