A crime scene cleaner knows that physical training becomes a head trip , when it works.

, nothing less.

We know five subjects to keep in mind.

  1. Can you do your biohazard work at any time.
  2. Can you remain in shape at all times regardless of your age. Weight and strength belong to the elderly just as well as they do the young. Physical training belongs to all ages once we learn about physical training.
  3. Can you take part in physically stressful games and sport without risking injury, stroke, or heart attack?
  4. Can you bounce back from feeling fatigued, tired, spent? If so, you should feel good when at rest and ready to continue work or physical play.
  5. Can you keep your weight within normal ranges for your size and age?

These questions should present a picture of where you are and where you need to be as a crime scene cleaner.

A Marine Gunnery Sergeant recommends a "working fitness" standard for better health and endurance. His idea is that we need to move our body weight while using it to move stuff; we should be able to keep going at high-intensity short-term and lower-intensity long-term tasks. This all means that our minds are set for physical and mental stress.

A crime scene cleaner comes into a house ready to work for a long-term, low-intensity movement for cleaning. After a few hours stamina begins to tell whether or not the cleaning routine will continue without letup. At times a crime scene cleaner working alone may keep working for ten hours without break. So physical training becomes the only way to ensure that you've got the right stuff for this demanding occupation. Working-fitness becomes a daily routine for these very reasons.



 Endurance - Strength - Flexibility Movements

In order to work as well as possible, we need to train our bodies at least 3-5 hours a week, and more is better.

Balance - Keep training in a variety of areas; otherwise, you'll lack staining balance. As a result your endurance, strength, and flexibility will grow unbalanced. A professional cleaner needs balance because of the many unforeseen cleaning obstacles that arise on homicides, suicides, unattended deaths, and decompositions.

For example, triathlon athletes work at running, biking, and swimming. Swimming will do wonders for just about anyone. Add biking and running for the rest and a balanced athlete arises in short order. Do running only, and your aerobic fitness and leg conditioning will increase, but your overall working fitness will grow unbalanced.

Likewise with flexibility. one form of training leads to better strength than no training, but again, an unbalance develops. Exercises from martial arts, boxing, and weight lifting help, but there's more to learning to exercise anywhere at anytime.


Many people successful at a total working fitness level learn to balance their workouts. It goes something like this:

  1. For 5 minutes, warm-up.
  2. For 30 minutes, perform pre-fatigue work
  3. For 20 minutes, perform work related exercises
  4. For 5 minutes, cool off.

Once familiarity with this routine arrives, the idea becomes to workout to an exhausted state 3 to 4 times per week. It's important not to over do it though. Too much and you'll convince yourself that you don't want to workout anymore at physical training for crime scene cleanup.


Warming Up

Many people prefer to walk and stretch for about 5 minutes as their warm-up. This makes a lot of sense. Others do some light stretching and calisthenics to get their muscles loose. It's good for the heart, too, to work up your heart's pumping while causing it too much stress. No muscle will continuously work well if it's strained from a cold state every day, including the heart, our most important muscle.

It's important to do what you like for warming up. We're training the mind here as well as our bodies. Hurt the body and the mind rejects the painful act.

Keeping it Fun

They say, "No pain, no gain." It's not necessarily so. With pains comes negative reinforcement. Negative reinforces have their place in the world of sentient beings. From tiny worms to human beings, pain causes unforeseen outcomes. For example, we know that causing pain to a puppy stops unwanted behavior quickly. We know too that our puppy runs away at the first opportunity. Dogs are not dumb.

We know too that negative reinforcement's unforeseen consequences leads to injuries. We know too that behaviors develop in humans that we prefer not happen. For example, many juveniles suffering physical, emotional, or psychological abuse develop oppositional aggression. This is a fancy way of saying, they fight back. Their problem is that they fight back in unforeseen ways, ways unforeseen, unsuspected by them. So we know that negative reinforcement has its problems. "No pain, no gain" belongs to a losing school of learning.

So whenever possible, keep your physical fitness training fun. What might a crime scene cleaner do for fun while exercising for a total, working fitness?

Snow skiing, roller skating, inline skating, canoeing, mountain climbing, and so forth. Many opportunities to move our bodies in a fun manner come to mind when we brainstorm. Leave nothing out. It's easier to reject an idea that have no ideas to reject. Think wildly about your fun movement opportunities.

Even office workers have opportunities to exercise at their desks. Pilots, desk clerks, ticket takers, and even grocery store clerks can work at physical fitness for fun.


What about wearing a weighted vest through the day? This idea ensures that your body fights gravity more efficiently. Your heart pumps harder, your muscles strengthen, and the overall exertion and discomfort decreases as your strength increase. Exercising with a weight vest enhances so much more weight loss and muscle mass than we might think possible.

