Perseus represents the most recent evolution of our day to day programming for operators and military athletes. This is a balanced, 7-Week, 5 day/week training plan which concurrently trains strength, work capacity, military endurance (running, ruck running), chassis integrity (functional core), and tactical agility in relatively equal proportions.
Week 7 in the plan is a taper/unload week.
This is Version 2 of Perseus, Updated July 2019.
Perseus deploys MTI’s Efficient Strength progression. This progression combines a total body, lower body, upper body press and upper body pull exercise in one circuit.
Perseus deploys 10-minute and 20-minute, gym-based, multi-modal work capacity events.
ARTE circuits, once per week and a Low Back Circuit, once per week. Each ARTE Circuit deploys an Anti-Rotation, Rotation, Total Body and Extension core strength exercise. The Low Back Circuits in Perseus deploy 3x Low Back exercises and a stretch.
Trained once per week during Achilles. Three different tactical agility drills are deployed, both unloaded and loaded.
Trained two ways: (1) 5-7 Mile moderate-paced runs, and; (2) 2-3 Mile, moderate-paced ruck at 45#.
- Monday: Strength, Chassis Integrity
- Tuesday: Tactical Agility, Work Capacity
- Wednesday: Endurance (Ruck Running)
- Thursday: Strength, Chassis Integrity
- Friday: Work Capacity, Endurance (Run)
