This handout focuses on who is the Tactical Athlete. The tactical athlete is anyone who engages in high-risk/high demand operations. These operators/athletes require high levels of muscular strength, muscular endurance, speed, power, agility, balance, joint mobility, muscle flexibility and mental toughness. They need to have a superior energy system development and must be able to operate in an anaerobic environment for extended periods of time to handle the rigors of these high intensity environments. The tactical athlete needs to have an increased level of situational awareness as well as the ability to adapt quickly to an ever changing environment. 
The main tool to prepare these operators/athletes is the Bulgarian Bag. Topics include, reinforcing operational skill sets, reducing the possibility of injuries, usability and sustained fitness, functional movement patterns, forces in the environment and more. Check in out and let me know what you think!
