The new Combat Strength Training blog just went hot!

Our mission with this blog is to give you an inside perspective to the Combat Strength Training methodology and give you more tools to execute performance-based training to the best of your capability level. The blog will be the primary channel from which we expand CST and will augment the video library and Chassis Guides (template workout programs). As such, we will be releasing new posts several times per month.

Think of the blog as a way that we will “round out” the CST methodology. We’ll do this by delivering premium content to you from world-class contributors. If you haven't read the Cadre page yet, STOP reading this and go read that!

We’ve put together an extraordinary cadre of contributors that is poised to deliver truly unique information. You will not find this level of information from any other training approach. Our cadre members include professional sports psychologists, former members of Tier 1 Special Mission Units from the US Military, and strength and conditioning coaches that train tactical, collegiate, and professional athletes around the world.

Below is the route we're going to follow from a high-level vantage. Undoubtedly we will course correct over time, but this is the general map.

Philosophy: Why the chassis analogy when referring to the body as the "Combat Chassis?" Rationale for performance-based training vs. outcome-based training and why it's important for the combat athlete. CST vs. Crossfit: How are they similar and different.

Programming: Through the membership zones we’ll be releasing introductory program templates (a.k.a. Chassis Guides) for each chassis type to on-ramp you into CST’s training methodology. We’ll be releasing detailed explainer posts for each of the specific Chassis Guides to thoroughly cover the philosophy behind the template to help you perform at your maximum capability.

Mental Training: Exploring how the body goes where the mind takes it. We’ll give you concrete tips and actionable steps to developing a mental training plan.

Prehab/ Injury Prevention: Proper warm-ups and cool downs, posture, joint mobilizations, physical therapy, injury rehab, injury prevention, staying fit while injured.

Selection Preparation: Rucking, endurance aspects, mindset.

Nutrition: We will explore some of the best fact-based diet concepts and how they apply to tactical athletes. You’ll get the facts you need to shuttle the best fuel you can get into your Combat Chassis.

Application Case Studies: Examples to illustrate CST’s tactical application for various real-life scenarios.

We encourage constructive dialogue and questions and view your feedback as critical to the blog's success. Please comment often!

Enough talk, now go get some!

    Mac, I have been so looking forward to the expansion to this site after reading your book. Coupled with your TAPS Pistol video I, along with members of my team, have incorporated many of your drills (work out and weapon work) into our training regimen. I wish you all the luck in this new endeavor!

    i have a question. is it alright to mix and match some of the workouts. meaning if one day i want to do a workout from the pinto and the next lets say from the wrangler. I would switch workouts that are set for the same goal such as strength or speed/ quickness. do you think that this is something that would be OK and be help full.

    great site
