Abstract

Basic training is a crucial stage of training in which injuries occur at a higher rate than at other stages of a trainee’s career. Basic training is constantly changing based on reviews of ongoing injuries, equipment changes and performance requirements. Given that most injuries are overuse and due to cumulative loads, it is important to quantify training loads during basic training. The purpose of this
investigation was to compare a basic recruit training course across two time periods (2018 and 2010) with a specific focus on distances walked and run, loads carried and lifted.
