Hey monkiis,

I was writing out a training program for myself and made up a really useful template on the spot that I wanted to share with the monkii family. Basically, I started with three high-level categories: Goals, Principles, and 2021 Events and then reverse-engineered a path to how I would train in congruence with those three categories. My BIG 3 plans for 2021 are 1) a mountain trail run somewhere between 30 and 50 miles, 2) Climbing a Big Wall in Yosemite National Park, and 3) Backcountry Bow Hunting in September.

What is so fun above setting these huge goals is that you end up doing a bunch of other fun adventures and challenges in order to help 'train' for the big boys. I wrote out a 5-week training block that is mainly focused on General Physical Preparedness, but that also includes some targeted training for the One-Arm Pullup and One-Arm Pushup. I'll do some evaluation and a few fitness tests at the end and then set off on a new journey in 5-weeks.

I'd highly recommend giving this process a shot and please let me know how it goes.

As promised, check out the Wildman David Goggins Instagram.
