Reaction time, speed, strength and overall tactical athleticism can either save or lose lives. Thus, sustaining a high degree of tactical athleticism is essential. This dynamic session will provide attendees with science-based, results-focused, career-lengthening exercise solutions and muscle recovery solutions for SWAT team members. Specifically, we will discuss how to optimize body mechanics to heighten tactical athleticism while reducing the risk of musculoskeletal pain and injury. Optimizing the body's rest and recovery system will also be covered. Attendees will be provided with demonstrations of practical, science-based exercises to optimize body mechanics for increased reaction time, speed, strength and overall fitness. All fitness ability levels are welcomed to participate. Modifications to lower and raise exercise intensity will be provided so that attendees can choose their preference per exercise. Practical, affordable best practices will help attendees enjoy a healthy, energized career with a comfortable, long retirement afterwards. Attendees will leave with an action plan that they can implement personally and with their team.
