ARMY WEIGHT CONTROL PROGRAM

See AR 600-9 for the policy and procedures that apply to screening and enrollment in the AWCP. AR 350-1 specifies that the AWCP will be kept separate and distinct from other special conditioning programs. Soldiers recovering from injury, illness or other medical conditions will be in reconditioning. Soldiers who fail the APFT or other unit physical readiness goals will continue participation in regular PRT sessions with the unit. Soldiers who fail to meet AR 600-9 standards will be enrolled in the AWCP and continue participation in regular unit PRT sessions. They should also participate in additional low impact, caloric expenditure activities.
