RUN BETTER, LONGER, FASTER
Crush Your Next 5k (5-Week Program)
This 5-Week Training Program will shave minutes off of your next 5k race or short distance run times. Athletes have used this program to improve their short-course running ability while still maintaining exactly what they are doing in the gym, which means you can run fast and still be strong!
If your goal is to improve your run times over 1, 2, or 3 miles then this program will help you get fast without giving up your strength gains.
Strategic Endurance (16-Week Program)
Running is part of life in the military and you probably need to get better at it. Fortunately, for you, I don’t believe in logging dozens and dozens of miles of long slow distance running in order to get better.
In fact, the roots of all of the endurance work we do at Strategic Athlete follows my philosophy of the “minimum effective dose”. Which means you winning that race or crushing your running goal matter FAR more than the number of miles you run each week. If you want to start accumulating results instead of just miles then this 16-week program is just the ticket.
GENERAL STRENGTH & CONDITIONING
Dominate Your Next PFT (4-Week Program)
The Strategic Athlete PFT Domination program is a 4-week program designed to help you improve your PFT score. Currently, there is a USMC, Army, Navy, & Air Force version developed for each branch specifically.
The best part about this program is that your results are guaranteed. If you sign up, complete the program, and not get a better score just shoot me an email and I’ll refund your purchase immediately.
Strategic LEO (8-Week Program)
This 8-Week program was designed to give you the basic strength, conditioning, endurance, and general fitness you need to stay safe, healthy, and effective on the job.
With 5 – 6 workouts each week that require nothing more than a pull-up bar and a place to move around & run you’ll be able to stay in the fight and conquor any fitness test thrown at you. This program also includes a super effective strength program for those of you with access to a barbell!
RUCK LONGER, FASTER, STRONGER
Strategic Ruck (4-8 Week Programs)
The Strategic Ruck program(s) offer comprehensive ruck based training to help you CRUSH your next ruck based event such as a GORUCK Challenge/Tough. You’ll be able to pick from three different programs.
- The Light (Events <10mi) program is designed as an entry level plan to build your rucking and body weight ability.
- The Challenge (Events 10-20mi) program includes a more advanced rucking program along with both body weight and gym-based strength & conditioning programs.
- The Heavy (Events >20mi) program is an advanced program designed to help you crush those 24+ hours rucking events or get you SERIOUSLY prepped for a military school.
If you don’t have equipment you’ll still be able to follow any of these plans! You’ll also get an iron-clad 30-day money back guarantee.
Strategic Squat (4-Week Program)
Wanna get stupid strong? This program can add 20+ pounds to your back squat in just 4-weeks. If you’re new to barbell strength training your results could be even better!

What People Think About Training With Strategic Athlete
I’ve been following the workouts so far, and I must say I’m pretty surprised how effective of a workout I’m getting from just bodyweight movements. As a National Guardsman, I am responsible for my own conditioning and your workouts seem to be exactly what I’ve been looking for as far as the type of conditioning I need. – Robbie
The first time I ran through the program I started at a 26:15 5k, and ended up going down to a 23:47. I waited a few months and did it again after also doing CrossFit and I’m down to a 20:45 now. – Lane
Just checking in to let you know that during the first mile of my test yesterday I blew about 30 seconds off of my typical run times. Pretty cool! – Kenyon
First off I have to say thank you. I went from having a 190-210 score on my APFT, to having a 280! I finished up week 6 unsure of my progress and sure enough, I conquered it. – Josh
First I want to tell you that your training programs are epic…. I am currently active duty Army and having used your 5K Program for about 3 months. Within the last 2 weeks, I switch to your APFT Domination program adding that to the tail end of my lifting sessions and the have paid major dividends. I’ve never been much of a runner, but I have noticed a huge difference in my sprinting and being able to maintain my split times. Plus my endurance is getting better and better. I have an APFT next week and I can’t wait to let you know how I do. Keep doing what you do!!!!! -Jay
I’ve been on the program for 3 weeks and I’ve dropped 2 minutes off of my 2-mile time! Feels great. Can’t wait to see where I am next time trial! -Nate
I got a 21 sec improvement on my 1.5-mile time making a pass on the test a bit more comfortable than cutting it fine. The biggest improvement for me was the push-ups. Was working back from a shoulder injury and went from 21 in 2 mins following a year’s rehab, up to 38 all pain-free. -Lucy
I followed your 5k and APFT prep plan over the past 5 weeks and took a pt test this morning so I wanted to update you. My sit-ups went from 60 to 74, and my run when from 15:30 to 14:27. -Jeffery
The 5k program is awesome! I was highly surprised when I saw my run time on my latest PT Test go down. I really appreciate the programming and it is so much better than logging long runs! Thanks again I love the training! – Blake
I have never ran so fast in my life! (After dropping her 1-mile time from 9:38 to 6:56) Boom. Thanks! – Ranae
“Amazing program, first time completing a program without shin pain! The drills have really helped improve my form. I’m a professional Jiu-Jitsu athlete, and this was the perfect companion to my normal training.” – Rick
I think these emails have helped me tremendously already. I ran a 20:53 Friday for a PFT to see where I was and I employed the technique that you had taught me. For only training for a short amount of time, this is amazing to see me improved already. You’ve done right by me and I thank you for what you’ve done so far with the emails. I should be running another one in April and as soon as that happens, I’ll inform you of how I did. Thanks a ton for all you’ve done. Can’t thank you enough. (This is from my free email content alone!) -Brad
