And whatsoever you do, in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.

Col 3:17


 Phase Four: 4 Week Training Plan 


"The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge."

​Proverbs 8:15

 This Phase of the Protocol is designed to prepare you for the less traditional WOD’s located on The Samson Option WorkoutoftheDay’. You will decide how much work you want to do. The ‘Cap’ is a suggested time limit for the component so it doesn’t run on forever. (This is critical for those of us who are going to do it all and likely a few more even if it takes us forever.) 

The Reps and Rounds are also suggested; do what you can challenging yourself and having fun. The key word here is ‘fun’ albeit; too much fun might be a cue that you’re not working hard enough. In my opinion, the criteria for work is when you finish with your tongue hanging out and your towel, shirt, pants, and most of the ground around you wet. (You know what they say about Opinions?)