While walking with a weight vest on, we're free to use weights in our hands to increase our training efficiency Our hearts beat more rapidly, we breath more deeply, and our arms develop more strength.

Now think of your head and belly button as a clock face. The top of your head becomes 12:00. Your belly button becomes 6:00 o'clock. Put another way, the head becomes 0 degrees and the belly button becomes 180 degrees.

Increasing muscle mass in our arms has important work development outcomes. For example, as we walk we can hold the weights inclined toward a 90 degree angle in front and later in back. These angles become 240 degrees and 90 degrees respectively. Holding these positions biometrically increases our strength in long and short muscle groups.

On the job this becomes especially important for those crime scene cleaners interested in carrying plastic bags of solid waste and biowaste from death scenes. It's always easier to carry bags at a 20 degree angle to the rear than to carry them in front as we try to walk without interference.

Foot Gear

Wearing a good, supportive type of running shoe makes sense for running and walking. But what about other types of exercising for cleaning? Some cleaners prefer to wear good, protective boots. It makes good sense to wear foot gear similar to your working boots or shoes when exercising. If anything, it's always better to wear shoes or boots with more weight while exercising than while working.

Following these suggestions helps crime scene cleaners develop strength and stamina for the long haul. It's important to have increased cairo-vascular fitness and strong leg and upper muscle development for steady, efficient, safe crime scene cleanup tasks.

Some people recommend Bates "Lites" for working out boots. There are many others. The advantage for some cleaners who like to walk and run for fitness is that the Bates' boots give good protection, support, and low weight resistance. These boots will last over 1,000 miles (with or without a vest). Boots give trainees so much support they tend to increase motivation.

Stair Climbing

By making stair climbing part of your workout program, you can add it during your daily routines. Many people choose to use stairs instead of an escalator or elevator. Other like to climb stairs, return to starting point, and climb up again. These examples should help get the idea across. We can add crime scene cleanup training to our daily routines easily and without pain or undue stress.


Skating among crime scene cleaners shows us that this easy impact sport has many benefits, Cairo-vascular, muscular, even skeletal benefits arise from skating. Whether quad skating or inline skating, the crime scene cleaner benefits from this type of training.

How does skating apply to the day's tasks? It's important to keep in mind that prolonged periods of skating add to one's endurance and stamina. Flexibility increases as the joints and spine twist and turn as skaters power up and down hills.

The frame - plastic or aluminum.

Aluminum has a much strong frame; inline skating's goal is to send power from the legs to the boot to the frame and wheels. A stamped aluminum frame ar3e made out of a milled piece of aircraft aluminum. Giving the most power.


The boat gives performance and comfort depending on price. More goodies like memory foam, tongue, better lacing system with knobs and holes.

High end race skates have larger wheels. Their boot

A higher top for pleasure skating makes sense; high performance racing has a lower boot.

Brakes - The break normally mounts on the right skate. Skates need to fit true to size. Do not plan on growing into skates. Some people go down half a size for a super tight -

Buying a better skate for more money gives the crime scene cleaner a better performer, more comfortable boot.

Going with true foot size ensures fewer blisters, fewer cramps, fewer injuries. .

It's a big mistake to buy a too large skate.

Wide goes to rolerblades kind of skate. Narrow goes to the Casey kind of skate. Men's sizes are one size larger than women's skates. Hockey skates use a size smaller than true foot size.


How to wear skates. Avoiding pain begins like its pushing down or up. Don't try to fight your way when putting on skate. Laces should be loose when beginning. Loop when pulling across archway. . A loose boot in the first place allows for a loose fit. After five minutes, return to skates and tighten the upper ankle one more time.

With recreational boots the more ankle support comes with higher boots.

Six categories

Kids - Adjustable feature for four sizes. A lower end in sizes. Skate can grow with them.

Largest categories: recreational fitness.

Recreational has a higher boot; good time, enjoying skate;

fineness boot has less support and large wheels.


Recreational: higher boot, soft boot, moderate size wheels from 80 to 90 millimeter. Most people buy these for casual skating.

Fitness for experienced, faster smoother skating. more durable, stronger frame, lower boot, less support. Much stiffer boot.

4 Jump, bend skate, aggressive skate for beating heck out of skate. Takes abuse, plastic, molded out of plastic instead of soft boot; heavy boot

Street or Urban skate; crossover from aggressive and recreational skate; standard wheels, built in durability, plastic boot; greater for hanging out on street and doing some jumping.


Roller hockey skate for inline hockey. Happy boot. Turning, stopping, ok for traditional skating. smaller wheels for more performance.
