Beretta is the 3rd Plan in our “Gun Maker” packet of plans for full-time LE SWAT/SRT.
Beretta is a 7-week, 5 Day/week, training cycle with an endurance emphasis. Strength, work capacity, chassis integrity, and tactical agility are also trained, but endurance is emphasized.
This is Version 2 of the plan, updated November 2019.
Beretta’s strength work deploys MTI’s Big 24 strength progression for two exercises, Power Clean + Push Press and Weighted Pull Ups. Beretta trains strength two days per week, Tuesdays and Fridays.
Beretta deploys 10-minute and 15-minute work capacity events, one day per week.
Beretta deploys ARTE (Anti-Rotation, Rotation, Total and Extension core exercises) circuits, one day/week. These circuits are 15-20 minutes long.
Beretta deploys two of MTI’s tactical agility drills to train this fitness attribute. You’ll train these drills once per week.
Beretta deploys a 6-mile Run Assessment and follow on interval and aerobic base work. The plan also deploys a “brick” endurance session one day/week, which combines unloaded running with loaded running (IBA/Weight Vest or 45# Ruck). Fridays finish off with a 3-mile, moderate-paced unloaded run.
- Monday – Endurance (6-mile run assessment or intervals)
- Tuesday – Strength, Chassis Integrity
- Wednesday – Tactical Agility, Work Capacity
- Thursday – Endurance (loaded/unloaded “brick” effort)
- Friday – Strength, Endurance (3-mile moderate-paced run)
Beretta requires a fully outfitted functional fitness gym with barbells, bumper plates, racks, dumbbells and/or kettlebells, plyo boxes, pull up bars, sandbags, etc, a track or running area with known 6-mile and 2-mile distances, and a repeating countdown timer (smartphone will work).
