Abstract

Reserve (part-time) army personnel typically perform occupational and operational tasks akin to those of their active-duty counterparts but may have lower fitness because of less physical training. As such, reserve military personnel may be at a greater risk of injury and have physical performance deficits. To improve fitness and performance, training guidelines suggest 3 d/wk aerobic training and 2 d/wk of strength training, although some days may include both. Among reserve military personnel away from their units, both general and occupationally oriented training could be tracked using computer applications and/or by evening training in groups, which may improve compliance and motivation.
