Super Soldier is an 8-week program with a strength phase followed by a hypertrophy phase with an emphasis on recovery (it’s the first chapter) and options for conditioning.


The subsequent 4 weeks, the hypertrophy phase, is done using AVT method, which he calls Accumulative Volume Training. One of the ways it is implemented is like so: do 1 set of 6 reps (this is called 1st hop), throw on another 25-pound plate and do 6 reps without rest other than the time taken to load the bar (2nd hop), throw on another 25-pound plate and do 6 reps (3rd hop), repeat until failure at 6 reps or less and then take a 3-minute break. This is considered one round, and doing 2 rounds of this implementation is recommended for compound lifts.

He also recommends doing conditioning throughout this 8 weeks in his philosophy of being strong and being in shape, and suggests walking as a foundation for the first 4 weeks of the program.

Also included are supplementation and diet recommendations for people going through with this program.
