    Specifically review your goals and weaknesses. What do you have problems with? What can you improve on? How much time do you have?

    For example, when I started doing extrication, I tried to "bulk up" - gain mass and power. In my case, I learned, it wasn't brute strength that was a problem, but muscular endurance. Picking up a 35-40lb tool was nothing...holding it for long periods was. So I retailored my routine with high reps and loweER (not low) weight - challenging my muscles to work harder, longer.

    I'm a personal trainer - if you need more advice, let me know ([email protected]). I'd be glad to help you with a program. Good luck!

    Most firefighters want to do all three things that BucksEngine 78 stated...gain stength, lose fat (muscle weighs more than fat!) and increase cardio endurance. Mike Stefano's The Firefighter's Workout Book is an excellent reference, so is Bill Phillip's Body for Life.

    Check out the "fitness" link of this site. Excellent stuff there. The FF Workout book is a good investment too.

    What are you looking to do? Bulk up? Lose weight? Gain cardio strength? Tone up? That really determines what kind of workout you want.
