TACFIT Programs Comparison- Intensity Versus Structural Foundation

***The above diagram serves as a guide to distinguish between the intensities and complexities of exercise across the TACFIT Suite of Products. It is intended to be used as a reference, actual experiences may vary.

A Brief Note From Field Instructor Daniel- “After 4 days of workshops under the masterful coaching guidance of Alberto Gallazzi I have re-done the entry chart I made for the various RMAX programs. I changed the horizontal axis form “complexity” to Structural Foundation. Increasing complexity is contingent on a strong foundation. What I have known, but not fully admitted (which is easy when you are training alone and not under a coach) is that training the basics of establishing good structure until you “get right” is insufficient. You need to do it until “you can’t get it wrong”. It is very hard to progress with greater complexity and greater resistance of the tools (kettlebells, clubbells, rings, etc). Ballistic movements with the body, and especially with tools, it is easy to cheat with momentum or your stronger compensations. This increases the risks of injury and also prevents full progress. It also prevents the full transfer of the movement skill to other occupational or sport skills. The weaker your foundational structure is, the better served you are by the programs to left of the vertical axis. To reap the full benefits of TACFIT 26, you should master 6º Flow, Flowfit, Clubbell 5×5, and Clubbell Athletics. I know for myself I will be revisiting those programs to get full hip recruitment and core activation. I have too many dormant spots.”
