Apollo is the 2nd Plan in the Greek Hero Series.
Appollo is a 7-week cycle with strength emphasis. In addition to strength, Apollo concurrently trains work capacity, chassis integrity, and endurance. Tactical agility is not trained this cycle.
This is Version 2 of Apollo, updated March 2019.
Apollo deploys a MTI’s Density strength progression for a full session, three days/week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Our Density strength progression is our most efficient and direct. Apollo’s strength programming is built around the following strength exercises:
- Craig Special – Total Body Strength
- Bench Press – Upper Body Push
- Hinge Lift – Lower Body Strength
- Pull Ups – Upper Body Pull
A single effort, step ups and a run, with an increasing time-based duration.
You’ll complete 20-minute ARTE Circuits 2 times per week. ARTE circuits deploy an Anti-Rotation, Rotation, Total and Extension core exercise in the same circuit.
Not trained this cycle
Moderate-paced unloaded running, 5-7 miles.
- Monday – Strength
- Tuesday – Work Capacity, Chassis Integrity
- Wednesday – Strength
- Thursday – Endurance
- Friday – Strength
