    Lightbulb gear training and cardio workout ideas

    I do a lot of cardio workouts well its more like a circuit training but it works. Everything i do is in my gear, im looking for some new ideas other than what i do now. Right now i pull a sled with a rubber bottom on it with 50 lbs. in it back and fourth our parking lot at the station walk forward 8 times and backwards twice with pushups in between each set. the two sprints at the end. I also run up and down our training tower 12 times with 15 sledge hammer swings between sets. theres a couple more but you get the idea. If anyone has any sugestions for some new ones let me know I would appreciate it.

    I love your mentality and approach to training. You might be interested in my STS article on Firehouse.Com. Here's the link.

    I'm also the Fire Rescue Advisor for the American Kettlebell Club. When used with proper technique (vital), kettlebell training is unsurpassed as a tool to prepare you for the job. Another upcoming article will describe in detail. Contact me directly if you're interested.

    So cottrellmcfd41, are you training for a Firefighters Combat Challenge. The things you are doing seem to mimic some of the evolutions in the challenge.
