5.11 Tactical is known by their mantra of Always Be Ready and this new line of gear is definitely prepared to get you there. Non-traditional, weight-bearing exercises are some of the most real-world, practical applications of fitness imaginable. While barbells and dumbbells absolutely have their place in improving one’s fitness, more often than not we pick up, move, and carry things that are odd, difficult shapes. That is why training with a weighted vest or a heavy, shifting sandbag can be so beneficial. A complete rundown of 5.11’s NEW Physical Training-Ready (PT-R) line of gear can be read below:
