Sounds good, but like someone said, it comes down to personal commitment. Complex systems are not the answer when you are dealing half a million Soldiers.* PT needs to focus on weightlifting for strength/endurance 3 times per week and 10 minutes of HIIT training right afterwards.* Add some LSD's, swimming, the usual calisthenics and you have a winning "system".* More important than the fitness system implemented is getting Soldiers to a battle ready weight through proper nutrition.* Once again, a personal commitment.* What's killing guys coming into theater is the extra 30lbs around their waist from eating at BK, KFC, and any other fast food restaurant you find on post.* America's carb heavy diet is not meant for warriors.
