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.”
The Pose Method of Running Training Course is now available online to all soldiers.
Running has always been part of military training. It is an essential activity that is part of virtually everything else soldiers must do on regular basis. And it’s been known for years, that as an activity, running is also the most dangerous athletic movement solely due to the amount of injuries that soldiers sustain. More than 2 out of 3 injured soldiers face injuries from running. However, running itself is not the issue.
Soldiers are trained and taught how to do everything else, but, when it comes to running, they were always left to figure things out on their own. Until now.
Health and Holistic Fitness, or H2F is a big initiative by the Army to revamp training protocols. One of the major updates in the new doctrine is the addition of Running Skill (Pose Method) in FM 7-22 (Chapter 7).
Running Skill training is now available, on demand – forcewide – through the ArmyIgnitED program. Individual Soldiers can watch Pose Method running skill training videos online.
