Busy Dad Full Gym 5 (BDFG 5) is an intense 7 week, 5 day/week training plan multi-modal training plan built for busy parents who have access to a fully equipped functional gym. BDFG 5 is the fifth and final plan in our Busy Dad Full Gym training packet.
BDFG 5 has a slight strength and work capacity emphasis. Endurance and chassis integrity are also trained.
Each training session in this plan is designed to last 35-45 minutes.
Busy Moms can also use this training plan. It includes loading for female athletes.
This is Version 1 of the plan, designed in November 2021.
BDFG 5 combines the strength variety of MTI’s TLU strength methodology with the strength event programming from MTI’s Density strength progression. You’ll train strength three days per week, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

BDFG 5 deploys 10-minute, gym-based work capacity events on strength days, and 20-minute gym-based grinds on Fridays.

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.
