The tactical fitness exercise demonstration this week is the quad press.  This movement is a great way for firefighters to train ground engagement.  Firefighters often work low to the ground in high heat conditions.  The quad press helps develop strength low to the ground.  It also trains your body to absorb force.  Catching yourself after a fall forward for example.
