This 4-Week Squat Program is Designed to Get You Stupid Strong & Build Legs That Won't Quit.

Okay... But does it actually work?

Chris was able to add 25# to his back squat during this 4-week program

While adding 25# may not sound like a big jump for a beginner it is a totally different story for someone who is already squatting 385 like Chris. He finished out with a 410# personal record.

Don't Trust Chris? That's cool... Let's hear from Allan:

Not only did Allan crush a new personal best but was so happy he was asking me for a program to improve his press as well!

What People Think About Training With Strategic Athlete

"The first time I ran through the program I started at a 26:15 5k, and ended up going down to a 23:47. I waited a few months and did it again after also doing CrossFit and I’m down to a 20:45 now." – Lane

"Just checking in to let you know that during the first mile of my test yesterday I blew about 30 seconds off of my typical run times. Pretty cool!" – Kenyon

"First I want to tell you that your training programs are epic…. I am currently active duty Army and having used your 5K Program for about 3 months. Within the last 2 weeks, I switch to your APFT Domination program adding that to the tail end of my lifting sessions and the have paid major dividends. I’ve never been much of a runner, but I have noticed a huge difference in my sprinting and being able to maintain my split times. Plus my endurance is getting better and better. I have an APFT next week and I can’t wait to let you know how I do. Keep doing what you do!!!!!" -Jay

"I’ve been on the program for 3 weeks and I’ve dropped 2 minutes off of my 2-mile time! Feels great. Can’t wait to see where I am next time trial!" - Nate

"I got a 21 sec improvement on my 1.5-mile time making a pass on the test a bit more comfortable than cutting it fine. The biggest improvement for me was the push-ups. Was working back from a shoulder injury and went from 21 in 2 mins following a year’s rehab, up to 38 all pain-free." - Lucy

"I followed your 5k and APFT prep plan over the past 5 weeks and took a pt test this morning so I wanted to update you. My sit-ups went from 60 to 74, and my run when from 15:30 to 14:27." -Jeffery

"The 5k program is awesome! I was highly surprised when I saw my run time on my latest PT Test go down. I really appreciate the programming and it is so much better than logging long runs! Thanks again I love the training!" – Blake

"I have never ran so fast in my life! (After dropping her 1-mile time from 9:38 to 6:56) Boom. Thanks!" – Ranae

“Amazing program, first time completing a program without shin pain! The drills have really helped improve my form. I’m a professional Jiu-Jitsu athlete, and this was the perfect companion to my normal training.” – Rick

"Even with the busy training cycle still crushed my last run from a 42 min to 38:26 couldn’t be happier with the program and that’s with me missing a few days here and there do to work once I get back and get a more relaxed schedule Ima restart and stay true to it! Appreciate the help!" - Pat

"I just wanted to give you a shoutout on your program. I just finished week 1 of strategic 5K, which I’m using to prep for my upcoming APFT, and I clocked my fastest 1-mile time that I can remember, a 6:55 1 mile, as opposed to my typical 7:15 to 7:30 1 mile. So, although it sucks running, the program seems to be helping, so thanks." - Jeff

"I bought the Strategic 5k training plan – worked great. Got my PFT down to 19:15 after spending several years around the 22-minute mark, all without sacrificing any strength at the gym." - Dez

"I just wanted to let you know that I’m seeing great results from your program with a lot less volume… I’ve been doing it for 2 weeks and I modified the “time test” to 1.5 miles for my test rather than 1 mile. A couple of weeks ago I was running a 14:15 (failing) 1.5 mile. Today I ran a 12:55 (passing) 1.5 mile. I’ve never run that fast before." - Dave

"Still recovering from calf soreness. But, I did take off on 1.5 mile run using pose method and cut 2 min off my usual time. Impressed me because I haven’t run in almost 3 weeks!" - Justin

"I am headed to TBS in a week and just completed my last PFT before checking in. Unfortunately, I was not able to complete the full program but I managed to knock off nearly 2 minutes from my run time going from 23:34-21:45 in just 4 weeks. Thanks for the outstanding programming, I will continue to use it and recommend it throughout my career. I was able to improve my form and pace with every workout and I have kept my strength. Thank you again." - Dan

"I'm feeling great. Everything you asked was doable although not always pleasurable. Went from 16:00 to 14:00 in 5 weeks. And at the end I’m not dying and winded. Thank you for a great and efficient program." - Robert

"Thanks the program helped me a lot. Before I started the program I ran a 21:10. I ran 3 miles 2 days ago in 19:37 and I didn’t feel tired after. Thank you!!" - Andrew

"2 years ago, I failed my 2-Mile Run on the APFT with a 22:00. Over the past couple years, I improved to a 17:45-18:30 range, but was stuck for over a year and felt like I hit rock bottom. However, after doing merely one month of the 5k plan I PR’d to a 16:55!!" – Irene

"Hey PJ, great results I’m getting!! My previous IST run time was a trash score of 13 minutes, 45 seconds and it literally jumped up to 12.30 in a matter of 3 weeks! Your program is amazing and as I become more consistent with it, I’m excited to see what I can accomplish each time I’m tested! Thank you again!" – Michelle

"My main metric was my 2-mile time which improved by over 2 minutes. One side effect of the program is that it made running suck less." – Nick

"I went from 24:05 (totally dead at the finish) PFT to a 22:20 using your program!– Josh

"I hate running, and I felt like I sucked at it. But I’ve been working the drills you sent as best as I can between school and an off-season job. I can already see such a huge difference!! More importantly, I can feel a huge difference. I already feel like I’m gonna be able to tackle next season with a ferocity I didn’t have last year. This program is absolutely life changing." – Amy
