Weight Training for Police Officers – Workout Program for Tactical Units – Police Officer Exercise Program
In this talk, strength coach Mark Roozen explains the principles of weight training for police and tactical units, however it’s applicable to other training groups and group needs.
“As we set up our training programs, we want to work through all the different joint angles because police officers usually don’t operate in one plane of motion. We have to train in different planes of motion. Except for the actual activity, no strength-and-conditioning program has 100% carryover. In the weight room we want to make sure our training program will have some carryover. As we get more specific there will be more carry over for our jobs or the activities we’re doing when away from our jobs. At some point we have to train to the skill.” ~Mark Roozen
