Abstract

Tactical personnel are required to carry external loads as part of their everyday occupation. This load carriage can come with increased risk of injury or degradation of individual performance. To ensure these risks are minimized tactical personnel are routinely required to meet strict aerobic and anaerobic requirements. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive relationship between a variety of
fitness parameters and load carriage performance utilizing a modified predictive equation.
