Throw your ear buds in and turn it up as we talk about the parallel that fitness has with firing weapons, establishing a base to progress and prevent injury, and of course John's detailed dry firing sessions.

Show Notes

Questions from the listeners:

"How would you break up strength training and endurance training, if you only have an Hr a day to train? Would you do both at the same time or cycle strength training then move onto endurance training?"

"I do CFFB with my squad a few days a week (usually tues/thur or m/w/f) depending on the week. is it still useful to follow the program split up on the weeks...especially our tues/thur week in the gym...whats an optimal programming if we cant follow strict.  im a reformed Power lifter and follow daily..just looking to get the most bang for the buck with my squad."

    Great show! I would like to see you guys get Matt Wenning on the show, he’s done a lot of work with training tactical athletes, and even has a book out about it. He also spent time at Westside Barbell and is a top level competitive power lifter, I think listening to him and John discuss strength training and their programs and especially how they relate to tactical athletes would make for a great show.
