You don’t have to be in a tactical career field (i.e. military, law enforcement, firefighter, etc.) to know that their day-to-day demands are far different than most other career options. In my time as a Combat Arms Instructor in the Air Force, I had the chance to train and teach many other military police, firefighters, and special operations men and women. In addition to tactical weapons training, I was a Physical Training Leader for my squadron of around 200 people. To make sure that our squadron was always as mission ready as possible for any short-notice deployments, I would focus on 5 key components to their tactical training regimen; movement prep, strength and power, anaerobic and aerobic capacities, mobility, and nutrition.
