Pride Falls - Humility Lifts

Friday, September 19th, 2014

Pride is concerned with how many are achieved. Humility is concerned with how well they're performed. Received great coaching today from TACFIT Team Leader Dave Simeur. I was hoping to increase my number in my ring muscle up today, but my body prevented me, thankfully. In order to do even one ...

How do you stop excessive force?

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

I go home to debrief the results. They put on a gun, a badge and a bullseye. An armed felon fought his way through our neighborhood, but due to the actions of law enforcement, our children now play comfortably in our street. I review the results of our training, and ...

Your response to the amount of space my body inhabits is a reflection of you, not me.

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

A father posted on my page, “My wife’s daughter is really fat. Nobody gone love her till she gets off her lazy fat ass and stops eating.” The remark shocked me - as I had been obese as a child and had actually believed that my appearance determined my worth. There ...

If you’re going through Hell, keep going.

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Winston Churchill suggested that, "If you're going through Hell, keep going." But he didn't describe that breath will carry you through. Exhale, embrace the suck, smile if you can (it unsettles your opponents) and keep going. It'll get easier when it's over, but then tomorrow's challenge is coming. There's a ...

Pull down to press up

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

The challenge in the double push press can only be practiced in the single (unilateral): shoulder pack. In order to prevent shoulder tweaks and tears for those who have high-stress occupational work in the frontal plane (like many of the operators I train), traditional "active" shoulder are problematic. They need ...

The 1st Rule about the Alpha Male Club is…

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

 READ BEFORE YOU COMMENT! A 'guest' to my page posted a photo which I've modified to take out the implied pornography, and commented: "Been following you since 90s and I have to say Scotty the past 10 years you lost APEX PREDATOR appeal. wheres the Alpha Male of the 90s Was ...

What is a TACFIT Physique?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Note the physique. It is not like any other type of athlete. The closest would resemble a gymnast. Although it was originally intended to develop a fighter physique, the nature of high injuries in fighting the "fighting physique" is never truly realized. Look at the shoulder ...

Fail Better. Succeed Intelligently.

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

The exercise protocol "Each Minute on the Minute" lacks progression, as exercise isn't held to the same standard as sport science. You can be awarded a trainer certification (without understanding the fundamental principle of periodization.) This unfortunately leads to trainers administering random workouts to unwitting clients, with outcomes that can't ...

Reactivate before Dinner

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

This evening's WOD @ light intensity: a light session immediately before dinner reactivates sequences of muscles which have begun shutdown. We often wake up sore from a workout the day before because the muscles turned off but kept the fascia tight and shortened. By doing a light evening conditioning session, ...
