Product Description

The Shipboard Training Plan is designed for military athletes deployed for extended time, aboard ships – Navy personnel, deployed Marines, etc.

This is a limited equipment training program, recognizing the limited equipment and space available for training aboard most vessels.

Below is the required equipment:

  • Full Set of Dumbbells or Kettlebells – These will be the primary strength training tool for this plan and they are interchangeable. The plan lists dumbbells and prescribes loading in pounds. If you are using kettlebells, use the equivalent kettle bell size – for example instead of 25# dumbbells use 12kg kettlebells, for example.
  • Pull Up Bar
  • 25# Weight Vest, IBA (Individual Body Armor) or backpack/ruck with 25# (be resourceful)
  • 20/24” box for box jumps. Again, be resourceful – a pelican box will work.
  • 16-18” box/step for step ups
  • Foam Roller
  • Optional: treadmill for running (For the endurance sessions/events in this plan, you are given a choice between step up/shuttle combo, treadmill run, or just step ups.

Plan Overview:
This is an intense, 6-week, 5 days/week, 30x Training Session cycle. We recommend you train 5 days in a row, and take 2 days off, total rest while completing this training plan.

This shipboard training plan deploys our “Fluid Periodization” and trains the following fitness attributes for military athletes:

  • Relative Strength
  • Work Capacity
  • Chassis Integrity
  • Endurance

This training plan is a truly “Fluid” cycle which will combine in nearly equal parts strength, work capacity, endurance, and Endurance sessions into a 6-week cycle.

Here is what training looks like over 2 weeks:

  • Day 1: Strength, Chassis Integrity
  • Day 2: Strength, Work Capacity
  • Day 3: Endurance
  • Day 4: Work Capacity, Chassis Integrity
  • Day 5: Strength, Work Capacity
  • Day 6: Work Capacity, Chassis Integrity

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.
