The MTI “Greek Hero” Training Packet is composed of our 6 “Greek Hero” training plans developed for military athletes as well as our Military OnRamp plan.
The “Greek Hero” plans deploy the most recent iteration of our Fluid Periodization model where we train the 5 fitness attributes of a Military Athlete:
- Relative Strength
- Work Capacity
- Tactical Speed
- Explosive Power and Agility (TAC SEPA)
- Endurance (running, rucking)
- Chassis Integrity
These 7 training plans were “lab ratted” by our Tactical Lab Rats as part of our daily “Operator Sessions” for military athletes.
Hector, Apollo, Achilles, Ulysses, Perseus and Actaeon were all updated in the Spring and Summer of 2019.

What order should the plans be completed it?
We recommend the order listed above. This is the way we completed them at MTI.
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.
What if I can’t do the whole session?
If you don’t have enough time to complete the whole session, you can split the session into two.
What is the difference between the Greek Hero plans and the Virtue Series Plans?
1. The training plans in both series were both initially completed by our tactical lab rats, including myself, at our facility in Wyoming. The Greek Hero Series deploys our most recent programming. The Virtue Series deploys our previous version.
2. Both Series are designed as day to day programming for tactical athletes. The Virtue Series concurrently trains strength, work capacity, endurance and chassis integrity. The Greek Hero Series trains these attributes plus TAC SEPA (tactical speed, explosive power, and agility).
3. Each plan in the Virtue Series trains these attributes concurrently, but each also emphasizes certain attributes. Fortitude, for example, emphasizes gym-based strength and moderate paced mid distance endurance. Some of the Greek Hero plans likewise have areas of emphasis, but it is more subtle.
The more defined emphasis in the Virtue Series allows me to target these plans to athletes relatively new to our programming, or who need to work on specific areas.
In general, the Virtue programming is simpler, more direct and more “jagged.”
As tools, I can deploy for athletes the Virtue plans are a little more blunt. The Greek Hero plans are more fluid, subtle and sophisticated.
The Virtue Plans make a great foundation for the Greek Hero plans.
