The predominant train of thought in the strength and conditioning field focuses on moving loads and/or objects in predictable patterns within a controlled environment with the end-game to increase strength and hopefully "power."  This thinking has evolved over time from a weight-lifting perspective.  Fine, but in a lot of ways this thinking is archaic.

What if we started to think about strength training and conditioning for tactical or sports-prep purposes really as a systematic process of training "Bodies in Motion."  What if the primary purpose of training was to prepare the human structure and systems contained within to be able to move and function in space at an optimal level and successfully negotiate and interact with an environment for any considerable period of time? 

Would you still train the same?
