These subtests are used by the military to determine your aptitude to learn various military jobs.</p>\n<p>Four of the ASVAB subtests are used to compute the Armed Forces AFQT score, a percentile score that runs from 1 to 99. This score determines whether you’re qualified to join the military service of your choice. Each branch of the military has its own minimum AFQT score standards:</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Army (including Army National Guard and Army Reserves):</strong> The Army requires a minimum AFQT score of 31 for those with a high school diploma and a score of 50 for those with a high school equivalency certificate. When the Army is experiencing high recruiting and reenlistment rates, it has been known to temporarily increase its qualifying AFQT score minimum to as high as 50.</li>\n<li><strong>Air Force (including Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves):</strong> Air Force recruits must score at least a 36 on the AFQT to qualify for enlistment, but more than 70 percent of people who are accepted for an Air Force enlistment score 50 or above. For those who have a high school equivalency certificate instead of a high school diploma, the minimum score is 65.</li>\n<li><strong>Navy:</strong> Navy recruits must score at least 35 on the AFQT to qualify for enlistment. If you have a high school equivalency certificate, the minimum score is 50.</li>\n<li><strong>Navy Reserves:</strong> The Navy Reserves requires a minimum score of 31 on the AFQT for those with a high school diploma and 50 for those with a high school equivalency certificate. The Navy is the only branch for which the requirements for the Reserves are different from the requirements for the branch itself.</li>\n<li><strong>Marine Corps (including Marine Corps Reserves):</strong> Marine Corps recruits must score at least 32. People who have a high school equivalency certificate must score a minimum of 50 on the AFQT to be considered. The Marine Corps limits GED enlistments to about 5 percent to 10 percent per year.</li>\n<li><strong>Coast Guard (including Coast Guard Reserves):</strong> The Coast Guard requires a minimum of 40 points on the AFQT. A waiver is possible for applicants with prior service if their ASVAB line scores qualify them for a specific job and they’re willing to enlist in that job. The minimum AFQT score for people who have a high school equivalency certificate is 50.</li>\n</ul>\n"},{"title":"Acing the math subtests","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>Two of the four subtests that make up your AFQT score are math tests. The first, Arithmetic Reasoning, tests your ability to use mathematics to solve various problems that you may encounter in real life — in other words, math word problems.</p>\n<p>The second, Mathematics Knowledge, tests your ability to solve general math problems. Here are some tips to help maximize your ASVAB math subtest scores:</p>\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Memorize the math order of operations.</strong> Start by working everything in parentheses. Then move on to exponents. Then perform any multiplication and division. End with addition and subtraction. An easy way to remember this order is to think of the phrase, “<strong>P</strong>lease <strong>E</strong>xcuse <strong>M</strong>y <strong>D</strong>ear <strong>A</strong>unt <strong>S</strong>ally” (<strong>P</strong>arentheses, <strong>E</strong>xponents, <strong>M</strong>ultiply, <strong>D</strong>ivide, <strong>A</strong>dd, <strong>S</strong>ubtract). While this order is flexible in some situations, knowing the basic order will help you maximize your score.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Remember the apples-and-oranges rule. </strong>Be sure to convert units of measurement so that they’re consistent. If a question asks how many 3-x-6-inch bricks it will take to cover a 6-x-6-foot patio, be sure to recognize that inches and feet are two different measurements and perform the necessary conversions.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Memorize common math formulas before the day of the test. </strong>These formulas are not provided for you at the testing center. After you receive your scratch paper, take a moment before the test starts and write down all the formulas you’ve memorized. Here’s a list of some of the formulas you need to know:</p>\n<ul class=\"level-two\">\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Perimeter of a square:</strong> <em>p</em> = 4<em>s</em>, where <em>s</em> = one side of the square</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Area of a square:</strong> <em>a</em> = <em>s</em><sup>2</sup></p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Diagonal of a square:</strong></p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/167363.image0.png\" alt=\"image0.png\" width=\"100\" height=\"34\" /></li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Perimeter of a rectangle:</strong> <em>p</em> = 2<em>l</em> + 2<em>w</em>, where <em>l</em> = the length and <em>w</em> = the width of the rectangle</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Area of a rectangle:</strong> <em>a</em> = <em>lw</em></p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Diagonal of a rectangle:</strong></p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/167364.image1.png\" alt=\"image1.png\" width=\"110\" height=\"29\" />, where <em>d =</em> the diagonal, <em>l =</em> the length, and <em>w =</em> the width of the rectangle.

