Hello everyone, I would like to apologize in advance if the title of this thread is a little misleading. Allow me to explain.
I have recently read the 2 v 1 Road Rage thread in which members such as idaho and other ex LEO's described life or death situations where they were fighting with a cracked up criminal.
If you were to take an LEO with formal training/weight lifting experience and have him do very high reps on the trap bar with solid weight on a consistent basis, would that increase his chances of surviving in a "balls to the wall" combat scenario which lasts for about 1 and a half minutes? I specify that time because that is the time that idaho had to square off with a criminal who was on PCP or some such.
Say, doing 45-50 reps with the trap bar using 225-250 lbs. Would this increase VO2 max, lactate threshold, pain tolerance, or otherwise have some sort of useful carryover to a life or death situation in which the individual in question had to exert himself to the extreme for over a minute, with his life being on the line?
I would very much appreciate any and all responses from LEO's who have experimented with or at least tried high rep compound lifts and who also have been in life and death fights with criminals. Thank you very much in advance, gentlemen.