Even with the busy training cycle still crushed my last run from a 42 min to 38:26 couldn’t be happier with the program and that’s with me missing a few days here and there do to work once I get back and get a more relaxed schedule Ima restart and stay true to it! Appreciate the help! -Pat
I just wanted to give you a shoutout on your program. I just finished week 1 of strategic 5K, which I’m using to prep for my upcoming APFT, and I clocked my fastest 1-mile time that I can remember, a 6:55 1 mile, as opposed to my typical 7:15 to 7:30 1 mile. So, although it sucks running, the program seems to be helping, so thanks. -Jeff
I bought the Strategic 5k training plan – worked great. Got my PFT down to 19:15 after spending several years around the 22-minute mark, all without sacrificing any strength at the gym. -Dez
I just wanted to let you know that the PFT Domination Program really works wonders! Although I admit that I didn’t follow it in verbatim due to the time crunch on deployment, I ran a 293 PFT when broken down, had 20 pull-ups, 100 crunches, and a 19:01 3-mile run. I will continue to use this program to improve myself, and also pass the word to other Marines that wish to have the same success as I did. -Daniel
I just wanted to let you know that I’m seeing great results from your program with a lot less volume… I’ve been doing it for 2 weeks and I modified the “time test” to 1.5 miles for my test rather than 1 mile. A couple of weeks ago I was running a 14:15 (failing) 1.5 mile. Today I ran a 12:55 (passing) 1.5 mile. I’ve never run that fast before. -Dave
The Strategic Ruck Heavy program was spot on for what I needed to crush my Goruck Heavy. It even helped me have the strength and endurance to complete the Tough and the Light all in the same weekend. Highly recommended! -Josh
The program is great! After pretty much the whole summer spent training my deadlift was barely a 405lb last week and yesterday during the 10 minute period I crushed a 435lb pull! I feel stronger after every workout! -Tyson
Still recovering from calf soreness. But, I did take off on 1.5 mile run using pose method and cut 2 min off my usual time. Impressed me because I haven’t run in almost 3 weeks! -Justin
I am headed to TBS in a week and just completed my last PFT before checking in. Unfortunately, I was not able to complete the full program but I managed to knock off nearly 2 minutes from my run time going from 23:34-21:45 in just 4 weeks. Thanks for the outstanding programming, I will continue to use it and recommend it throughout my career. I was able to improve my form and pace with every workout and I have kept my strength. Thank you again. -Dan
Just over a month ago I ordered your Strategic Squat Program. I needed something to get me out of a rut. I’ve been squatting for some time with a few ups and downs but lately, I was happy with just doing 5×5 at 50% of my best ever max. On day one I tested my max at 325 beltless. A weight that I used to do for many reps was now my max, but it was a starting point. After completing your program I hit an EASY 370 beltless back squat. The MOST I’ve ever even attempted without a belt. Your program was ALL I did those weeks and I did it at home. Thanks! -Chris
We just got the overall scores back and my PFT ended up improving by 34 points, most of which was from the 3 miles. just from the two weeks, I was able to complete after starting over again my time dropped by just over 2 minutes. I couldn’t be more grateful for the program and look forward to the end result after I completely finish. once again, thank you, sir! -Ryan
Im feeling great. Everything you asked was doable although not always pleasurable. Went from 16:00 to 14:00 in 5 weeks. And at the end I’m not dying and winded. Thank you for a great and efficient program. -Robert
Thanks the program helped me a lot. Before I started the program I ran a 21:10. I ran 3 miles 2 days ago in 19:37 and I didn’t feel tired after. Thank you!! -Andrew
Ok… As promised, post-Annual PT Test results: Weight lowest I’ve been in years, down 24 lbs since June. Waist max points. Pushups max points. Sit Ups… 4 reps away from max points. Run… THIS is where you’ll be happy to hear the results. 1 min 4 seconds faster than last year!!! 11:18 Mile split was 7:40 Considering that I’ve been consistently in the 8:20ish Range. Consistent pace, kept my count as steady as I could… and just pushed at the end. -Jared
So I took my APFT, I did better on my run than usual, cutting about two minutes off my time. I was running two miles about 18 minutes about 3 weeks ago and I ran a 16:15, not really fast but I did improve. So I will continue to use your program and maybe look into the other programs. Thank you, Sir. – Jin
2 years ago, I failed my 2-Mile Run on the APFT with a 22:00. Over the past couple years, I improved to a 17:45-18:30 range, but was stuck for over a year and felt like I hit rock bottom. However, after doing merely one month of the 5k plan I PR’d to a 16:55!! – Irene
Hey PJ, great results I’m getting!! My previous IST run time was a trash score of 13 minutes, 45 seconds and it literally jumped up to 12.30 in a matter of 3 weeks! Your program is amazing and as I become more consistent with it, I’m excited to see what I can accomplish each time I’m tested! Thank you again! – Michelle
My main metric was my 2-mile time which improved by over 2 minutes. One side effect of the program is that it made running suck less. – Nick
I went from 24:05 (totally dead at the finish) PFT to a 22:20 using your program! – Josh
I hate running, and I felt like I sucked at it. But I’ve been working the drills you sent as best as I can between school and an off-season job. I can already see such a huge difference!! More importantly, I can feel a huge difference. I already feel like I’m gonna be able to tackle next season with a ferocity I didn’t have last year. This program is absolutely life-changing. – Amy
