Thoughts On “Size 10″ Forcible Entry

Forcible Entry is always a popular topic in the blogisphere as well as the kitchen table. While we consider ourselves forcible entry purists (i.e. using the right tool for the right job in the right manner), you can’t help but appreciate this how-to poster:

NOTE: This poster is for entertainment purposes ONLY. We never in our right-minds would advocate kicking a door instead of using tools.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S. If you too would like to be a forcible entry purist, you can call (843) 247-6044 or drop a line to info@safefirefigther.com for more information. CLASSES ARE BEING SCHEDULED AS I TYPE THIS.

 

Thanks and be safe.

Fun workout. Tried to get crew involved, might take a little work. But fun none the less! I went for 40 minutes ....farmers carry 50lb dumb bells, ladder carry around station, step ups on a box (20), deadlifts (135 @ 15) shoulder press (45lbs 15) squats (20) fast walk around station.
