Curtis Bartlett

Fitness Trainer, Firearms Instructor, Sheriff Deputy

Curtis Bartlett AKA “Police Fitness” was a Law Enforcement security professional who works overseas. He combined fitness with everyday duties as a Sheriff Deputy and a Firearms Instructor.

Bartlett first turned to the weight room in 2011, after recovering from a serious knee injury. Over the years, he built a strong and an aesthetic physique, gaining thousands of online fans along the way.

He’s since become a role model and motivation for people in the military, police, and everyone involved in the “fitness movement”.  He lived to serve the people, protecting society as a Deputy Sheriff.

“Making excuses burns exactly 0 calories.”

Training

Balancing the life of a police officer with his passion for fitness was though; however, Curtis made no excuses. He trained 4-6 days per week, focusing mostly on full-body workouts.

However, he would switch his routine sometimes, and do muscle group splits. This way, he would put the body in a“state of shock”, inducing muscle growth.

His favorite exercises were weighted pull-ups, jump squats, and dumbbell chest press. When doing any exercise which involves chest, Curtis made sure to adequately warm up beforehand. He said this way, he avoided potential injuries.

Curtis’ Full-Body Arsenal Training

  • Half-Mile Run
  • 5x Muscle-Ups
  • 10x Push-ups
  • 5x Wide Grip Pull-Ups
  • 25x Air Squats
  • 5x Chin-Ups
  • 10x Burpees
  • 10x Alternating Cliffhangers
  • Finish with a 4th Half-Mile Run

 

 Nutrition

Curtis had a fast metabolism from the HIIT training he’d often do. However, he would indulge in a cheat meal whenever he felt his body craved it.

Generally, he ate healthy; having five meals a day. Each of his meals consisted of three vital macronutrients – fats, carbs, and proteins.

However, he tended to eat more carbs in the morning and at noon, while increasing his fat intake in the evening hours. His protein intake stayed similar throughout the day, consuming around 180 grams of whole-food protein.

Curtis prefered whole foods over supplementation. In case he couldn’t hit his daily protein goals for the day, he may have added in a scoop or two, of a quality whey isolate supplement, or used BCAAs throughout the day.