Assessing each question quickly to decide whether you know the answer (or you can figure it out) or whether you need to guess will help ensure that you make it through each subtest with time to spare. If a question is beyond your skill level, make an informed guess and move on.</p>\n<p><strong>Eliminate bad choices.</strong> If you don’t know the answer to a question but you’re sure one or two of them are wrong, focus on the remaining answers and try to determine which one is more reasonable. Ruling out obviously incorrect answers will help improve your odds of getting the right answer.</p>\n<p><strong>Answer every question.</strong> Most people take the computerized version of the ASVAB (CAT-ASVAB), but a small number of people still take the paper and pencil (P&amp;P) version of the test. Either way, strive to answer every question. You have a 100 percent chance of getting a question wrong if you don’t answer it, but at least a 25 percent chance of getting it right.</p>\n<p><strong>Pay special attention the questions that follow guesses.</strong> The CAT-ASVAB adapts to your skill level. That means it first presents you with a question of medium difficulty; if you get it right, you see a harder question next. Get it wrong and the computer dishes up an easier one. A series of wrong answers can be really bad for your score, so if you’re taking the CAT-ASVAB and need to guess on a question, pay extra attention to the one that follows it. Getting that question right will help the test evaluate your ability more accurately.</p>\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">The CAT-ASVAB adapts to your ability. Some people take the entire test without ever seeing a difficult question, while others find that most of their questions feature advanced concepts. Your mileage <em>will </em>vary based on your skills.</p>\n"}],"videoInfo":{"videoId":null,"name":null,"accountId":null,"playerId":null,"thumbnailUrl":null,"description":null,"uploadDate":null}},"sponsorship":{"sponsorshipPage":false,"backgroundImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"brandingLine":"","brandingLink":"","brandingLogo":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"sponsorAd":"","sponsorEbookTitle":"","sponsorEbookLink":"","sponsorEbookImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0}},"primaryLearningPath":"Advance","lifeExpectancy":"Two years","lifeExpectancySetFrom":"2024-11-01T00:00:00+00:00","dummiesForKids":"no","sponsoredContent":"no","adInfo":"","adPairKey":[]},"status":"publish","visibility":"public","articleId":209273},{"headers":{"creationTime":"2017-03-26T14:38:08+00:00","modifiedTime":"2024-10-18T20:58:02+00:00","timestamp":"2024-10-18T21:01:03+00:00"},"data":{"breadcrumbs":[{"name":"Academics & The Arts","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33662"},"slug":"academics-the-arts","categoryId":33662},{"name":"Study Skills & Test Prep","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33772"},"slug":"study-skills-test-prep","categoryId":33772},{"name":"Armed Services","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33776"},"slug":"armed-services","categoryId":33776}],"title":"4 Ways to Fine-Tune Specific ASVAB Study Areas","strippedTitle":"4 ways to fine-tune specific asvab study areas","slug":"4-ways-to-fine-tune-specific-asvab-study-areas","canonicalUrl":"","浏览引挚改善调整":{"metaDescription":"As you're studying for the ASVAB, try these four different ways to strengthen your knowledge and skills in areas where you need more work.","noIndex":0,"noFollow":0},"content":"After you’ve identified which ASVAB subjects you’re the weakest in, concentrate on boosting your abilities in those areas to improve your overall success on the exam.

Touch the 25-meter line with your foot and hand, bust a U-turn, and sprint back to the start line.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Drag: </strong>Grab each strap handle on the sled. Pull the sled backward until you have the whole thing over the 25-meter line and then turn it around and pull it back. The entire sled has to cross the start line.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283781\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"499\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283781\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/acft-sled-drag.jpg\" alt=\"Sled drag\" width=\"499\" height=\"600\" /> Zack McCrory<br /><br />Sled drag[/caption]\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">Don’t jerk the straps—use a steady pull to move the sled. Remember not to sling the sled to turn it around, too.</p>\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Lateral: </strong>Face one side and perform a lateral run for 25 meters, touch the line with your foot and hand, and head back to the start line. Face the same direction on the way back. Don’t cross your feet during laterals.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Carry: </strong>Pick up your pair of 40-pound kettlebells and run to the 25-meter line. Step on or over the line with one foot, turn around, and run back to the start line.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">Be careful when you turn around with the kettlebells—maintain control of your feet and the kettlebells the whole time. If you drop the kettlebells, just pick them up and keep moving.</p>\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Sprint: </strong>Put your kettlebells on the ground, turn around, and sprint to the 25-meter line. Touch the line with a hand and foot and then return to the start line as fast as you can.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nYour time stops when you cross the start line after your final sprint.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">In this race against the clock, you need to complete all five events in 3 minutes flat to get 60 points. Finish in 2:30 to get 65 points, or wrap it up under 2:10 to get 70 points. Power through the whole thing in 1:33, and you max it out with 100 points.