Frank Church is the 2nd Plan in our “Wilderness” Series for Game Wardens, Forest Rangers, Field Biologists, and other natural resource and wildlife professionals.
Frank Church is a 7-week, 5-day/week training cycle with balanced programming to concurrently train strength, work capacity, chassis integrity, and endurance.
This program is named after the Frank Church Wilderness in Idaho as was built in November 2018.
Frank Church deploys MTI’s Density Strength programming and deploys four exercises: Front Squat, Bench Press, Hinge Lift and Chin Ups. The plan deploys an initial assessment and follow-on progressions based on the assessment results. In this way, the plan automatically “scales” top incoming fitness of the athlete, and continues to push him/her throughout the plan.
Frank Church’s work capacity efforts are all 20-minutes long, and multi-modal which combine sandbag exercises or dumbbell exercises, running and step ups. You’ll train work capacity 2 days per week.
Trained two times per week via ARTE Circuits. Each ARTE Circuit deploys an Anti-Rotation, Rotation, Total Body and Extension exercise.
Trained one day per week, via unloaded running at a moderate pace. Distances range from 5-7 miles.
- Monday – Work Capacity, Chassis Integrity
- Tuesday – Strength
- Wednesday – Endurance
- Thursday – Strength
- Friday – Work Capacity, Chassis Integrity
