MILITARY MOVEMENT DRILL 1 EXERCISE MODIFICATIONS
During level II resume MMD 1 by reducing the distance from 25 to 15 yards and ensure the Soldier limits the speed and intensity of movement.
- For verticals, start with minimal air time and gradually progress to more powerful movements.
- For laterals this means decreasing the crouch and stepping movements instead of maintaining the normal tempo.
- The shuttle sprint is often restricted by profile. When conducting the shuttle sprint, ensure that the Soldier is able to negotiate the turns at walking speed before allowing him to run. In the post-profile period, resume the shuttle sprint without touching the hand to the ground on turns, and then gradually work toward bending enough to touch the ground.
