Jedediah Smith is the 1st Plan in our “Wilderness” Series for Game Wardens, Forest Rangers, Field Biologists, and other natural resource and wildlife professionals.
Jedediah Smith is a 5-week cycle with balanced programming to concurrently train strength, work capacity, chassis integrity, and endurance. This is a bodyweight-only training program.
This program is named after the Jedediah Smith Wilderness in Western Wyoming as was built in November 2018.
Jedediah Smith deploys bodyweight-only strength programming. 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. You’ll train strength three days per week.
Jedediah Smith’s work capacity efforts are all 10-minutes long, and shuttle sprint or similar focused. You’ll train work capacity 2 days per week.
Chassis Integrity is the name of MTI’s functional core strength training methodology. Jedidiah Smith deploys core exercises as part of its bodyweight strength training assessment, as well as a low-back focused core circuit two days per week.
Trained two ways. First, a 3-Mile Running Assessment and follow-on 1-mile intervals 1 day per week based on your most recent assessment results. Second – moderate-paced step ups wearing a 25# weight vest or backpack. You’ll complete step ups 1 day per week and finish at 700.
