Strength Training and Functional Fitness
Officer health and injuries should be a concern for all law enforcement officers and departments. Strength training not only helps muscles but also bones, joints, and tendons. In this episode, Chief John Bouthillette, a lead instructor with the VALOR Program, has a conversation with Lieutenant Brandon Post of the Provo, Utah, Police Department to discuss how strength training can reduce the risk of injury, increase balance and flexibility, increase overall health, and allow you to change or sculpt your body shape. They also discuss starting a home gym, “functional fitness,” and other strength-training programs.
