    Essential Reading

    It is common for the tactical athlete to have an entire strength and conditioning program consist of circuits using “events” as exercises. Events such as the yoke walk and tire flip should not be the majority of a tactical athlete’s workload for every training session. The need to be innovative or cutting-edge in design often leads programs away from strength and conditioning fundamentals.

      The author presented a very strong point of view. He also acknowledged that sticking to the basics can become boring. I find myself in agreement with the author, because when there is a proven method you can be sure of the results.
