Tactical Athlete - Modern Athlete Strength

Modern Athlete Strength

Tactical / Military
Coaches
Ben Thebaud and Brian

This is for those without an off-season.

You can't afford to specialize in just one thing. You must be able to accomplish a broad range of tasks over an uncertain amount of time.

That's why our team combines years of operational experience with over a decade of coaching Division 1 college football athletes and military athletes. We pair the understanding of what you need to succeed with the knowledge to get you there, fast.

Here's what you'll find on this program: a heavy focus on developing absolute strength, sprinting, jumping, lateral movement, stamina sessions intelligently designed to target specific energy systems, training prep work to identify and correct imbalances and build a strong trunk, programmed movement targeting ankle, knee, and shoulder health to keep you in the fight.

Here's what you won't find on this program: a bunch of random movements thrown together in a METCON because it's "tactical." You will also not find training that leaves you so gassed each day that you are unable to perform your duties outside the gym.

Optimizing your performance in and out of the gym is our job.

If you're ready to start training with the best then try it 7 days risk free.

"MASS programming is by far the best programming I have ever utilized. Coing off a significant back injury, I thought I'd never lift again. The programing has me squatting and deadlifting very near the weights I was at prior to injury. I'm looking forward to continuing programming through MASS!"
