Ulysses represents the most recent evolution of our day to day programming for operators and military athletes.
This is, 7-Week, 5 day/week training plan concurrently trains strength, work capacity, military endurance (running, ruck running), and chassis integrity (functional core), however, this plan has a subtle emphasis on work capacity and chassis integrity.
Week 7 in the plan is a taper/unload week.
This is Version 2 of Ulysses, Updated May 2019.
Ulysses deploys barbell strength training and deploys MTI’s proven “Big 24” progression. The strength exercises trained are the Back Squat, Bench Press, Weighted Pull Up and Hinge Lift.
Ulysses has a work capacity emphasis and you’ll train work capacity 3 days a week, with events ranging from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.
Ulysses also has a chassis integrity emphasis and you’ll train chassis integrity 3 days/week. Twice per week you’ll complete ART Circuits which deploy an Anti-Rotation, Rotation, Total Body core strength exercise. One day/week you’ll train a Low Back Circuit which trains 4 extension exercises in the same circuit.
