In this episode we have a conversation with Casey Glass, who has been a strength and conditioning coach at an active duty special operations unit for the past eight years. Alongside helping the operators she works with to excel in their training workups and deployments, Casey also manages their preparation training for selection into tier one units.
On this call, we discuss the framework that she and the rest of her human performance team use for training special operators, viewed through a model she calls the big five. These five categories make up the biggest pieces of a successful training process. If you’re an active duty special operator, or trying to become one, this is a really helpful model that you can use to evaluate or design your own training process.