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" ><a name=\"_Toc38278844\"></a>Sprint-Drag-Carry instructions</h2>\r\nThe Sprint-Drag-Carry (SDC) comprises five separate events, and each one comes with specific rules for proper execution. The Army’s instructions for the SDC are as follows:\r\n\r\nYou must assume the prone position with hands on the ground beneath your shoulders and with the top of your head behind the start line, ready to complete five consecutive and continuous 50-meter shuttles. For the first shuttle, on the command “Go,” stand up and sprint 25 meters before touching the 25-meter line with your foot and hand, turning at the line and sprinting back to the start. If you fail to touch properly, the scorer will call you back before allowing you to continue. For the second shuttle, grasp each pull-strap handle to pull the sled backwards until the whole sled crosses the 25-meter line. If you fail to cross the line with the sled, the scorer will call you back before allowing you to continue. Turn and drag the sled back to the start line.\r\n\r\nFor the third shuttle, you will perform the lateral for 25 meters, touching the line with the foot and hand before performing the lateral back to the start line. The lateral will be performed to the left in one direction and to the right in the other direction. For the fourth shuttle, grasp the handles of the two 40-pound kettlebells and run 25 meters, touching the line with the foot before returning back to the start line. Place the kettlebells on the ground without dropping them. For the fifth shuttle, sprint 25 meters to the line, touching with the foot and hand, before turning and sprinting back to the start line to complete the event.\r\n\r\nIn plain English, that means you start the SDC on your stomach, in the prone position (just like the starting position for the HRP), and then you spring into action for the first sprint. When you hit the 25-meter line, you touch it with your foot and hand, turn around, and come right back to the starting point. Then you grab your sled handles and drag the sled to the 25-meter line as you run backward. Wheel it over the line, turn around and drag it all the way back across the start line, drop the handles, and go right into your laterals. Hit the line with your hand and come right back (while still facing the same way). Get over the start line and pick up your two 40-pound kettlebells. Carry them to the 25-meter line and back as quickly as you can, and then do your final sprint (down to the 25-meter line and back).\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">The SDC events are always in the same order: sprint, sled drag, laterals, kettlebells, and sprint.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" ><a name=\"_Toc38278845\"></a>SDC tips and techniques</h2>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">The sled drag may not trip you up, but it’s likely to pre-fatigue the muscles you need for the remaining events. The two sprints are where you really give it your all; because they’re a relatively short distance, you can make up some time if you lose it in other shuttles.</p>\r\nTry these other suggestions as well:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Pull your sled straight back and keep your eyes forward while you’re moving backward—don’t try to turn to look for the 25-meter or finish line. You’re not going to miss the line; you see it as soon as you cross it. This way, you can also use your whole body to pull the sled rather than only the side that’s closest to it.</li>\r\n \t<li>Use your legs for the sled drag—don’t flex your arms by trying to pull the handles in close to your body. Lean back and let your arms extend so you’re not pre-fatiguing your grip and your biceps (remember, the Leg Tuck is still on the horizon). This figure gives you a look at what your upper body should look like in the Sled Drag.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283780\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"556\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283780\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/acft-sled-dog.jpg\" alt=\"Proper form for the Sled Drag\" width=\"556\" height=\"454\" /> Zack McCrory<br /><br />Proper form for the Sled Drag[/caption]\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Keep your chest tall while you drag the sled and lean back as you pull. Your core muscles and your lats (technically, your latissimus dorsi) work with your legs to provide you with enough power to get the sled across the line.</li>\r\n \t<li>Get into an athletic stance before you do laterals. You go faster—and stay safer—if you get low and leggy.

In combat, you use these skills to build a hasty fighting position, pull a casualty out of a vehicle and carry him or her to safety, react to fire, and carry ammo from Point A to Point B.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283782\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"556\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283782\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/acft-spring-drag-carry.jpg\" alt=\"Muscles used in the Sprint-Drag-Carry.\" width=\"556\" height=\"503\" /> Muscles used in the Sprint-Drag-Carry[/caption]\r\n\r\nHere are the five parts of this event, which you start in the prone position with the top of your head behind the start line:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Sprint: </strong>On the command of “Go,” jump up and sprint 25 meters in your lane. Touch the 25-meter line with your foot and hand, bust a U-turn, and sprint back to the start line.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Drag: </strong>Grab each strap handle on the sled. Pull the sled backward until you have the whole thing over the 25-meter line and then turn it around and pull it back. The entire sled has to cross the start line.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283781\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"499\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283781\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/acft-sled-drag.jpg\" alt=\"Sled drag\" width=\"499\" height=\"600\" /> Zack McCrory<br /><br />Sled drag[/caption]\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">Don’t jerk the straps—use a steady pull to move the sled. Remember not to sling the sled to turn it around, too.</p>\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Lateral: </strong>Face one side and perform a lateral run for 25 meters, touch the line with your foot and hand, and head back to the start line. Face the same direction on the way back. Don’t cross your feet during laterals.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Carry: </strong>Pick up your pair of 40-pound kettlebells and run to the 25-meter line. Step on or over the line with one foot, turn around, and run back to the start line.