Wrangell-St. Elias is the 3rd Plan in our “Wilderness” Series for Game Wardens, Forest Rangers, Field Biologists, and other natural resource and wildlife professionals.
Wrangell-St. Elias is a 7-week, 5-day/week training cycle with a slight endurance emphasis. The also concurrently trains strength, work capacity, and chassis integrity.
This program is named after the Wrangell-St. Elias Wilderness in Alaska as was built in November 2018.
Wrangell-St. Elias deploys MTI’s Efficient Strength programming using dumbbells and/or kettlebells. The Efficient Strength programming combines a total body, upper body press, lower body, and upper body pull exercise in one circuit. Again, the plan uses dumbbells and/or kettlebells for its strength programming.
Wrangell-St. Elias’ work capacity efforts are all 10-minutes long and have a sprint emphasis.
Trained two times per week. Once using an ART circuit (Anti-Rotation, Rotation, and Total Core exercise) and second, with a low-back focused circuit of four extension exercises.
Trained three days per week. Mondays you’ll either do a step up assessment or step up intervals. Wednesdays you’ll either run a 6-mile assessment or complete 2-mile intervals. Fridays you’ll complete a 30-minute AMRAP which combines step ups and running.
