Pulling / Climbing
From: FM 7-22 October 2012


When pulling an object that is on the ground or horizontal to it, Soldiers must first assume the power position. Set the shoulder girdle by pulling the shoulder blades slightly to the rear. This is also important when pulling the body upward from an overhead grasp. Climbing will often require the legs to power the accent or gain leverage on support structures (Figure C-15). This will demand significant strength from the trunk muscles. The exercises in the CLs prepare Soldiers for these demands.
