Strength - Phase 1
Comanche focuses on strength and speed development. Expect a focus on sprinting and barbell work along with all the necessary supplemental work to build a very high level of fitness.
Perfect for those that are not new to training or have done a few of our programs already.
Full Gym Required
This program requires access to a full gym with barbells, dumbbells, plates, racks, and kettlebells.
This program includes both Strength and Conditioning elements to make you not only strong, but fast.
Who it’s for:
Comanche is for intermediate to advanced athletes who have already moved through our Beginner Package or have been following along with our Alpha training. We do not suggest this program for new people with limited training experience. This program is great for LEO due to the huge emphasis on sprinting.
What it does:
Comanche conditions and prepares the body for more advanced strength training protocols as seen in the later phases of the Raider cycle.
What it’s like:
Comanche has a heavy focus on barbell training at lighter loading and higher volumes. Along with the primary strength emphasis there is a huge sprinting component. Although it’s primary goal is to acclimate the body to strength training, Comanche includes aerobic capacity, core work, and work capacity elements making it a very comprehensive program.
How long it is:
6 weeks of training with 5 training sessions per week for a total of 30 training sessions.

Looking for a Hybrid?
I’ve been fortunate to speak with the Atomic Athlete Coaches for the past couple years and after pulling the trigger on Comanche, I couldn’t be happier.
If you’re looking for that “hybrid” programming, you’d be hard pressed to find the balance Comanche provides elsewhere.
Do yourself a favor and purchase the entire Raider package from the get go.
It’s systemic, dynamic and concise.
This was by far the best strength program I’ve done in a decade. I didn’t even do all the sessions so I could stay on track and ended hitting some great numbers, some that I thought I’d never hit again. Coach Smothermon nailed this one!
This program was part one of the Raider Cycle and I loved it. Honestly, I loved the entire package and the results that came with it. At 37 years old I assumed that my days of hitting PR’s were done, especially considering that I was a competitive powerlifter at one point. I ended up hitting multiple former PR’s and a new one for Bench Press. I also loved that fact that the conditioning in this program was mostly just sprinting (I’m not a strong runner!) If you want to get stronger THIS is the first step.