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">Be careful when you turn around with the kettlebells—maintain control of your feet and the kettlebells the whole time. If you drop the kettlebells, just pick them up and keep moving.</p>\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Sprint: </strong>Put your kettlebells on the ground, turn around, and sprint to the 25-meter line. Touch the line with a hand and foot and then return to the start line as fast as you can.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nYour time stops when you cross the start line after your final sprint.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">In this race against the clock, you need to complete all five events in 3 minutes flat to get 60 points. Finish in 2:30 to get 65 points, or wrap it up under 2:10 to get 70 points. Power through the whole thing in 1:33, and you max it out with 100 points.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" ><a name=\"_Toc38278844\"></a>Sprint-Drag-Carry instructions</h2>\r\nThe Sprint-Drag-Carry (SDC) comprises five separate events, and each one comes with specific rules for proper execution. The Army’s instructions for the SDC are as follows:\r\n\r\nYou must assume the prone position with hands on the ground beneath your shoulders and with the top of your head behind the start line, ready to complete five consecutive and continuous 50-meter shuttles. For the first shuttle, on the command “Go,” stand up and sprint 25 meters before touching the 25-meter line with your foot and hand, turning at the line and sprinting back to the start. If you fail to touch properly, the scorer will call you back before allowing you to continue. For the second shuttle, grasp each pull-strap handle to pull the sled backwards until the whole sled crosses the 25-meter line. If you fail to cross the line with the sled, the scorer will call you back before allowing you to continue. Turn and drag the sled back to the start line.\r\n\r\nFor the third shuttle, you will perform the lateral for 25 meters, touching the line with the foot and hand before performing the lateral back to the start line. The lateral will be performed to the left in one direction and to the right in the other direction. For the fourth shuttle, grasp the handles of the two 40-pound kettlebells and run 25 meters, touching the line with the foot before returning back to the start line. Place the kettlebells on the ground without dropping them. For the fifth shuttle, sprint 25 meters to the line, touching with the foot and hand, before turning and sprinting back to the start line to complete the event.\r\n\r\nIn plain English, that means you start the SDC on your stomach, in the prone position (just like the starting position for the HRP), and then you spring into action for the first sprint. When you hit the 25-meter line, you touch it with your foot and hand, turn around, and come right back to the starting point. Then you grab your sled handles and drag the sled to the 25-meter line as you run backward. Wheel it over the line, turn around and drag it all the way back across the start line, drop the handles, and go right into your laterals. Hit the line with your hand and come right back (while still facing the same way). Get over the start line and pick up your two 40-pound kettlebells. Carry them to the 25-meter line and back as quickly as you can, and then do your final sprint (down to the 25-meter line and back).\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">The SDC events are always in the same order: sprint, sled drag, laterals, kettlebells, and sprint.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" ><a name=\"_Toc38278845\"></a>SDC tips and techniques</h2>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">The sled drag may not trip you up, but it’s likely to pre-fatigue the muscles you need for the remaining events. The two sprints are where you really give it your all; because they’re a relatively short distance, you can make up some time if you lose it in other shuttles.</p>\r\nTry these other suggestions as well:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Pull your sled straight back and keep your eyes forward while you’re moving backward—don’t try to turn to look for the 25-meter or finish line. You’re not going to miss the line; you see it as soon as you cross it. This way, you can also use your whole body to pull the sled rather than only the side that’s closest to it.</li>\r\n \t<li>Use your legs for the sled drag—don’t flex your arms by trying to pull the handles in close to your body. Lean back and let your arms extend so you’re not pre-fatiguing your grip and your biceps (remember, the Leg Tuck is still on the horizon). This figure gives you a look at what your upper body should look like in the Sled Drag.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283780\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"556\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283780\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/acft-sled-dog.jpg\" alt=\"Proper form for the Sled Drag\" width=\"556\" height=\"454\" /> Zack McCrory<br /><br />Proper form for the Sled Drag[/caption]\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Keep your chest tall while you drag the sled and lean back as you pull. Your core muscles and your lats (technically, your latissimus dorsi) work with your legs to provide you with enough power to get the sled across the line.</li>\r\n \t<li>Get into an athletic stance before you do laterals. You go faster—and stay safer—if you get low and leggy. Don’t bounce, because bouncing slows you down and wastes valuable energy.</li>\r\n \t<li>Engage your deltoids and lats to keep your kettlebells under control while you run with them. If you let your kettlebells swing, you can hurt yourself (or drop them, which costs you time).</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283779\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"556\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283779\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/acft-deltoids-lats.jpg\" alt=\"deltoids and lats\" width=\"556\" height=\"490\" /> Kathryn Born<br /><br />Latissimus dorsi and deltoids[/caption]\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" ><a name=\"_Toc38278846\"></a>Trouble spots on the SDC</h2>\r\nIf you perform something incorrectly on the SDC, your grader calls you back to the start and has you repeat the shuttle.

