FIRST ALARM Program Compliance Results In Significant Performance Improvements for Team FST!
I have been a fitness enthusiast for most of my life. I had a “go big or go home” approach to physical training for nearly 20 years. Well, that philosophy was great in my teens and twenties, but at age 40 I am left with the damage caused by this short sighted approach. I have had numerous surgeries and I was diagnosed with arthritis in my hips at age 35. The battle to regain lost mobility and reduce chronic pain is fought daily. If I could go back in time and give one piece of advice to my younger self it would be this: “Recovery is the most important component of your physical training program.”
The 4-day wave is a physical training schedule created by Scott Sonnon to maximize performance and recovery through varied training intensity. This method of cycling intensity is the foundation of most CST and TACFIT programs, and can be incorporated into any physical training routine.
The 4 day cycle looks like this:
We have provided a comprehensive workout that follows the “4-day wave” in our members area. If you are a member, you have full access now. If you haven’t registered yet, you can do so here for full access. This sample program will help you get a feel for the 4-day wave found in the TACFIT Fire Fighter: First Alarm program.
Have you completed all 23 cycles of TACFIT Fire Fighter: First Alarm and you are looking for another great program designed for emergency responders? Maybe you are just looking to try something different. Scott Sonnon has finally released his Primal Stress: Revive, Survive and Thrive Program. Coach Sonnon has dedicated himself to improving the health and performance of firefighters, police officers, military personnel and other emergency responders that tend to sacrifice their own health and well being in the effort to serve others. He is making the program available at a discount price over the next few days.
We met Rose last year when we were asked to host our first TACFIT Fire Fighter Seminar in Oregon. She has had the opportunity to complete “First Alarm” and has had some great results. Her commitment to firefighter fitness is an inspiration to us and we think it will serve to inspire you as well. Here is her story:
