The Level 1 SOF Preparedness program is designed for athletes who have completed Level 1 and 2 of the Military Preparedness Program or who have a history of 4 to 10 sessions per week for up to 6-months. We see it as ideal for someone who is looking to embark on a SOF military career and is working towards building up to more elite levels of fitness. 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.


1. Advanced training age. Completed Military Preparation Programs Levels 1 and 2.

2. Relative-strength ratios have not been met.

3. Special Forces benchmark times and reps (eg. run, pack and calisthenics) have been met.

4. Athletes lacks volume and longer term endurance.

5. Awareness to take rest (day/s) as required.

6. High-level of technical ability.

7. No mobility issues or injury restrictions.

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.
