The PSE training methods have been invaluable to my ultra-running and adventure racing success. The low-volume, high intensity programming has made me an overall better athlete. For example, I can run 100 miles, be back at the gym the next day, and then PR my clean 4 days later; I remain competitive at most distances; and I haven’t really had any injuries in four years. I’ve done a lot of ultras at this point, and I typically finish in the top 5-10% at all distances. Coaching-wise, I’ve had a lot of athletes succeed in their first ultra and/or PR at various distances.

The strength and conditioning I did coupled with the cross training fundamentals gave me an overall strength that I did not have a year ago. I actually felt that I got stronger throughout the race. The high intensity endurance intervals trained my body to recover faster while increasing my speed. I feel that combining PSE Strength and Conditioning with PSE Intervals have made me more powerful, faster and less prone to injury than previous years.

PSE Programming has been remarkable. I have been using it with my Infantry squad and have had remarkable results. In a short period (3.5 months) we have been active with this programming it has not only taken my Soldiers, but myself to extraordinary gains. From guys not being able to finish a standard 35lbs, 12 mile, 3 hour ruck march to guys exceeding the 3 hour standard by almost 15 minutes. It is the fact I have not had a single injury during training which we know is far far far too common with Soldiers when training for our specific endurance event particular to our job. In turn my Soldiers had to be put down for 0 recovery time due to a injury. Which in turn paid off in more time for training. Short version: This shit works.
It’s been a long time goal of mine to do an Ironman and become a triathlete. Signing up was the easy part, yet deciding how to train for the Ironman became challenging. I knew I had two choices, follow the herd and put in the long miles every week, or go against what everybody was telling me and take that leap of faith you have to be willing to make when you commit to Power Speed Endurance. My gut told me Power Speed Endurance would make me a better runner and was my best shot at training for the Ironman and staying injury free. Fast forward to today, now I no longer run with hesitation wondering if the next step is going to sideline me again for weeks or months. It’s the best feeling in the world.

Without Power Speed Endurance, I am convinced the dream would still be just that, a dream and not the memory I hold in my heart. I took MacKenzie’s sound philosophy, applied it to a program that fit my life, my age, and my health and found success.

I recently completed Ironman 70.3 California, just 6 months after having my little girl. Training has been tough with a 3 year old little boy and newborn as I am also Coach, Personal Trainer, Spin Instructor and also run my own Training & Coaching business. Because of this, I felt my triathlon specific training of the program often had to be left out as the shorter more intense workouts were easy to fit into my busy schedule. I wouldn’t have been able to post a 1:44 half marathon if I hadn’t completed so much work on my core and development of a strong base to work from. This has been an area of particular weakness since having a second baby. Thanks once again; you’ve got me back to being a triathlete!

PSE will help you maintain an excellent level of fitness in all aspects. Walking around in full kit, or standard 12 mile in under 3 hours road marches should be relatively easy and pain free (provided you have conditioned and calloused feet). Even longer road marches at an easy pace would be good. PSE will also provide you with an excellent base for more specific training, like for a ruck based selection. I have been following PSE for over a year, mainly to prepare for races, but I also find myself among the top physical performers in my platoon.
Now almost a year later I am proud to report the results. We went from seeing 34% attrition in each class due to running related injury by week 3 to.. wait for it.. 0. We now lose an average of 1 soldier out of every three classes. We have had massive changes in body fat percentages, muscle gain, virtually 0 injury, invaluable knowledge imparted and new PSE and NSW athletes have forged significant accomplishments across all skills. Congrats and thanks from all of us for having built this program.
I have been following the PSE program consistently for nearly two years and it has transformed my fitness. As a busy Mom and CEO of two companies in my 40s, my training time is very limited. It is mandatory that my programming is efficient and intelligent with maximum training benefit. The PSE program has delivered and then some. Using this program, I have been able paddle the Molokai Outrigger World Championships, run some Spartan races, jump on my mountain bike and hit a long/steep ride, ski, run, go on a long backpack, and more without any additional or customized training. This is how I plan to train for the rest of my life.
