First day of our Reaper cycle. The sprint portion is one of our benchmark tests. I want you to set up two cones 25m apart. Sprint to the far cone, touch your hand to the ground, and do the same with the starting cone. 6 down and backs will total 300m. Knock 1 out, rest 1 minute, then do it again. Your average time is your score. We’ll test this throughout the cycle.

For the Back Squat and OHP choose a weight that challenges the movement, but doesn’t change the movement. Failing the set should not be a consideration. We’ll be adding 10 pounds each week to the squat and 5 pounds to the press. You’ll be squatting twice a week, so add 5 lbs each session.

Pumped to get this cycle started and get ready to crush some PRs.

Hey guys, I'm Brian. I've been in the military around 11 years at this point in 11 and 18 series jobs. I started Modern Athlete Strength Solutions not just to give it the cool nickname of MASS, but to provide free strength and conditioning training to those that want to cut through the BS, not pay $100 for a generic program, and develop their athleticism through qualified S&C coaches. I am also the Executive Director at Operation RSF, a 501c3 non-profit that provides education and community initiatives on how fitness benefits mental health.
