LEADERSHIP
 
Recovery should last about 15 minutes and occur immediately after the activities of the PRT session. Soldiers should begin recovery after running activities by walking until their heart rates return to less than 100 beats per minute and heavy sweating stops. Walking also may be needed after the end of a strength training circuit activity. Each recovery exercise position will be held for 20-30 seconds. The sequence of exercises listed in Table 8-3 will be performed in its entirety. The RD will be conducted at the end of all PRT sessions, especially after the conduct of the APFT, obstacle course, and foot marching. See Chapter 5, Planning Considerations, for more information.
 
INSTRUCTION AND EXECUTION
 
A PRT leader and AI are required to lead the RD. The PRT leader and AI must be familiar with the method of teaching these exercises, commands, formations, and the use of AIs as described in Chapter 7, Execution of Training. Soldiers should memorize the exercises by name and movement. The RD may be conducted by platoon or en masse. Soldiers move in and out of the starting position and exercise positions on the PRT leader’s command. Each exercise position is held for 20-30 seconds. Soldiers begin and terminate each exercise at the starting position, then move to the position of attention. The RD is always performed in the order listed. Considerable time and effort must be expended during the early stages to teach precise performance of each exercise. The PRT leader should not execute the RD in cadence and should not count seconds aloud.
 
PRECISION
 
Recovery exercises lose much of their value unless performed exactly as prescribed. PRT leaders and AIs must provide verbal feedback and make spot corrections to ensure that the Soldiers correctly assume the exercise positions.
 
PROGRESSION
 
In the toughening phase Soldiers hold each exercise position for 20 seconds. In the sustaining phase, the Soldier holds each exercise position for 20 seconds and progresses to 30 seconds. For either phase, if time allows, a second set of the RD may be performed.
 
INTEGRATION
 
Recovery integrates the components of strength and mobility by developing stability and flexibility.
 
COMMANDS
 
The commands used to conduct the RD are described Chapter 7, Execution of Training.
