How flexibility and strength exercises improve physical fitness
Part 2 of a six-part series offering practical strategies for LEOs to improve their health
In this special Policing Matters Roll Call series on officer health and well-being, host Jim Dudley speaks with Dr. David Black, founder of Cordico, and Mandy Nice, Cordico Strategic Wellness Director, about practical strategies for officers to improve their health.
In this episode, Mandy Nice discusses how officers can improve their strength and flexibility.
"Fitness can determine your energy and power, whether you are on duty during an altercation or off duty playing with your kids."
The best way to start is with flexibility training such as simple stretches for your shoulders, legs and back, followed by stability training like a plank hold or a wall sit, which both increase your range of motion.
