Physical readiness training done right must include technique training prior to imposing a demand of performance on soldiers. And it now does thanks to the H2F initiative. Technique is the foundation of performance on any level, and most importantly, it is the most direct way to actually prevent movement related injuries.
…”When it came to physical readiness training, it was not the average PT session. With each workout, we focused on different muscle groups and did exercises tailored to every component of the ACFT. More importantly, we focused on correct weight lifting techniques and form, something that can easily be overlooked without proper training. Our fitness coach also showed us effective ways to row, bike and even run using the Pose method, which is a systematic approach to running in order to reduce injury.”
