This program follows a general format and gets progressively harder each week, until week 8, when the training tapers down into the start of School.
The plan is “sport-specific” to the fitness demands you’ll face at TACP school – specifically the TACP OFT 2 preparation, bodyweight work capacity “smoke sessions,” running, and rucking. It aims to build your “combat chassis” – legs, core, lungs and heart, overall durability, and endurance/stamina for long days on your feet, in kit, during school.
The plan includes:
- Focused Testing and progressive training for the TACP OFT 2 (Battlefield Airman Fitness Assessment)
- Heavy (65#) Rucking
- Bodyweight Work Capacity Smokers
- Distance Running
- Intense “mini-events” to prepare you for the long days
The plan has 48 Total Training Sessions. It is intended that you’ll train Monday – Saturday, and take Sunday’s off.
