Product Description

Grunt PT is MTI’s day-to-day mission-direct, tactical programming for line unit, active duty soldiers.

After witnessing many top-down, command-driven fitness initiative failures over the past decade, we committed to developing programming line unit soldiers at all levels could implement on their own, with or without command support. In this way we consider Grunt PT a “Fitness Insurgency.”

Grunt PT has it’s foundation in MTI’s elite level “Operator Session” day-to-day programming for SOF personnel and trains the following fitness attributes concurrently:

  • Relative Strength – strength per bodyweight
  • TAC SEPA – Tactical Speed, Explosive Power and Agility
  • Work Capacity – with a sprinting emphasis
  • Chassis Integrity – MTI’s functional core training methodology. More HERE.
  • Military Endurance – running, rucking

Programming Specifics
Grunt PT cycles are 6 weeks long, 5 days/week. Athletes rotate between Strength/TAC SEPA, Work Capacity/Chassis Integrity and Endurance sessions daily.

Here is the training schedule over 2 weeks:

WEEK 1

  • Monday: Strength/TAC SEPA
  • Tuesday: Work Capacity/Chassis Integrity
  • Wednesday: Endurance (running, rucking or both)
  • Thursday: Strength/TAC SEPA
  • Friday: Work Capacity/Chassis Integrity

WEEK 2

  • Monday: Endurance
  • Tuesday: Strength/TAC SEPA
  • Wednesday: Work Capacity/Chassis Integrity
  • Thursday: Endurance (running, rucking or both)
  • Friday: Strength/TAC SEPA

Implementation
Each training day there are 3x Training Sessions: Black, Gray and Green.

Implementation depends upon equipment restrictions.

The Black, Green and Gray Training Sessions are equipment-independent of each other, which gives fitness leaders with equipment restrictions the ability to split the soldiers into 3 groups (Black, Gray, Green) and train different fitness attributes each day to maximize the use of available equipment.

If there are few soldiers and bunches of equipment, all the soldiers in the unit can complete the same training session each day. If not, the soldiers can be split into groups:

 

 

 

 

 

Equipment:
The major equipment limitation of Grunt PT is barbells, bumper plates and racks needed for the strength sessions. In general, fitness leaders will need 1x barbell, bumpers and rack for every 3 soldiers who are training.

Strength session groups will do the warm up together then be split be divided – half will use the barbells for 20 minutes, half will use dumbbells/kettlebells for 20 minutes, then they will swap. The group will come together again for the TAC SEPA final part of the session.

Work Capacity and endurance groups will train together for the entire session.

In addition to barbells and racks, other equipment requirements include plyo boxes, 60# sandbags, and dumbbells.

COMMON QUESTIONS

I’m a Squad Leader with 12 guys counting me in my Squad. How much is the Grunt PT Subscription Cost for me and my guys?
$1 per soldier per month. 12 guys = $12/month.

I’m a Company Commander with 110 soldiers in my company. How much is the Grunt PT Subscription for my company?
$1 per soldier per month. 110 guys = $110/month.

I’m a soldier who will be training alone. How much is the Grunt PT Subscription for me?
$1 per soldier per month. 1 guy = $1/month.

I’m a soldier and me and two other active duty guys from other units want to do Grunt PT together. How much is a subscription for us?
$1 per soldier per month. 3 guys = $3/month.

What’s to stop me from subscribing for $1/month and sharing the training sessions with other guys in my unit?
Your integrity. Please don’t steal from us.

Many of my soldiers have little freeweight training experience. Can they still do Grunt PT? 
Yes. The strength training exercises in Grunt PT are simple, but hard. Doing back squats, front squats, bench presses, power cleans, etc. is not rocket science. Be conservative with loading – light at first – and they will figure it out.

We have everything to train in your equipment list except sandbags. What can we substitute?
Nothing. Be resourceful. You’re an insurgent.

I’m a reservist, but want to do Grunt PT. Can I subscribe?
Sorry, no. Grunt PT is for active duty military only.

My unit requires a unit-wide ruck every Friday. What should I do? 
If you miss a session, start again where you left off in that cycle. So, if you make Session 19, but miss Session 20 because of the unit-wide ruck, complete Session 21 when you return to training and work forward from there.

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.
