An ideal unit PRT program strives to give Soldiers the knowledge they need to conduct their own quality PRT sessions between unit assemblies. The program should increase Soldier motivation so they habitually train on their own. Incorporating the PRT activities in this FM into IDT periods is one way to effect motivation with the added benefit of providing commanders a physical readiness snapshot. Most of the exercises, drills, and activities in this FM support the type of RC unit PRT program described in this section. For example, Soldiers would collectively learn CD 1 during the unit assembly—then train on their own between unit assemblies— raising their proficiency and readiness level at the same time. Soldiers are then prepared for PRT sessions conducted during subsequent IDT and AT periods. Few of the exercises, drills, and activities in this FM require expensive or hard-to-obtain equipment so they can easily be performed individually.
