As well as being THE concept in fitness and strength and conditioning, functional training is also probably the most poorly understood concept in fitness. Functional training is any exercise that improves your ability to perform tasks required in your day to day life, job or chosen sport - so that each movement included as part of your workout mimics a range of motion or engages muscles that are necessary to impact on performance - whether it be on the rugby pitch or simply the ability to lift small children out of car seats. Includes over 100 functional exercises and detailed pictures and descriptions of all the techniques show you clearly how to apply them into your training programme.

This text discusses the organization, manning, and training of a highly disciplined Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team, outlines necessary equipment and weapons, and illustrates tactical procedures for hostage-taking and barricaded suspect incidents. A SWAT team should be organized only if the need and resources exist. Smaller departments can organize as-needed teams while larger departments may prefer full-time teams. Team members should include a commander, team leader, scout, backup, marksman, spotter, gasman, and paramedics. Because team members must be mentally stable, able to work well in teams, and in good physical shape, the guide advises screening applicants on the basis of years of duty, personality test scores, physical condition, and past performance. Background investigations should be conducted for applicants who pass these tests. Equipment needs, for individual members and the team as a whole, include rifles and sidearms, gas masks, grenades, knives, radios, lights, battering rams, and public address systems, as well as special uniforms and headgear. The team's logistical superiority depends on regular testing of equipment and training in its use. Training exercises should cover team movement, firearms and use of chemical agents, freeway and street procedures, rappelling (rope climbing/descending), team driving, and hostage-incident and barricade simulations. A suggested 1-week training program is presented.
