TACFIT is a tactical fitness program based on the Circular Strength Training system. So, if you’re familiar with CST, you’ll recognize the ingenuity behind TACFIT Commando. I have used TACFIT Commando myself, and can vouch for its effectiveness. It’s a circuit training program that can be applied to a variety of training goals. It was created to fulfill the fitness demands of military, law enforcement, firefighting, and other agencies where fitness is a necessity. I also understand that there are different divisions of TACFIT, and this session is from the Commando division, which is bodyweight-only.
The training protocol for the following workout is…
Each minute, on the minute, for 20 minutes; finish 20 rounds in 20 minutes of:
* 6 Quad Hops to Flat Foot Squat
* 6 Knee Drop Spinal Rocks to Butterfly
* 6/6 Springing Tripods
* 6/6 Swinging Planks. *Note, I only did 3/3 in my video

One of the main reasons why Circular Strength Training and the TACFIT protocol resonates so well with me is because of the scalability built-into the entire system. Not only are the exercises scalable, which helps dramatically with learning, but the actual sessions are scalable, too.
Most fitness programs out there are 100% scalable, but it’s not built-into the curriculum. Coaches and trainee’s are required to scale their own programs because there is no official standard of what is beginner level versus advanced level, or anything in-between.
That’s really what makes TACFIT different. There is no guesswork involved. You follow the formula at the level you can manage, without having to figure out if you’re doing the training that is right for you.
Using TACFIT as-is, is the closest thing to an individualized program that you can get without having to play around with training variables, or hiring a coach to do it for you. It works very well for its intended purpose, right out of the box. If you’re looking for well-rounded functional fitness, then I strongly recommend the TACFIT program. You’ll be hearing a lot more about it on Physical Living after the New Year.