You may be eligible for the modified ACFT—called the ACFT MOD—if you have clearance from your medical provider.\r\n\r\nSoldiers are required to participate in all the events they’re not profiled against, but at minimum, a permanently profiled soldier has to pass the following, regardless of his or her job’s physical demand category:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>MDL: </strong>In the 3 Repetition Maximum Deadlift, you have to lift a minimum of 140 pounds, which nets you a score of 60 points.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>SDC: </strong>Every permanently profiled soldier has to complete the Sprint-Drag-Carry in under three minutes (that’s the 60-point score again).</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>An aerobic event: </strong>Depending on your profile, you may be required to participate in the Two-Mile-Run, the 5,000-Meter Row, the 15,000-Meter Bike, or the 1,000-Meter Swim. You must complete your alternate aerobic event within 25 minutes. (The 2MR rules are exactly the same as they are on the standard ACFT, but you must complete the course in 21 minutes.)</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nYou still take the ACFT MOD with your unit, but you’re the last in line for each event, and you take only the events your profile allows. You begin your alternate events 10 minutes after you complete your last standard event (unless you’re taking the swim event, in which case you leave right away for the pool). Unlike the other ACFT events, the test supervisor reads instructions before each of these events.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283755\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"556\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283755\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/acft-modified.jpg\" alt=\"swimming in modified ACFT\" width=\"556\" height=\"255\" /> © Jsnow my wolrd / Shutterstock.com[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">The ACFT MOD is only available to soldiers who are on permanent profiles. If you have a temporary profile, the Army expects you to recondition, retrain, and pass the full six-event ACFT.</p>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">The requirements for the ACFT MOD are subject to change. The Army is serious when it says that the rules governing this test are “living documents.”</p>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Call your grader over when you’re getting close to the end of your required distance on the bike or row event. He or she has to watch your odometer and clock the exact moment you cross the “finish line” to record your point score.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" ><a name=\"_Toc38274773\"></a>Bike</h2>\r\nThe 15,000-Meter Bike event is another way the Army can measure your cardiovascular fitness. The bike event requires a stationary bike with an adjustable seat and handlebars so it can accommodate soldiers of different heights. The bike has to be equipped with an odometer and a stationary cycle ergometer.\r\n\r\nYou get a short warm-up period and time to adjust the seat and handlebars. <a name=\"_Toc38274774\"></a>Your event supervisor reads you these instructions:\r\n\r\nThe 15,000-Meter Bike measures your level of aerobic fitness. On the command “Go,” the clock will start and you will begin pedaling at your own pace. You must complete the 15,000-meter distance in 25 minutes or less. You will be scored on your time. What are your questions about this event?\r\n\r\nThen, on the command of “Get set,” grab your handlebars and get ready for the “Go” command. Your time starts on the “Go” command, and your test timer calls out the time remaining every 30 seconds during the last two minutes of allowable time. You must cover 12,000 meters within 25 minutes.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Take some time to adjust the bike to your body before your event starts. You don’t want to stop during the test to tweak it because that cuts into your time.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Row</h2>\r\nIf you’re participating in the row event, your unit has to provide you with a stationary rowing machine. It must have mechanically adjustable resistance, and the seat, handles, and foot straps have to be adjustable, too. The rowing machine must be equipped with an odometer, and it has to be calibrated before the test.\r\n\r\nYou get a short warm-up period and some time to adjust the machine to your body size. <a name=\"_Toc38274775\"></a>Then, your event supervisor reads you these instructions:\r\n\r\nThe 5,000-Meter Row measures your level of aerobic fitness. On the command “Go,” the clock will start and you will begin rowing at your own pace. You must complete the 5,000-meter distance. You will be scored on your time. To pass, you must complete 5,000 meters in 25 minutes. What are your questions about this event?\r\n\r\nOn the command of “Get set,” position yourself comfortably. The clock begins when your grader says “Go.” Like the bike event, your grader calls out the remaining time every 30 seconds during the last two minutes of the test. You have 25 minutes to complete 5,000 meters.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Do a complete stroke each time you row. The rowing machine measures your distance, so don’t stop yourself shy—extend your arms all the way forward (until you’re almost touching the machine) and lean all the way back so that your body is almost parallel to the ground. Pull the handles to your chest, not your bellybutton.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Swim</h2>\r\nThe 1,000-Meter Swim is the third option available on the ACFT MOD. The swim event has to take place in a pool with a 25-meter lane and a minimum depth of 1 meter. This one requires a lot of personnel: You need an event supervisor, one scorer for every three soldiers, a timer and a backup timer, and support personnel who are there to ensure safety. The event supervisor can’t be a scorer, either.\r\n\r\nYou get a few minutes in the pool to acclimate and warm up before your event supervisor reads these instructions:\r\n\r\nThe 1,000-Meter Swim measures your level of aerobic fitness. You will begin in the water; no diving is allowed. At the start, your body must be in contact with the wall of the pool. On the command “Go,” the clock will start. You should then begin swimming at your own pace, using any stroke or combination of strokes you wish. You must swim [appropriate number based on lap length] laps to complete this distance. You must touch the wall of the pool at each end of the pool as you turn. Any type of turn is authorized. You must complete the 1,000-meter distance in 25 minutes. You will be scored on time. Walking on the bottom to recuperate is authorized. Swimming goggles, swim caps, and civilian swimming attire are permitted, but no other equipment is authorized. What are your questions about this event?\r\n\r\nWhen you hear the command “Get set,” you have to position yourself in the pool holding the wall, with your body in contact with the wall—that’s the start position for this event. On the command of “Go,” you can start swimming. You can use any stroke you want (including a combination of strokes). At the end of each 25-meter lap, you have to touch the pool’s wall as you turn around.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Pace yourself and work with your best strokes (the ones that allow you to cover the most distance with the least effort on your part). Your grader tells you how many laps you need to do to reach 1,000 meters and keeps track of how many you’ve done, but keeping track yourself is a good idea.</p>\r\nYou have 25 minutes to swim 1,000 meters, which in a 25-meter lane is 40 laps. Your scorer is supposed to watch you and count your laps, but counting them yourself doesn’t hurt. During the event, you can walk on the bottom of the pool to recuperate if you need to.\r\n\r\nYou don’t have to wear your Army Physical Fitness Uniform during this alternate event. You can wear civilian swimming attire (read: your favorite trunks or bathing suit), swimming goggles, and a swim cap if you want to. Just make sure you’re sporting something that would be appropriate for you to wear in front of your sergeant major.","description":"If you’re on a permanent profile, the new events on the Army Combat Fitness Test (<a href=\"//coursofppt.com/article/academics-the-arts/study-skills-test-prep/armed-services/acft-for-dummies-cheat-sheet-275393/\">ACFT</a>) don’t have to spell an end to your illustrious career.

