FAQs

We get it, this is probably unlike any program you’ve seen before.
So we want to answer all the questions you may have.

Why Knees Over Toes?

...the majority of the world has been scared away from strengthening this quality in exercise, because a 1978 Duke University study determined that there is more pressure on your knees when they go over your toes. NO DUH!

The result = knee surgeries and knee replacements going up 10X per capita since then, and now determined to be at epidemic levels, with 790,000 knee replacements last year...

What are the 10 ATG Principles?

1. Build From The Ground Up. Ankles to knees, knees to hips, hips to shoulders… building in this order makes the most bulletproof body according to gravity, yet no previous system has ever actually programmed its volume accordingly. How do you find out your true athleticism and bulletproofing potential if you build out of balance from your natural design?

The more we build from the top down, the more pain and injuries we accumulate and the more gravity-bound we become. The more we build from the ground up, the more we free ourselves of pains and injuries, the more athletic we get, and the longer we live with a high quality of life. Let’s look at the first two steps of Knee Ability Zero...

What programs do you offer?

Here is what Ben has to say about his programs:

At ATG we don’t address conditions. Conditions have their place but we believe the human body was designed correctly, and our role in the system is helping you travel a route of improving your pain-free ABILITIES.

While we are known for knees, we are actually a full body fitness system.

Zero, Dense, and Standards follow the same schedule:

M-W-F Lower

Tues-Thurs Upper and Mobility

You can learn the entire system on the site from Day 1, and we use an app to coach your form and answer your questions under 24 hours, 7 days a week.


The route from Knee Ability Zero to Dense Strength to Standards is entirely SCALABLE so that everyone can do every movement, regardless of your current ability!

Watch this video to give you more understanding: WHY Knee Ability Zero to Dense Strength to Standards - YouTube

Best results have been seen by doing 12 weeks of each program in exact sequence from Zero to Dense to Standards, and each program does address your full body and mobility - not just your knees. In fact, many other parts of your body relate TO your knees and are strategically addressed and progressed as you go through.

Knee Ability Zero is the only “optional” step. Yes, I do 12 weeks of bodyweight-only training myself each year, but I understand if someone is in a sport requiring extreme muscle mass and strength and simply does not want to do the bodyweight phase.

Above all, my purpose is to guide YOU to YOUR goals, and you can absolutely progress at your own pace.

NEW PROGRAM - ATG ESSENTIALS

Ben recently released a program called ATG Essentials. He says this about it:

Knee Ability Zero, Dense Strength, and Standards are strategic programs. They capture everything I did to bulletproof my body over the last 10 years. I will continue polishing these programs as long as I live.

But I think we can make a separate, non-conflicting program, which makes ATG the SIMPLEST it’s ever been to apply:

ATG Essentials

ATG Essentials is my simplest program ever: Sled (or Deadmill) followed by 2 exercises to correct modern human deficiencies. Every single movement scales to any level.

The schedule is:

Monday/Thursday: Lower Body
Tuesday/Friday: Upper Body
Wednesday/Saturday: Flexibility

There are 12 sessions, so every workout is different for 2 weeks.

With gyms opening back up, this program makes it a heck of a lot easier to master perfect form, since I’m only asking to see two exercises for perfect form coaching.

The volume actually scales from as little as 3 sets per exercise (what my mom does) to as much as 10 sets per exercise (what I do), which was the most successful programming style of Charles Poliquin, who trained the most gold medalists in Olympic history.

We all have man-made issues… but we CAN correct them!

Yours in Solutions,
Ben

What equipment is needed for the programs?

For the first program, Knee Ability Zero, no equipment is needed. Body weight only.  And you may do the exercises in your home or any other location.As you progress, you will need some equipment.  Here is Ben's article showing what equipment is needed with each program, and where to get it: Equipment by Program! Overview | by Kneesovertoesguy


If you do not have a piece of equipment available, the ATG Coaches are very resourceful and can give you alternative equipment ideas.

What is the length of each ATG workout session? Can I do ATG while on another athletic program?

Ben understands that many members will have their own athletic programs that they are doing, such as bodybuilding, or specific athletic coaching for basketball, baseball, soccer etc., with their team trainers.

