Workouts and Tunnel Vision

So, I was on the treadmill today, thinking about that extra 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile, mile that we all try to push for, getting that endurance level up.  I'm no workout guru, but with G8/NATO just ahead, it's past time to make sure we are doing all we can to prepare ourselves.

There is a New Running Shoe in Town: Women’s UA Charge RC Running Shoe

I admit it; I had a prejudice - a prejudice against running shoes. I only wore Nike. I had previously tried all other brands: Adidas, New Balance, Saucony - you name it, I had owned it at one point.

Tactical Medicine

QUESTION: How many WTA members on here carry any medical equipment on their duty belt or body armor, such as an IFAK (individual first aid kit), or even just a tourniquet when out in the field?

Hello WTA members,

As a board certified physician in Emergency Medicine with a growing interest in Tactical Medicine, I would like to get an idea of how many of you can initiate self care in the field if needed?

I recently completed a two week course in tactical medicine given by…

My wife was one of the first 12  females in patrol (as a test program) beginning in 1972. Their work opened the doors to female law enforcement officers throughout the…

Question ref Training

Recently at work I picked up a tactical magazine (forgot name forgive me) where there was an article on WTA. In one picture Karen and someone else are in a laying down position with their backs about 4 inches off the floor weapons drawn as you would shoot if someone knocked u down. I asked one of my range guys how come we never practiced that , response was I dont know why , but we should.

There are no prerequisites for the rifle classes, you can take whichever ones you'd like, without having to take the one before if you so choose.  FYI.

Deb Robinson: Woman Marine, Wrestling Coach, Investigator, Mother, Pioneer.

As much as I love the WTA for allowing me to shoot regularly, bust down doors and occasionally blow things up; I love it most because of the people I get to meet. One woman in particular really stands out: Deb Robinson. I had the pleasure of meeting Deb in November 2010 at 5.11’s women’s product development…

WOD will resume soon.

Things got a little hectic in my corner of the universe with holidays and Shot Show coming up.  I have lesson plans and handouts to get together for the upcoming classes, but should be resuming WODs in a couple of weeks, once I get a bit caught up.  In anticipation of the National Patrol Rifle Championship in June, I'll be mixing in some rifle WODs.  In the meantime, keep at the old WODs and make sure you revisit the ones that you need the most work at.  Remember, you have to be as good as…
