For the Final Push of my TACFIT Field Instructor Certification preparations, I decided to take a page out of CST Head Coach, Shane Heins’ playbook and run myself through the TACFIT 6-A-Day protocol.
Completing the 6-A-Day means performing TACFIT Alpha through Foxtrot in a single day. This serves as a means to be more prepared than the challenges I’ll be facing at the actual certification seminar.
This protocol is not a required means of preparation and should not be undertaken by anyone who hasn’t completed a Hard Responsible Push.
Outside of building a base with the HRP, the second key to completing this type of protocol safely, and without feeling like you’ve just been hit by a mack truck the next day, is to pay high mind to your intuitive training. Form must be locked in on every repetition. Discomfort must be almost non-existent. Only then can you turn up the juice on your effort.
One other thing to keep in mind is that it’s better to finish the protocol at a lower tactical level than to try and beast the session by completing everything at alpha level, despite looking like a hot mess doing so.
Push yourself to your edge, for sure, but check the ego at the door and be humble enough to know when you need to drop down a sophistication so that you can complete the mission and return home safely.
Third and final bit of advice for tackling the 6-A-Day is to not skimp on your Intu-Flow and Prasara. Both between programs and the next day. Give them their due diligence and they’ll reward you with a stronger, more efficient day of training, as well as the ability to roll out of bed the next day.