You don’t want to stop during the test to tweak it because that cuts into your time.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Row</h2>\r\nIf you’re participating in the row event, your unit has to provide you with a stationary rowing machine. It must have mechanically adjustable resistance, and the seat, handles, and foot straps have to be adjustable, too. The rowing machine must be equipped with an odometer, and it has to be calibrated before the test.\r\n\r\nYou get a short warm-up period and some time to adjust the machine to your body size. <a name=\"_Toc38274775\"></a>Then, your event supervisor reads you these instructions:\r\n\r\nThe 5,000-Meter Row measures your level of aerobic fitness. On the command “Go,” the clock will start and you will begin rowing at your own pace. You must complete the 5,000-meter distance. You will be scored on your time. To pass, you must complete 5,000 meters in 25 minutes. What are your questions about this event?\r\n\r\nOn the command of “Get set,” position yourself comfortably. The clock begins when your grader says “Go.” Like the bike event, your grader calls out the remaining time every 30 seconds during the last two minutes of the test. You have 25 minutes to complete 5,000 meters.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Do a complete stroke each time you row. The rowing machine measures your distance, so don’t stop yourself shy—extend your arms all the way forward (until you’re almost touching the machine) and lean all the way back so that your body is almost parallel to the ground. Pull the handles to your chest, not your bellybutton.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Swim</h2>\r\nThe 1,000-Meter Swim is the third option available on the ACFT MOD. The swim event has to take place in a pool with a 25-meter lane and a minimum depth of 1 meter. This one requires a lot of personnel: You need an event supervisor, one scorer for every three soldiers, a timer and a backup timer, and support personnel who are there to ensure safety. The event supervisor can’t be a scorer, either.\r\n\r\nYou get a few minutes in the pool to acclimate and warm up before your event supervisor reads these instructions:\r\n\r\nThe 1,000-Meter Swim measures your level of aerobic fitness. You will begin in the water; no diving is allowed. At the start, your body must be in contact with the wall of the pool. On the command “Go,” the clock will start. You should then begin swimming at your own pace, using any stroke or combination of strokes you wish. You must swim [appropriate number based on lap length] laps to complete this distance. You must touch the wall of the pool at each end of the pool as you turn. Any type of turn is authorized. You must complete the 1,000-meter distance in 25 minutes. You will be scored on time. Walking on the bottom to recuperate is authorized. Swimming goggles, swim caps, and civilian swimming attire are permitted, but no other equipment is authorized. What are your questions about this event?\r\n\r\nWhen you hear the command “Get set,” you have to position yourself in the pool holding the wall, with your body in contact with the wall—that’s the start position for this event. On the command of “Go,” you can start swimming. You can use any stroke you want (including a combination of strokes). At the end of each 25-meter lap, you have to touch the pool’s wall as you turn around.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Pace yourself and work with your best strokes (the ones that allow you to cover the most distance with the least effort on your part). Your grader tells you how many laps you need to do to reach 1,000 meters and keeps track of how many you’ve done, but keeping track yourself is a good idea.</p>\r\nYou have 25 minutes to swim 1,000 meters, which in a 25-meter lane is 40 laps. Your scorer is supposed to watch you and count your laps, but counting them yourself doesn’t hurt. During the event, you can walk on the bottom of the pool to recuperate if you need to.\r\n\r\nYou don’t have to wear your Army Physical Fitness Uniform during this alternate event. You can wear civilian swimming attire (read: your favorite trunks or bathing suit), swimming goggles, and a swim cap if you want to. Just make sure you’re sporting something that would be appropriate for you to wear in front of your sergeant major.","blurb":"","authors":[],"primaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":33776,"title":"Armed Services","slug":"armed-services","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33776"}},"secondaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":0,"title":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"tertiaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":0,"title":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"trendingArticles":null,"inThisArticle":[{"label":"Bike","target":"#tab1"},{"label":"Row","target":"#tab2"},{"label":"Swim","target":"#tab3"}],"relatedArticles":{"fromBook":[],"fromCategory":[{"articleId":295645,"title":"What Is the ASVAB Test?","slug":"what-is-the-asvab-test","categoryList":["academics-the-arts","study-skills-test-prep","armed-services"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/295645"}},{"articleId":283798,"title":"Mastering the Science of Movement Training for the ACFT","slug":"mastering-the-science-of-movement-training-for-the-acft","categoryList":["academics-the-arts","study-skills-test-prep","armed-services"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/283798"}},{"articleId":283793,"title":"ACFT