FULL MISSION PROFILE
“Survival of the Fittest”
Welcome to the Full Mission Profile.
Full Mission Profiles are a real world test of your fitness. True fitness requires competency in all areas of physical ability. It’s not good enough to be able to run 5 miles in 35 minutes if you can’t lift a heavy log off a friend and carry him 100 meters to safety. You may be able to battle it out in the toughest of combat conditions to thwart a terrorist cell, but if you can’t pick up and hoof it back to the extract point before the helo leaves, you’ve failed your mission.
– Warning –
These workouts are for elite athletes.
These workouts are designed to mimic the reality of the scenario. In these workouts, you will be pushed farther than you’ve been before. If you don’t think you can make it through one of these missions, don’t do it. (Go through our Basic Training and Brass Ring Cycle Training Programs and come back in a year as an elite athlete!)
Each workout begins with a (fictitious) real-world scenario.
A terrorist cell storms and captures an ally compound on the border of Pakistan. The terrorists take 14 American hostages.
Two mountain climbers are stranded on the top of Denali. One has a broken leg and a massive snow storm is imminent.
The worst has just happened. There’s been an earthquake and you’re trapped in a burning building with family and friends and only you are conscious and uninjured. There are only minutes before conditions become too bad to continue.
Once the scenario is established, the mission is outlined.
Undetected water entrance followed by direct engagement with Tangos. Escape over land to an extraction point three miles NE of the compound.
Helicopter drop-off on the South face of the mountain, approximately 0.25 miles SE of the climbers. Traverse the mountain face to reach the climbers. Provide first aid to the injured climber and prepare for transport. Transport the climbers to the extraction point.
Crawl to an injured victim and free them from debris, then pick them up and carry them to safety. Return for the next one.
Now that you understand your mission, we provide a gut-kicking workout designed to mimic the physical requirements for each mission. For the above examples, the workouts might include:
- Swim 2000 meters with fins, thrusters, squats, push-ups, sumo deadlift high-pulls, and a 3 mile run.
- Pull-ups, squats, thrusters, kettlebell swings, burpees, and overhead squats.
- Bear crawl, deadlift, fireman’s carry, clean, overhead press, and farmers walk.
