Tactical athletes are a unique breed. You're expected to operate at an extraordinarily high level in stressful situations. Often in dangerous environments. As a SWAT operator, combat-arms soldier, or first responder, you have to be a Jack of All Trades. Let’s take that a step further. You have to achieve a degree of mastery. You have to be strong, have incredible levels of endurance, and be capable of sustained bursts of intense activity. All while tired, hungry, cold, or worse. You can’t train like a bodybuilder. You can't be sore for a week after 'leg' day, and unfortunately you can’t afford to specialise like a powerlifter. You have other abilities that need developing, things like your cardiovascular system, work capacity, and occupational skills. Anyone in the field knows it’s a constant juggling act trying to become (and stay) superhuman in multiple fitness domains. Maximal-strength is a foundational physical attribute for the tactical athlete. In English, this means it’s very important and contributes to the development of other physical qualities. If you’ve spent time in a combat arms military unit, you won't deny the benefits maximal-strength brings in terms of resiliency, load bearing capability, and injury prevention. Now it's pretty well established that the most efficient way to increase maximal-strength is through the use of barbells, due to the ease of incremental loading. However, the best barbell programs that currently exist aren’t designed with the tactical athlete in mind. Most of the good ones were developed by powerlifters and pure strength athletes. These programs are excellent, but seldom compatible with an operational lifestyle. On the flip side, most existing ‘tactical’ fitness programs give progressive barbell work lip-service only. You’ll get an occasional front squat or push-press mixed in with box jumps and burpees. But NO sustained or calculated progression model. The tactical community still tends to equate anything barbell-related with bodybuilding and non-functional training. TB fills that gap. It's a barbell strength program designed specifically for the tactical community using correct principles and best practices. TB will increase your maximal-strength and strength-endurance while taking into account the need to simultaneously train other fitness attributes. Tactical Barbell will provide you with a method of strength training designed for your unique arena. Periodization based, with a simple progression model that allows for a great degree of customization. You won’t find cables, balance boards or medicine balls here. What you'll get is a reliable, repeatable, cutting edge system designed to increase your strength dramatically, in a manner that leaves you time and energy to train all those other things you need to be good at. No fluff. No frills. If you’re in the tactical arena, you know talk is cheap. There's a built in strength testing component in this program. You will know whether or not your strength has increased, and by how much. Simple.

You have something of great value in your hands. A lifetime’s worth of training knowledge, drawn from the world’s most extreme arenas. Lessons learned and best practices from military operators, tactical law enforcement, martial artists, and others that rely on their physical abilities to survive and thrive in very harsh and unforgiving environments. Where there’s more at stake than winning a medal, or getting a bruised ego. Bottom line, with these people, the training has to work. By implementing the strategies in this book, you will cut your learning curve by decades. You’re going to be able to take your conditioning to the next level and beyond, while avoiding costly amateurish mistakes that lead to injury and burn out. The path has been laid out and handed to you on a silver platter. If you’re an older athlete, you’re going to reclaim that confidence you once had in your physical abilities. You may have forgotten what that feels like. It’s great having a 600lb squat and 400lb bench press. However, as a tactical athlete, if you can’t run, work, or operate for long periods of time in a multitude of energy demanding situations, you are ineffective. Your big bench press is useless, your big squat is useless. Tactical Barbell proposes you work towards being a different kind of athlete. The kind that is not only extremely strong, but also highly conditioned. If you look carefully, you’ll see these people all around you. That guy on your Emergency Response Team with the 350lb bench press and a sub 9 minute 1.5 mile run. The old Marine Sergeant that can run 6 miles in under 40 minutes, deadlifts over 600lbs and does 30 dead-hang pull-ups. So how do you get there? It's not what you think. Popular 'bootcamp' style approaches that throw a lot of push-ups and running at you in a haphazard fashion don't work. Sure, you'll break a sweat and release some endorphins. You might even lose a pound or two. But take a good hard look at your progress. For all your effort, are you REALLY that far ahead? To make real progress, you have to look to the approaches used by the pros. Train each attribute you're trying to improve in a progressive manner, using the most effective tools for that particular fitness domain. In TB2, you'll find the structured, three pronged approach to conditioning we take with all of our clients. It consists of Base Building, followed by a transition to a more specific continuation protocol. Periodic maintenance of lower-priority fitness domains complete our model. TBII is our manual for training tactical law enforcement candidates, soldiers and recreational athletes. It is the companion book to Tactical Barbell: Definitive Strength Training for the Operational Athlete. You will be hard pressed to find a more thorough, and effective conditioning program. If you are a results-oriented individual looking for concrete, actionable programming based on cutting edge research, TBII is for you.

In Tactical Barbell Presents: Ageless Athlete you will find extensive discussions of how to avoid the psychological pitfalls that lead many older trainees to sell themselves short, multiple new strength templates built on Operator and Zulu from Tactical Barbell, a method for planning recovery days/weeks, templates for incorporating accessory lifts and kettlebells, methods for testing strength progress, a standard base building template tailored for the ageless athlete, diet tips, and recommendations for long term persistence.
