It is well known that there is an obesity epidemic in America. According to the National Institute of Health, more than one-third of adults are obese. Its a serious issue that plagues the law enforcement profession due to long hours, working variable shifts and high stress.

.

One study by the FBI estimated that more than 80 percent of American cops are obese. This threat to officer safety requires action. Getting started is tough  making a lifestyle change requires a shift in mindset  but it is not a fight police officers are destined to lose. There are some easy steps that every cop can take to improve their physical health  from nutrition to activity.  It starts by self-reflection, acceptance and dedication to making lifestyle changes that will benefit the officers overall health.  Here are four fitness habits that all police officers must adopt to improve overall health and fitness. Before beginning any new workout program, I highly encourage you to get a physical exam from a medical doctor.

.

1. ALTERNATE WORKOUTS

.

It is imperative that cops work out regularly each week, especially given the demands of the job. While there are several types of workouts, the fundamental rule is that fitness should include a balance of two types of workouts: cardio and resistance. The workouts must vary because repetitive training often results in overuse injuries and possible boredom. Beginners, or individuals who have not worked out in the last 30 days, should start slow to build up physical endurance. Intermediate and advanced fitness enthusiasts need to also add variety in their workouts to encourage new muscle growth, prevent overuse injuries and prevent burnout.