Event: Two-Mile Run","slug":"acft-event-two-mile-run","categoryList":["academics-the-arts","study-skills-test-prep","armed-services"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/283793"}},{"articleId":283786,"title":"ACFT Event: Leg Tuck","slug":"acft-event-leg-tuck","categoryList":["academics-the-arts","study-skills-test-prep","armed-services"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/283786"}},{"articleId":283778,"title":"ACFT Event: Sprint-Drag-Carry","slug":"acft-event-sprint-drag-carry","categoryList":["academics-the-arts","study-skills-test-prep","armed-services"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/283778"}}]},"hasRelatedBookFromSearch":false,"relatedBook":{"bookId":0,"slug":null,"isbn":null,"categoryList":null,"amazon":null,"image":null,"title":null,"testBankPinActivationLink":null,"bookOutOfPrint":false,"authorsInfo":null,"authors":null,"_links":null},"collections":[],"articleAds":{"footerAd":"<div class=\"du-ad-region row\" id=\"article_page_adhesion_ad\"><div class=\"du-ad-unit col-md-12\" data-slot-id=\"article_page_adhesion_ad\" data-refreshed=\"false\" \r\n data-target = \"[{&quot;key&quot;:&quot;cat&quot;,&quot;values&quot;:[&quot;academics-the-arts&quot;,&quot;study-skills-test-prep&quot;,&quot;armed-services&quot;]},{&quot;key&quot;:&quot;isbn&quot;,&quot;values&quot;:[null]}]\" id=\"du-slot-64da960ed7ed6\"></div></div>","rightAd":"<div class=\"du-ad-region row\" id=\"article_page_right_ad\"><div class=\"du-ad-unit col-md-12\" data-slot-id=\"article_page_right_ad\" data-refreshed=\"false\" \r\n data-target = \"[{&quot;key&quot;:&quot;cat&quot;,&quot;values&quot;:[&quot;academics-the-arts&quot;,&quot;study-skills-test-prep&quot;,&quot;armed-services&quot;]},{&quot;key&quot;:&quot;isbn&quot;,&quot;values&quot;:[null]}]\" id=\"du-slot-64da960ed8475\"></div></div>"},"articleType":{"articleType":"Articles","articleList":null,"content":null,"videoInfo":{"videoId":null,"name":null,"accountId":null,"playerId":null,"thumbnailUrl":null,"description":null,"uploadDate":null}},"sponsorship":{"sponsorshipPage":false,"backgroundImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"brandingLine":"","brandingLink":"","brandingLogo":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"sponsorAd":"","sponsorEbookTitle":"","sponsorEbookLink":"","sponsorEbookImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0}},"primaryLearningPath":"Advance","lifeExpectancy":"Six months","lifeExpectancySetFrom":"2024-08-14T00:00:00+00:00","dummiesForKids":"no","sponsoredContent":"no","adInfo":"","adPairKey":[]},"status":"publish","visibility":"public","articleId":283754},{"headers":{"creationTime":"2022-03-31T21:18:01+00:00","modifiedTime":"2024-08-14T18:01:19+00:00","timestamp":"2024-08-14T21:01:02+00:00"},"data":{"breadcrumbs":[{"name":"Academics & The Arts","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33662"},"slug":"academics-the-arts","categoryId":33662},{"name":"Study Skills & Test Prep","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33772"},"slug":"study-skills-test-prep","categoryId":33772},{"name":"Armed Services","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33776"},"slug":"armed-services","categoryId":33776}],"title":"Mastering the Science of Movement Training for the ACFT","strippedTitle":"mastering the science of movement training for the acft","slug":"mastering-the-science-of-movement-training-for-the-acft","canonicalUrl":"","浏览引挚改善调整":{"metaDescription":"Discover the differences between movement training and muscle training and where the ACFT events fall in the 4Q model's quadrants.","noIndex":0,"noFollow":0},"content":"If you walked into a gym right now, you’d most likely see rows of machines dedicated to training just one muscle at a time. Those are great for bodybuilders but not necessarily for the average soldier. Because most military occupational specialties (MOSs) have at least minimal physical demands, and because those demands require real-world movement, many of the machines at the gym are great supplements to your training. However, you definitely need movement training, too.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Distinguishing muscle training from movement training</h2>\r\nImproving athleticism, which is what the Army is really testing with the <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/article/academics-the-arts/study-skills-test-prep/armed-services/acft-for-dummies-cheat-sheet-275393/\">ACFT</a>, requires a combination of muscular and movement-based training. Movement training is unlike muscle training. It harnesses your natural human kinetics—the way you move—and makes your movements stronger, more stable, and safer.\r\n\r\nIn standard muscle training, you have to isolate a muscle (or a group of muscles) to focus all your work there. Your intent is to put force in just one region of your body, like your chest, while the rest of your body is stabilized and still, and your goal is to see just how much force you can send into that region and still execute a movement, such as a chest press. You don’t want to “cheat” by using momentum because that means other muscles are pitching in to help you execute the movement. That’s fine if that’s the type of training you’re doing.