How to prepare for NJ police academy physical exam!. In the following lines, I will share 3 of the most important factors to be successful for the New Jersey law enforcement fitness exam . Not surprising NJ Law Enforcement fitness requirements, and NJ State police fitness standards to pass the physical exam, has gotten harder in the past years. I have placed dozens of aspiring officers at different academies. Training for the NJ Law Enforcement fitness exam, requires great preparation for testing. As well as for the NJ State police fitness requirements. The metrics of the tests and each obstacle is similar but not entirely the same. My knowledge in nutrition combined with training, has been catalyst to help trainees to get faster, more agile and leaner. I have created a program that matches the NJ State police fitness drills. “Tornado Fit For Duty” is a driving force. That can help any candidate to pass the exam, and those willing to become fit for the NJ Police academy fitness test.
Law Enforcement Fitness, A Journey Not A Destination
The amount of police officers, and law enforcement personnel in New Jersey, furloughing their units due to health issues, or physical impediments has sky rocked in New Jersey, according to ABC news. Therefore, On my program (Tornado Fit For Duty) I decided to make this a journey for every member of my class, rather than just a destination. Thus, I am confident that with the adherence of our nutrition system, will imbue, every participant to take control of their health better and linger their new healthy habits for years to come, long after they have past their test!. Below you will find 4 main elements to focus for the NJ Law Enforcement fitness test. Fitness for law enforcement is a journey not a destination, as a result, my training is skewed towards two ends of the information spectrum. At one end, the nutrition aspect. And, then the strength coach and trainer, who has to evaluate every aspect of the training, as well as prescribing the proper drills for each phase of the test.
The FOUR Most Important Elements OF Training You Can’t Take For Granted:
1-The basic principles of sports mechanics. Your body and the way it fights gravity. Balance and power=explosiveness. There can not be power without balance and vice-versa. Thus, NJ Police physical test training is designed with compound uncomfortable positions, and movement. So you can swallow the rest, with no issues. These movements will increase explosive power, while help you strengthen your core. Because your body’s center, understand unilateral movements better than bilaterally.
2-OFF weights training sessions. Machines can make you very slow, as well as dumbbells and bars. You must learn to deal and train with your own body weight. The fluidness of your body is key to make you FIT FOR YOUR PHYSICAL EXAM. So I encourage movements with explosive take offs and follow through motions. Or continuum speed process, after each drill. I have been very successful, getting my trainees ready for the test by storing muscle memory, that allows them to continue from one section to the next with no problems, getting cramps, injured or what’s worst, exhaustion after each segment of the test.
3-Learn how to run!.
The major issues I see with trainees who don’t know how to run, is lack of coordination and connection with lower and upper body movements. Either their upper mobility in the shoulders and arms is to stalled or they have a lack of stridE and length CADENCE in the lower body.
Whatever the situation is, my expertise in strength and conditioning for runners will have a positive impact on the student. Lastly hip mobility and extensibility, seems another problem that needs to be adjust and fix. Proper hip strengthening exercises must be prescribed, for the student, as well as flexibility drills since the hips are a main weapon for power in our bodies!. Hip training is the main component of any program that aims in helping the runner, whether is short or long distance.
4-Pool Training Concepts.
Water friction is king, when it comes to develop power and flexibility. Our pool training will emphasis drill wherewith the body will be training against water currents, and pushing their physics in ways can never be pushed at a field, weight room or cardio equipment.
