I saw the thread on strength training for cops and thought about what I need to do to get in shape to be a firefighter.
A little background info: I’m a senior in highschool, I would like to pursue a career as a firefighter/medic. I played football and lifted according to the BFS program. My lifts at my peak strength were 235 bench, 365 squat, 325 dl. My #s aren’t that high now because I got sick then injured then a lazy pos. Lately, I completed Westside for Skinny Bastards and most recently TBT. Although alot of people hate on the BFS system, thats where I got my best results.
I was thinking I should be doing mostly compound lifts, core work, lower body and whatnot. But strength is only half the battle, what about cardio? Lately I have been running two miles twice a week in order to get a starting point for HIT or something.
I would deeply appreciate any suggestions or comments for strength/cardio you guys have. Thanks for your help.
