RECOVERY DRILL

Table 8-3 lists the 5, two-position exercises that comprise the RD. These 5 exercises are always performed in the order listed and held for 20 to 30 seconds. The recovery exercises are not given in cadence. Soldiers move in and out of the starting position and exercise positions on the PRT leader’s command. The seconds are not counted out loud.
