Product Description

Mountain Base Artemis continues to deploy our latest iteration of fluid periodization for all around mountain athletes.

This 6-week, 6 day/week, 36x Session Training Cycle combines bodyweight strength training, vertical climbing speed over ground and endurance, aerobic base training, chassis integrity, multi-modal work capacity and climbing stamina in the same cycle.

Here is the weekly schedule:

Monday: Step up assessment or intervals,, Chassis Integrity
Tuesday: Bodyweight Strength, Work Capacity (150m Shuttle Repeats)
Wednesday: Endurance, Chassis Integrity
Thursday: Sprinting & Agility, Long Multi-Modal Work Capacity
Friday: Climbing Stamina

Saturday: Endurance Vertical Hiking for Elevation Gain


  • We leave the barbell mostly alone this cycle and use bodyweight for strength training
  • Pivot back to vertical hiking under load for endurance focus and away from a running/trail running emphasis
  • Climbing shifts from strength to stamina
  • Saturday’s vertical gain efforts will culminate in 4500 vertical feet. This may take up to 3 hours depending upon your venue.

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.
