I came across this group of guys that run the teamspearhead.com site, and are holding a 12 week training program they called PATHFINDER.

Their on the fourth iteration of the class, and it is used as training for GORUCK events. Specifically Heavy and Selection.


This program kicked off last week and on Monday and Tuesday I crushed my workouts.


40 Burpees
50 Ruck Upright Rows
75 Deep Squats with ruck
75 Selection Standard Push-ups
100 Jumping Jacks
75 Zircher Squats with ruck (bear hug the ruck)
60 Ruck Overhead Presses
60 Walking Lunges (30 each leg)


6.9 mile ruck w/35# in my ruck and a 25# KB coupon.
Time was 2:04:43

Also picked up a coupon along the way (limb) and swung back around after my ruck for the chunk of the stump.


Since Tuesday I’ve been slacking pretty hard and haven’t worked out at all…

So tonight I am going to shot for Selection Standards and possibly try to get out for an evening ruck (tired and hungry, might as well as ruck it).

Selection Standards:

  • 2 Minutes: Minimum 55 Push-Ups (Proper Form)
  • 2 Minutes: Minimum 65 Sit-Ups (Proper Form)
  • 5 Mile Run in 40 Minutes or less

(Note*) I tried posting this once before but some how lost it and now have to retype the whole thing,… Damn you WordPress, damn you!
