Busy Dad Full Gym 1 (BDFG 1) is an intense, 7-week, 5 day/week cycle with a work capacity emphasis. Strength, chassis integrity, and endurance are also trained. Individual training sessions are purposely designed to last 35-45 minutes. It is the first plan in our packet of Busy Dad Full Gym plans. This plan is designed for busy dads with access to a fully equipped functional fitness gym.
This plan will also work for Busy Moms and includes female-specific loading.
This is Version 1 of the plan, designed in November 2021.
BDFG 1 trains strength using heavy Barbell Complexes and a modified version of MTI’s Big 24 Progression Methodology.
Trained via 10-minute and 20-minute, single mode, and multi-mode events.
You’ll complete a 4-Rounds minute TRE Chassis Integrity circuit one time per week. You’ll complete Total, Rotation, and Extension core exercises in the same circuit.
Trained via a 3-Mile Run Assessment @ follow-on 1-Mile repeats based on your assessment time.
- Monday – Work Capacity
- Tuesday – Strength
- Wednesday – Work Capacity, Chassis Integrity
- Thursday – Endurance
- Friday – Work Capacity
Completion of the program requires a fully-equipped functional gym, complete with barbells, racks, sandbags, and plyo boxes. In addition a 25# weight vest or 25# backpack (dumbbell or plates wrapped in a towel will work for backpack load).
How long will sessions last?
These training sessions are specifically designed to be completed in 35-45 minutes.
Any modifications for women?
These are prescribed in the training plan. For example, if the session calls for Power Cleans at 85/135#, the first load – 85# – is for women, and the second load – 135# – is for men. If the plan calls for 5/10x Push Ups, this means women do 5x push ups, men do 10x push ups.
What if I miss a day?
Begin where you left off when you return to training. This program is progressed – each session builds upon the prior session – so don’t skip a session or skip around. Follow the training sessions in order, regardless.
