PRT DOCTRINE PARTS
3 PARTS (PSA)
PRT DOCTRINE PART I:
Philosophy covers approach, system, and leadership.
PRT DOCTRINE PART II:
Strategy covers types of programs, planning considerations, and special conditioning programs.
PRT DOCTRINE PART III:
Activities covers execution of training, preparation and recovery, strength and mobility, and endurance and mobility.

PRT IS THE __________________ PROGRAM
TO ACCOMPLISH THE PRT MISSION, NCO'S TO WHAT?
PREPARE, REHEARSE, AND EXECUTE PRT
HOW MANY TENENTS OF "TRAIN AS YOU WILL FIGHT"?
WHAT IS WOVEN INTO THE FABRIC OF THE PRT SYSTEM?
DEVELOPING THE ABILITY OF SOLDIERS TO MEET THE CHANGING PHYSICAL DEMANDS THAT ARE PLACED UPON THEM WITHOUT UNDUE FATIGUE OR RISK OF INJURY
Initial Conditioning Phase
These exercises and activities prepares the individual for the rigors of initial military training (IMT).
Initial Conditioning Phase
initial military training
In this phase, Soldiers gradually become proficient at managing their weight.
PRT incorporates 3 inter-related components
Soldiers need ______to foot march under load, enter and clear a building or trench line, repeatedly load heavy rounds, lift equipment, transport a wounded Soldier to the casualty collection point and to be able to withstand the rigors of continuous operations while under load.
the ability to sustain high-intensity activity of short duration (anaerobic), and low-intensity activity of long duration (aerobic).
Soldiers must train to perform activities of high intensity and short duration efficiently.
Examples of _______ training are speed running, individual movement techniques and negotiation of obstacles.
Examples of ______training are foot marching, sustained running, cycling and swimming.
This is the functional application of strength and endurance. It is movement proficiency.
Strength with _______ allows a Soldier to squat and lift an injured Soldier. Without sufficient mobility, a strong Soldier may have difficulty executing the same casualty transport technique.
Endurance without _______ may be acceptable to a distance runner. For Soldiers performing individual movement techniques, both components are essential for optimal performance.
Ability to stop, start and change direction
Ability to maintain equilibrium
Ability to perform multiple tasks
Range of motion at a joint and surrounding muscles
Any position in which the body resides
Structural integrity that enhances body management
Product of strength and speed
Types of PRT
Mobility Qualitative Performance Factors
The two types of commands used in PRT are ______ commands and commands of ________.
When the PRT leader addresses the formation and is commanding movement or announcing the name of an exercise, he does so from ________
________ exercises that change position without returning to the position of attention. When exercises are performed, Soldiers assume the proper starting position of each exercise on the command “Starting position, MOVE”.
When conducting exercises, Soldiers are commanded to return to the position of attention from the terminating position of the exercise before they are commanded to assume the starting position for the next exercise. PRT leaders use the command “Position of Attention, MOVE”, to bring Soldiers to the position of attention from an exercise terminating position.
the position of attention.
Progression and Training Effect
The following are gradually increased to produce the desired physiological effect:
- Intensity (resistance and pace)
- Volume (number of sets and repetitions)
- Duration (time)
- Resistance (weight)
- Number of sets
- Number of repetitions
Exercise for Corrective Action
- Leg Tuck and Twist
- Supine Bicycle
- 8-count Push-up
- Squat Bender
- Prone Row
PRT sessions consist of the elements of:
Walk 2 -3 minutes following running activities AND at the end of all PRT sessions. This gradually and safely tapers activities to bring the body back to its pre-exercise state.
Ensuring adequate sleep allows the body to refuel and rest.
