The Traveling Agent Training Plan is an efficient, 8-week, 6 day/week multi-modal training plan purposely built for law enforcement agents and others who’s job requires unpredictable travel, and frequent motel stays.
This is a balanced training plan which concurrently trains strength, work capacity, chassis integrity (functional core), and endurance. It is purposely designed to “flex” to the unpredictable training schedule and location traveling agents and others deal with as part of their work.
Every strength and work capacity/chassis integrity training day in this training plan includes two training sessions – one which can be completed in a fully-outfitted functional fitness gym, and another which can be completed in a typical motel gym complete with a set of dumbbells, pull up bar, bench and treadmill.
Each training session in this plan is designed to last 45 minutes.
This is Version 1 of the plan, designed in November 2021.
The Traveling Agent Training Plan deploys MTI’s “Efficient Strength” programming methodology. “Efficient Strength” combines 2-4 exercises in the same circuit – and each circuit trains total body strength, lower body strength, upper body pressing strength, and upper body pulling strength. Again, each strength training day has two training sessions – one designed for a fully-equipped gym, and another designed for a motel gym.
Work Capacity/Chassis Integrity
This plan trains work capacity and chassis integrity in the same training session, often concurrently. Work capacity efforts range from 10 to 20 minutes. Each work capacity/chassis integrity training day has two training sessions – one designed for a fully-equipped gym, and another designed for a motel gym.
Trained two times/week with an “Athlete’s Choice” 20 + 20 minute moderate pace, multi-mode effort, or a 45-minute single-mode effort. Athletes are given a wide range of endurance choices in an attempt to “flex” the plan to their situation that training day. Endurance choices include running, rucking, step ups, rowing, and spinning.
- Monday: Strength
- Tuesday: Work Capacity, Chassis Integrity
- Wednesday: Endurance – 20 + 20 Minute Multi-Mode, Moderate-Pace Effort
- Thursday: Strength
- Friday: Work Capacity, Chassis Integrity
- Saturday: Endurance – 45-Minute Single-Mode, Moderate-Pace Effort
This training plan is specifically designed to adapt and “flex” to the athletes training situation with the assumption that he/she will have access to a Fully-Equipped functional fitness gym including sandbags (40# for women, 60# for men), plates, barbells, racks, dumbbells and/or kettlebells, plyo boxes, etc, or….. be staying in a motel and have access to the typical motel gym with a set of dumbbells, pull up bar, bench, pull up bar, and treadmill.
How long will sessions last?
These training sessions are specifically designed to be completed in 45 minutes.
Any modifications for women?
These are prescribed in the training plan. For example, if the session calls for Power Cleans at 85/135#, the first load – 85# – is for women, and the second load – 135# – is for men. If the plan calls for 5/10x Push Ups, this means women do 5x push ups, men do 10x push ups.
What if I miss a day?
Begin where you left off when you return to training. This program is progressed – each session builds upon the prior session – so don’t skip a session or skip around. Follow the training sessions in order, regardless.
