TOUGHENING PHASE PRT SCHEDULE

The toughening phase PRT schedule is used in BCT and OSUT (R/W/B phases). The BOLC A leaders can use this schedule as a guide for developing PRT in their course program of instruction (POI). Physical readiness training should be conducted five to six days per week depending on the POI and course training schedule. When following this schedule, all PRT sessions occur in order, regardless of the off day(s). Each day’s PRT activities also occur in the order listed. Not every toughening phase activity is listed in this schedule. To achieve optimal progression while controlling injuries, toughening phase PRT activities are specifically ordered and sessions sequenced according to the system described in Chapter 2. The activities and sessions should therefore be performed in the order listed on the schedule. Refer to Table 5-2, Toughening Phase PRT Daily Session Overview, for an example of activity sequencing and session purpose. Higher level activities such as the CDOC, confidence obstacle course, and combatives are most appropriate when performed in the sustaining phase; however, Soldiers are introduced to these activities while still in the toughening phase. Thus, PRT leaders must focus their instruction of these activities on proper technique and lead-up skills to ensure safety and successful execution. Table 5-3, Toughening Phase PRT Schedules (BCT and OSUT-R/W/B phases) describe the ordered sequence of training to be used for PRT in BCT and OSUT-R/W/B phases.
