Good Morning! This is the only day this post will pear past 5am. From here on out the workouts will post the night before the workout. I’ll monitor the comments section to answer questions about the workout during the day.

The next three weeks will focus on body weight strength training and endurance work. There will be some weight training metabolic events. This week I’ll post links to the cheapest Ruck Suck I can find and post Boot reviews for the coming training ruck marches.

I will post alternative options to gym-based events and additional training for those preparing for selection.
