Conditioning - Phase 3


Gurkha is the final phase of Defiance and focuses on peaking your work capacity for a series of assessments taken at the end. This is where the rubber meets the road and the training gets real.

Hybrid Program

This program includes both Strength and Conditioning elements to make you not only strong, but fast.

Who it’s for:

Gurkha is for those who have completed Voi Chien and Damri.


What it does:

Gurkha sharpens the steel that was forged in the first 2 phases of the Defiance Cycle. Here you will peak your conditioning to new levels.


What it’s like:

Like the transition from Voi Chien to Damri, moving onto Gurkha you’ll see an increase in the intensity as efforts get even shorter. Expect lots of variety in regards to types of work capacity training and a decrease in strength work.


How long it is:

3 weeks of training with 5 training sessions per week for a total of 15 training sessions.
