We see this program as ideal for someone who is looking to embark on a military career and is working towards more building up to more advanced levels of fitness to open up more opportunities for employment within the defence force. It includes basic lifts and techniques using equipment which can be found in most gyms. It's focused around building strength, endurance and developing your energy systems. It also includes weighted carries and military orientated training activities.

The format is set out so that you can do 2 sessions in 1-day, everyday, or spread them out to make sure you can recover prior to the next session. You will need to perform 1 rep-max testing on most of your lifts because the prescribed weights are a % of your 1RM. 

The program pack includes: i) suggested warm-ups; ii) the program; iii) a training journal; iv) a list of No-gear Workouts; v) the list of required equipment; and vi) a list of acronyms and abbreviations used in the program.
