MARCHING

The head and trunk checkpoints for standing also apply to marching. Allow the arms to swing naturally, though crossing the midline of the body is excessive. Allow the hips to naturally rotate forward with each stride. Do not allow the knees to lock at any point in the walking cycle. Stride naturally, landing on the heel and pushing off with most of the weight toward the big toe. The feet remain directed forward. Do not strain to keep the feet directed forward, since variations in skeletal alignment will prevent some Soldiers from assuming the feet-forward position. Foot marching with a load on the back will require some forward lean of the trunk. Do not, however, allow the trunk and shoulders to round forward (Figure C-19).
