"Kirk is a beast! He absolutely knows how to physically prepare for an event. He and I spent a lot of time discussing metal preparation too as we both trained for our first HCLs. His training plan gives you the keys to both physical and mental preparation and is the most comprehensive plan I’ve seen. If you want a plan that gives you the full gamut of training, preparation, gear packing, etc. this is the plan you want."

- Lisa Stephenson (multi- HTL completionist)

This guide includes:

  • How to mentally prepare for the event and embracing the suck
  • Your first event? List of "noob" mistakes not to make! 
  • Strategies for before, during, and after the event to ensure success (what to eat, when to change socks, etc.)
  • Full gear breakdown: required vs. recommended, and how to set it up
  • The ONLY training gear required is a ruck, sandbag, and a pull up bar! 
  • Monthly, weekly, and daily challenges to push you out of your comfort zone!
  • A full, 3 month training plan with 30+ workouts, covering 150+ miles
  • Weekday sessions are typically ~30 minutes (3x a week) and weekend (1x) are ~1-3 hours. There are 4-5 milestone workouts/events that are ~4-6 hours.
  • Workouts are formatted as graphics for sharing so you can post your WODs to your friends and rucking partners!
  • Yoga to stay healthy