He has this to say about combining your program with the ATG program:"Fortunately my sessions range from 20-30 minutes and will hit the missing links to get you even more gains out of your existing training!"


Knee Ability Zero is 3 sessions per week (M, W, F) with optional upper body, cardio, and flexibility on off days.  The days you do the 3 sessions can be changed by you to fit your schedule.

Dense Strength is 5 days per week (M-F), but the sessions are short.  There also, you may modify which days you do the 5 sessions, to fit your personal training schedule.

Standards Program is 3 sessions per week (M, W, F) with optional Flexibility Standards workouts on off days.

How much does your program cost?

The program costs $49.50 per month.  It's a monthly recurring subscription service which you can cancel at ANY time.  We currently have a discount coupon which gives you 50% off the first month.  The coupon code is ATGHOLIDAY.  The coupon page comes after the payment information page.

What forms of payment do you take?

We accept credit/debit cards and PayPal.

Can I sign up for just one month?

Yes. You can sign up for one month and cancel, or you may find that you benefit so much from the training that you want to stay on for a number of months.

What is your cancellation policy?

You may cancel at any time. Regardless of when you cancel, you will still receive service for the entire month that you paid for.

Sign in to the members-only website, select "Account", "Billing Settings" and "Cancel".  A confirmation of the cancellation will then be emailed to you.

I have patellar tendinitis. Is this program a fit for me?

Ben is not a medical professional and may not give advice regarding medical conditions.  Ben specializes in Knee Ability.  The ATG methodology strengthens and restores the muscles, tendons, and ligaments from the ground up and bulletproofs the knees against the intense forces that they are subjected to in sports and in life.

We have countless members who have improved or eliminated tendinitis and other conditions as a result of doing the Knee Ability Zero Program.  Check out some of the success stories on the website.

Here is a video Ben likes to have anyone watch who has knee issues:


I recently had ACL reconstruction. At what point would it be safe to do this program?

Can you give me an idea of what your service consists of? Is it just a list of exercises?

The best answer to this question is to watch the Intro Video here.

There are 2 parts to our service:

(a) the ATG website which is the knowledge base and

(b) the TrueCoach app where we deliver the actual programs, workouts, and coaching

The programs are very clearly laid out and are delivered via the app.  All the exercises are shown on your calendar and you are guided through them daily by your Coach.  You do the exercises for the day, and you send in form videos to your Coach to review.  He will help you as needed.  You have regular back and forth communication with your Coach. Our team of coaches review over 16,000 videos from our members in 70 countries every week!

There are videos showing how you progress from the lowest level to the highest level. There are set ATG Standards that you work towards on each individual exercise, and there is an advanced level for those who have achieved the ATG Standards, as verified by an ATG Coach.

Once you sign up, you will receive an invitation to download the TrueCoach app so that the program of your choice can be assigned and you can get started on your workouts.

My daughter is 16. Can she do this program?

The age requirement for ATG Online Coaching is 18 years old.  To sign up a minor, please fill out this Parental Consent Form.  The minor may then create an account and use the programs.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

For example, 2006 chronic knee conditions have resolved on our route thus far.

While we are known for knees, we are actually a full body fitness system of:

Zero (bodyweight-only, 30 minute sessions)

Dense (gradual dominance of additional load, 30 minute sessions)

Standards (strength system of 20 measurable targets, 30 minute sessions)

However, the Dense Strength program is extremely precise and every single movement sets you up for even greater results in Standards. Even NFL players are finding new strength, speed, and vertical jump on Dense Strength... then new layers on Standards!

This video would be a perfect one to watch to understand why rebuilding and then creating new abilities “brick by brick” can lead to far greater transformation than trying to rush everything at once:

We work for you 24/7 to help you transform your body.

ATG Founder - Ben Patrick

I wake up (and WORK) 7 days a week with the same motivation: get people trained in the solutions which are not broadly known but which FACTUALLY can change your knee surgery odds from what the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons is predicting for you.

