I get a lot of requests for example workouts from the various Fire Rescue Fitness Programs.  This is one of the workouts you will find in the our FRF workout programs.

This is a great Firefighter Body weight workout that doesn't require a lot of equipment and is very efficient (like you need to be on a fire/rescue scene).   Give this a try!


You must perform the active warm-up first.  This warm-up will increase your core temperature, improve range of motion and get you ready for the workout.  (Click here for a quick overview of the warm-up exercises).

 

Perform 2 circuits of the following 5 exercises:
1.  Chops (5-10 reps)
2.  Knee Hugs (5-10 reps each)
3.  Spidermans (5-10 reps each)
4.  Knees side to side (5-10 reps each)
5.  Quadraped Rotations (5-10 reps each)

Then progress to the workout.... (scroll down).

Here is a recap of the workout (you can change the exercises based on your available equipment).  Remember to always start with and do not skip the active warm-up (see above).
