Distances travelled during recruit physical training: A drop in the bucket

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


Distances travelled during military recruit physical training
(PT), be it walking, marching or running, are often the focus of
injury mitigation strategies. However, these distances are not
considered in relation to the entire recruit training program. The
aim of this study was to quantify distances walked, marched,
and run by recruits across the entire Army recruit training
program and to establish the contribution of PT to these totals.
