Seasonal Tactical Fitness Periodization (STFP)
What is Seasonal Tactical Fitness Periodization?
Full Article: A Training System Developed by Stew Smith CSCS
Throughout my life from high school athlete in multiple sports, to military fitness, college sports, special ops selection preparation, and then as active special ops member, I recognized the importance of seasonal training. Creating an off-season in sports was naturally built in with it's own periodization cycles (pre-season, in-season maintenance, post-season) no matter what sport or multiple sports you doing / preparing for. This was not the case for any tactical profession.
Learning the differences between the specifics Is the first part of this training education as many people do not realize the differences of each phase of training and train "out of phase" depending on their immediate and future goals.
Phase 1 - TO the training, (specifics to testing)
Phase 2 - THROUGH the training, (specifics to selection / training)
Phase 3 - Active Operator Maintenance / Stress Mitigation
