This is an intense, 7-week, 5 day/week cycle with a work capacity emphasis. Busy Operator IV also trains strength, chassis integrity, and endurance but work capacity is emphasized.
The training sessions in this plan are designed for tactical athletes who have limited daily training time, and are designed to last 35-45 minutes.
This is Version 1 of the Plan, Built July 2019
Busy Operator IV 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 a, Total, Rotation and Extension core exercise in the same circuit.

This program is specifically designed for military and other tactical athletes. Completion of the program requires a fully-equipped functional gym, complete with barbells, racks, sandbags and plyo boxes. In addition, you will need Individual Body Armor, 25# weight vest or 25# backpack.
How long will sessions last?
These training sessions are specifically designed to be completed in 30-45 minutes. Work briskly, but not frantically, through these training sessions.
What if I miss a day?
If you miss a day, make up the session you missed the next day and follow the programming as prescribed. Don’t skip ahead.
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.
