EVERY FIREFIGHTER NEEDS THIS FITNESS TRAIT…
As firefighters, we need to be physically ready for almost any event. We need to routinely carry loads of 50 to 100 pounds, climb stairs and ladders, swing heavy mallets and axes, drag heavy objects, hold, hoist and stabilize hose lines. We must also be able to recover quickly from these tasks and perform such activities for prolonged periods of time. Let us not forget that all these actions are routinely done in awkward positions and sometimes on unstable planes. How do you translate those demands in just one fitness trait? In this podcast, Aaron Zamzow explains the research about firefighter fitness and gives a great answer to this question.
