Moving one millisecond second too slow. Running out of breath one millisecond too fast. Turning toward the suspect one millisecond too late. It only takes one devastating millisecond for an officer’s noble, selfless, courageous life to be taken. Physical health and fitness can make a powerful difference in that millisecond, and that is why it’s so important to prioritize training. It’s not easy, but using practical, evidence-proven strategies will pave the way for your success.
