Re: Has anyone ever heard of mountain athlete?

I dont think the main aim of robs two sites ( military & mountain athlete) is performance at the games.

i view them more as almost spp type training for tasks away from the gym and not competion in crossfit enviroment.
Ive switched up to follow follow robs stuff for about 3 months now and i like it,
i have no desire to ever compete in the games. i use crossfit / gpp type training purely to be better at my job and im sure there must be others like me ?

Re: Has anyone ever heard of mountain athlete?

Matt I too follow the Military Athlete site although not exactly for job performance considering I'm and engineer and well that doesn't require much work capacity. But love the hour of work anyway and figure I'd give a persective from someone who has followed the programing for a while.

Strengthwise your numbers will improve. 8 months in at 163lb bodyweight

Squat Clean 230 from 205
Front squat 265 from 240
Back Squat 305 from 275
Snatch 165 from 132
Bench 275 from 245

The endurance cycle will test you mentally and is real tough like 100 curtis p's for time and such.. Also the long runs sometimes 7-8 miles long, rucks with 40 lbs, 2 workouts a day..

His operator ugly test is a good one and I scored 116 last time I ran it.

I'd encourage people to give it a shot to switch things up If the games are not your motivation

And airsoft rifles are incorporated now which is a neat change for us non-military personel.

Re: Has anyone ever heard of mountain athlete?

Am I missing something or does mountain athlete charge a fee for you to get access to the daily workouts.

mtn athlete used to be free, with great access to videos, in depth commentary etc. They switched to a fee structure recently. Same route that gym jones took.

Luckily, I found the site shortly before they introduced the fee. Being a stingy college student, I copied and pasted about 100 of the workouts into a Word document.

Re: Has anyone ever heard of mountain athlete?

I just realized that the workouts I got were from Military Athlete, not Mountain Athlete. I think they are very similar, so I'll assume you're still interested.