My own chronic knee problems started at age 9, and by 18 I had 3 surgical knee alterations and I had to quit basketball altogether. That’s when I decided to devote my life to figuring out how to bulletproof the knees, and I did just that, transforming from the fragile guy with a lifetime-best 19-inch vertical jump, to now having the knee advantage even when playing against elite NBA players, plus a 42-inch vertical, the only known and documented case of an adult going from sub-20 to over-40 inch vertical jump.

In 2.5 years I’ve taken 1 day off, and I don’t see that changing until 2030 when we find out if the expected increase of 790,000 to 3.5 million knee replacements per year has been prevented due to my own efforts and the growing web of ATG members now making booms in their own areas.

Ben Patrick

CEO

As the COO my purpose is simple: run the BUSINESS so Ben can focus on maximally helping people. If you’ve ever run your own business you can relate to how many unseen things actually go into it…

I, too, work 7 days a week but not on any coaching. My job is to bulletproof the BUSINESS and create a work environment where every single staff member loves their job. Ben and his team being able to give their all to helping ATG Fam… THAT is my job.

I also had knee cartilage damage of my own that I was told I would have to live with, and I actually helped Ben in creating some of his most important knee progressions. I completely handled my own symptoms, painlessly, and now that I’ve had a baby, I’m actually looking forward to getting in the best shape of my life.

I was a competitive figure skater for 10 years and I’ll be getting back on the ice soon. Just as Ben is doing his best dunks as he’s entering his 30s, I want to do my best jumps in my 30s! So, yes, I’m an ATG Fam, too! But my time is spent on everything Ben DOESN’T want to do, so he can put all his time into the training system.

Alissa Patrick

COO

Ben and I go back being best of friends since the age of 4. I personally have witnessed the incredible transformation of Ben going from barely being able to touch the net of a rim to doing dunks with ease. I have trained alongside Ben and many of the other ATG staff and watched the miracles come to life, including myself whose ability to play semi pro and entry level professional soccer was realized by having a bulletproof body into my late 20s and early 30s!

Day by day, win by win our mission is to restore people to doing what they love without pain. My job here at ATG as the CAO is to ensure the company runs smoothly and that all of our staff are extremely happy!

I truly believe we have the best programs on earth which restore quality of life and give people who once had given up due to body weaknesses a fighting chance to feel like they can do what they love again.

CAO

ATG Staff Member - Quentin Tomak

I was one of Ben’s first clients, before ATG was even created. I had weak and painful knees and an abysmal 17 inch vertical. I never thought I would be dunking all four plants and being able to do the ATG standards in my sleep.
I’ve trained with ATG since the beginning so I know where it came from to where it is now. There is no better service on the planet and I’m living proof that anyone can overcome knee pain and become more athletic!

ATG Staff Member - Marley Vargas

When I first arrived at ATG I was overweight, non athletic, and had no hope of achieving my dream of dunking! I literally couldn’t do one chin up and barely touched the net when trying to dunk! I had zero confidence in my appearance and abilities! After training with Ben and the ATG system I lost 20 pounds, dunked for the first time in my life, and my athleticism is at the highest it’s ever been! I’m finally comfortable in my own skin which is probably the best gift that I’ve achieved with this training! This has completely changed my life and so grateful for trying this system!

Marley Vargas

Head of Communications

My name is Marcel Betancourt and I am a tennis player from Puerto Rico. I discovered ATG, as a local gym, back in 2015 after my years of competing in college. I came to train with Ben being unathletic, plagued with Tennis Elbow and back pains, in hopes of a chance to pursue a professional career. Since then, I have become ATG's longest standing employee, helped contribute to the development of the ATG system, have resolved all previous physical issues and can finally play tennis completely pain-free, and continue to support Ben by becoming the Head of Progress for ATG.

Marcel Betancourt

Head of Progress and Troubleshooting

I started out as an ATG member who loved the product and the results. Now my passion is improving the technology so that more people can be reached with this world-class training system.

ATG Staff Member - Andrew Graus

In 2018, Ben invited me to film and create epic highlight videos for the weekly ATG Hoops Runs. And that’s exactly what I did. 2 years later, I’m working for ATG full time creating professional videos to help share Ben’s knowledge and provide valuable resources for our loyal ATG Fam! I enjoy using my editing skills to help ATG in any way that I can.
