Firefighter Fitness: Tips for the Fire Service Warrior

Firefighting requires both physical and mental proficiency, and being in good shape can help save a firefighter’s life on the fireground. To encourage good fitness habits, Fire Engineering is partnering with Chris Brennan of Fire Service Warrior (http://www.fireservicewarrior.com) to bring you monthly fitness bulletins that you can easily print out and post in the fire station.

Download this month’s first installment as a PDF HERE.

This month’s bulletin deals with the benefits of warming up and goes through the fundamentals about performing a bodyweight squat, among other exercises.
