Has anyone else given this a shot? I'm a 230lb power lifter but the power endurance and work specific workouts kick my butt.
I had the chance to do some of the work with team guys on deployment and those guys are freaks.
A quick google search will pull up the PDF right away.

No, never seen it before that I know of and although I have a gym membership, I don't go nearly as often as I should.

I have been using this free smartphone app for fitness training for the last 15 months called "Sworkit". It uses HIIT (High Intesity Interval Training) principals. 30 seconds per move, 10 seconds to switch positions then a new position. Every 3 minutes you get a10 second break.

When I startered doing this, on a relatively easy workout, I thought I was going to die after 5 minutes!

Now, I'm doing a very intense difficult workout for 32 minutes! I've lost 30#, and 3+" on my waist. Their motto is "no gym, no problem". I've even customized my workout for ruck training to work on the muscles needed for this.

I've been pretty successful in mountain provinces with heavy work on powerlifting, intervals , and plain hill rucking. But this is another level of conditioning I wasn't ready for

Yeah Huskerpatriot HIIT can be brutal. I've been trying litvinov conversions (8 heavy squats, 400m sprint, 3 rounds) and I'm jelly but it really helps me move fast under load

This workout is simple body resistance, but is really getting me fit. I'm going to start incorporating "sandbag training"

Sandbags are great. I've come to believe simple barbell strength and speed/conditioning/rucking work is king. Most of the SF types I've worked with were on the same page, but they'd mix in sandbag and KB work.
Also, sandbag getups really suck.
