How often do you find yourself having to lift or move in an awkward position while operating on the fire ground?
Flexibility is a critical component of your firefighter fitness program and one that allows you to perform in a safer and more effective manner when faced with less than perfect conditions. Yoga practice, stretching, mobility drills, are all examples that should be included into your firefighter training.
