XPRT Training with Scott Sonnon: Pistol Pushup

As a 5.11 fan, you know how important it is to Always Be Ready. But you can’t be ready if you’re riddled with aches and pains and repeatedly injured and ill, especially by the very activity meant to help you become injury-resistant and pain-free: your exercise.

Pain competes for your performance. If you’re training in a way that causes pain and injury, you’re not helping your readiness to perform. Even if you’re “stronger” – if you’re unable to move well, with pain and injuries, you’re less ready to perform than before you started that exercise program.

We invited “Coach” Scott B. Sonnon to join Team 5.11 as our Tactical Fitness Ambassador not merely because he was named one of the top 25 trainers in the world by Men’s Fitness Magazine, and has coached multiple national teams to victory. We did so because he’s answering the questions 5.11 customers and staffers are actually asking. Anyone can tell you how to push hard. Pushing hard isn’t an unknown. Pushing hard without injury – pushing well – training hard and smart is what our customers demand, and what Coach is providing. Check out the latest XPRT series video for the full scoop on fitness from Coach Sonnon.

TACFIT has been vetted by federal agencies to prevent training-related injuries, has been shown to reduce occupational-injuries, to strengthen job-related skill platforms, and most importantly was designed to train you to rapidly handle acute situational stress, since it can’t be eliminated. This psychological piece, even earned TACFIT the title of the “World’s Smartest Workout” by Men’s Health Magazine.

Stress is the number one killer of law enforcement, military and fire/EMTs, with a national average lifespan of only 54-59! TACFIT teaches you how to save your life, and then it teaches you how to change it: to prevent training related injuries, to prevent lost days from work by reducing the pain and injury suffered on the job, to strengthen your physical platforms to improve job performance and to help you quickly recover from high stress so you regain and maintain the high quality of life you deserve. As can be seen in the video, with several different steps to each exercise, TACFIT allows you to scale the exercise to your current recovery level so that you can workout without injury.

For this reason, TACFIT has already been officially adopted by federal law enforcement agencies, has been POST Certified in several States, and is currently registering for additional States. Check out the upcoming issue of Recoil Magazine which expands these and other techniques in TACFIT!

I'm a great fan of the TACFIT programs.I like this exercise very much! It improves my regular push ups even more. I can't wait to share this exercise in my classes. Once again thanks coach Sonnon.
