RECOVERY DRILL, MODIFIED EXERCISE 3: MODIFIED EXTEND AND FLEX

The instructor may modify this exercise by using a standing (Figure 6-99) or prone position. The Soldier may assume the starting position for the extend and flex using the prone position. To do so, the Soldier steps back into the front leaning rest position (Figure 6-100) instead of performing a squat thrust. In the postprofile period, range of motion for some exercises may still be limited. Soldiers may modify the extend position by raising up their forearms instead of their hands or by laying prone with the arms alongside the body, palms up (Figure 6-101). Over time, the Soldier gradually increases the range of motion and works toward the standard execution of each exercise.
