Primal Stress - Revive, Survive, Thrive
20th February 2014 to 13th March 2014 - 1 x Cycle at Level 1 completed.
Used as a transitional phase from Tacfit26 Level 1 to Level 2.
Scott Sonnon’s Primal Stress program is a comprehensive bodyweight training program that will help you develop a high standard of fitness by burning stubborn fat, building functional muscle, injury-proofing your body, and improving your conditioning level using a variety of movement skills and training protocols that were specifically created to build resiliency and toughness while fostering a sense of strength and empowerment.....

I have personally not given this program the attention that it deserves. I purchased it upon launch back in 2012 and have followed one cycle at Level 1.
I regard this as one of the strongest programs within the Tacfit fleet. The manual is amazing and really explains the science and resulting theory behind Scott Sonnon’s Tacfit program design. I have read the manual about 5 times now and still get more from it each read.
The program is bodyweight only (with a pull up bar required for 4 of the exercises). The mobility drills are excellent and the compensation flows are well designed and easy to emulate because of Scott Sonnon’s instruction and coaching cues.
Although I have not worked through the entire program I know many of the movements from my Tacfit journey and would highly recommend this program. I believe it to be one of the best bodyweight programs in the market. Intelligent, result-producing, interesting and fun.
Level 1 for 1 cycle. I undertook this training between Tacfit26 Level 1 and 2 to give my body a reprieve from resisted equipment and explore the bodyweight side of Tacfit more. It was a great decision. My Tacfit26 work translated across very nicely.
