After years of training one-on-one with hundreds of firefighters, and thousands more via group sessions and the internet, I can say with utmost confidence that training for only strength or only endurance works in very few scenarios.
Combining the two into strength-endurance training is the illusive approach most have missed. Pure strength and pure endurance have their place, and a touch of each can dramatically enhance an otherwise pure strength-endurance regimen, but it should rarely be the meat of any firefighter's program.
My new system (Sequenced Timed Sets or STS Method) addresses the issue directly. I invite you to check out my latest Firehouse.Com article in the Health and Fitness section.
Stay safe out there!
