Firefighter Workouts

You may want to be a male model, but would you like to have the endurance of a hero? Or at least look like a hero?

Firefighter Workouts are unique to other workouts because they are designed to train people to move rapidly while burdened by carrying 60-80 pounds of equipment. (Just imagine how heavy an oxygen tank and other gear is when walking up stairs - remember, in a fire situation, elevators do not function.)

That is where a firefighter workout comes in. The folks at Workouts4Men have compiled a list of all the firefighter workouts in book and DVD form, along with one piece of gear that is a must-have if you want a truly authentic firefighter routine. Hint: It is very heavy to ship.
