Recovery serves to gradually slow the heart rate and helps prevent pooling of the blood in the legs and feet. The purpose of the RD is to develop range of motion and stability to enhance performance, control injuries, and gradually bring the body back to its pre-exercise state. To adequately recover from one PRT session to another on consecutive days, Soldiers must restore hydration and energy through proper fluid intake and nutrition. This recovery period also includes receiving adequate rest and sleep to allow the body to physiologically adapt to the physical stresses of PRT.


Any dry, level area of adequate size is satisfactory for conduct of the RD.


Soldiers should wear ACUs with boots or the IPFU. The uniform should be appropriate for the PRT activity that precedes recovery. For example, when the activity is the CL 2 or the GD, ACUs with boots will be worn.




The extended rectangular formation is prescribed for the conduct of the RD.
