RECOVERY DRILL
 
The RD exercises require no verbal cadence. Soldiers move in and out of the starting position and each exercise position on the PRT leader’s commands. Soldiers hold each exercise position for 20 seconds in the toughening phase and 20-30 seconds in the sustaining phase during recovery. The leader does not count the seconds aloud. This is how he conducts recovery exercise 1, overhead arm pull:
  • The PRT leader commands, “THE OVERHEAD ARM PULL.” Each Soldier responds, “THE OVERHEAD ARM PULL.”
  • The PRT leader commands, “Starting Position, MOVE.” Each Soldier moves into the starting position, straddle stance with hands on hips.
  • The command to begin the stretch is, “Ready, STRETCH.” Each Soldier raises his left arm overhead and places his left hand behind his head and grasps above his left elbow with his right hand. He then pulls to the right, leaning his body to the right. He holds this position for 20-30 seconds.
  • The PRT leader commands, “Starting Position, MOVE.” Each Soldier moves into the starting position.
  • The PRT leader gives the command to stretch the other side of the body: “Change Position, Ready, STRETCH.” Each Soldier raises his right arm overhead and places his right hand behind his head and grasps above his right elbow with his left hand. He then pulls to his left, leaning his body to the left. He holds this position for 20-30 seconds.
  • The PRT leader commands, “Starting Position, MOVE.” Each Soldier assumes the starting position.
  • The PRT leader assumes the position of attention and commands, “Position of Attention, MOVE.” Each Soldier assumes the position of attention.
