Tactical Performance Concepts & Application

The importance of physical fitness is never greater than when lives are at stake. Specifically, professionals in law enforcement, fire/rescue, and the military need fitness and tactical athleticism to efficiently respond to calls and complete missions regardless of the obstacles, mixed terrain, interference, and dangerous environmental conditions involved. They also need the physical resilience to rise and do it all over again the next day, month, and year. So what does it take to develop and sustain that level of tactical athleticism? Find out with the Tactical Performance Concepts & Application Bundle, which will help you:

  • Use the wisdom of the past to create an even better future by learning about the history and recent evolution of tactical strength and conditioning coaching.
  • Learn valuable go-to tactical strength and conditioning programming strategies, including advanced programming methods and ways to leverage complexes to help improve tactical job performance.
  • Harness recovery strategies that help tactical professionals optimize physical resilience.
  • Protect tactical professionals from devastating job-related injuries.
  • Collect and connect data that optimizes tactical strength and conditioning program design and results.

Injury Prevention for Tactical Personnel – Compiling the Evidence and Lessons Learned

Musculoskeletal injuries are the primary source of disability in the United States military. With the integration of movement screens and the implementation of tactical strength and conditioning facilitators there can be success in reducing the amount of musculoskeletal injuries in the tactical populations.

Using Complexes to Help Improve Tactical Job Performance

Just as any athletic team can benefit from sport-specific training, tactical professionals can benefit from occupational task-specific training as well. Combining pushing, pulling, pressing, and total body movements into complexes may help mimic the demands and movements of job tasks that tactical personnel may encounter.

Advanced Programming Methods in the Transfer of Training for the Tactical Athlete

Cal Dietz, Head Olympic Strength and Conditioning Coach for the University of Minnesota, explains how training is a process that takes time. He shares his insight into the most applicable adaptation and the most effective applications for tactical performance at the 2019 NSCA Tactical Annual Training.

Compartmentalizing Physical Training: The Data is on the “Floor”

From the 2019 Tactical Annual Training, Rob Hartman reminds coaches that with all the technology out there, coaching the moment can still provide all the data you need. Hartman discusses how to use the data to understand the population, the individual, yourself, and coaching efforts.

Tracking Training Load and Its Implementation in Tactical Populations

Tactical populations often participate in demanding physical training and perform strenuous workplace tasks, increasing injury risk. Mitigating injury risk is vital for maintaining trained personnel and should be a focus for tactical populations. One such method, tracking training load, has not been studied in-depth in tactical populations, despite documented effectiveness in elite sport. Most injuries to tactical personnel are overuse in nature and therefore may be prevented by optimizing training load. Although the methods used in elite sport may not be directly transferrable to tactical environments, they may be used to inform injury mitigation strategies in tactical populations.