\r\n\r\nBut when you need motor skills you can use outside the gym, and if you need to be efficient with your movement (like you do on the ACFT and on the battlefield), you need your muscles to work together to accomplish a result. Whether you’re putting together a GP Medium or carrying one of your squad members to safety, your movement training kicks in. Movement training is about improving motor tasks that take you outside the linear plane. Movement training integrates your whole body.\r\n\r\nAnd with the ACFT, the Army is testing your ability to pull off complex movements—not just your ability to use your pecs and a few smaller muscles to push yourself off the ground. That means you have to cross-train, use three-dimensional movements and your planar movements, and use weight training to complement everything you’re doing if you want to perform well on the ACFT.\r\n\r\nThese 3D movements come with a wide range of other benefits, too, such as improved\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Aerobic capacity</li>\r\n \t<li>Coordination</li>\r\n \t<li>Joint health</li>\r\n \t<li>Resiliency in multidirectional movements outside the gym</li>\r\n \t<li>Tensile strength in your connective tissues</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tech\">The more momentum you can harness while controlling your form, the more efficiently you work. Your brain automatically wants to execute all your body’s movements in ways that are easiest to accomplish—but not necessarily in ways that prevent injury (think about the last time you did bicep curls and threw your back into them, or picked up a box from the floor without bending your legs).</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Planar movement</h2>\r\nWith physical training, you can do your work in one or more of the three planes of motion: the sagittal plane, the frontal plane, and the transverse plane.\r\n\r\nIf you’re working in the <em>sagittal plane</em><em>,</em> you’re moving two-dimensionally—up and down or back and forth. In the <em>frontal plane</em><em>,</em> you’re making side-to-side movements. Finally, in the <em>transverse plane</em><em>,</em> you’re using twisting or rotating movements. Work in any of these planes can be <em>unloaded</em><em>,</em> which means you have only your body weight, or <em>loaded</em><em>,</em> which means you’re using an external mass while moving. An external mass can be anything from a barbell loaded with weight to your Improved Outer Tactical Vest, or IOTV.\r\n\r\nMost exercises in the three planes of motion fall into one or more of four main categories:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Unloaded linear movements: </strong>Linear movements are in the sagittal plane or the frontal plane. You’re running, cycling, or performing some types of strength training. Linear exercises move only horizontally or vertically.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Unloaded 3D movements: </strong>Movements that cross over the borders between the sagittal, frontal, and transverse planes are 3D movements. Things like sports (tennis, football, baseball, and a number of others), dancing, and many types of martial arts use unloaded 3D movements.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Loaded linear movements: </strong>Loaded movements keep you in the sagittal or frontal plane and involve external weight. Running while carrying a litter, squatting with a bar on your back, and doing everyday bicep curls are loaded linear movements. The external weight can range from resistance bands and barbells to the flywheel of an adjustable stationary cycle or full battle rattle.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Loaded 3D movements: </strong>Working through different planes with an external weight means you’re doing loaded 3D movements. These movements, like agility drills, modified exercises (such as shoulder extensions with a trunk rotation), and lateral lunges with a plate reach involving rotation.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Strictly training in loaded linear movements can easily result in overuse injuries. Working in 3D allows other muscles, connective tissues, and joints to pitch in to complete a task, which “shares the load.”</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" ><a name=\"_Toc38280063\"></a>The 4Q model</h2>\r\nThe <em>4Q model</em> allows you to group exercises together by type: unloaded linear, unloaded 3D, loaded linear, and loaded 3D. (Check out the preceding section for more on these types of movements.) The figure shows the 4Q model, as well as some of the exercises that belong in each quadrant.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283799\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"556\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283799\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/acft-4q-model.jpg\" alt=\"The 4Q model.\" width=\"556\" height=\"471\" /> The 4Q model[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">Training in all four quadrants is essential for optimal results. If your goal is overall strength and endurance, you can’t leave one (or more) out.</p>\r\n\r\n<h3>Unloaded training</h3>\r\n<em>Unloaded training</em>—commonly called <em>body weight training</em>—refers to exercises like push-ups and pull-ups. Despite what you’ve heard, body weight training isn’t inherently easier than loaded training is. The Leg Tuck on the ACFT is a perfect illustration of that; it’s all body weight, but for many people, it’s one of the most difficult exercises to perform.\r\n<h3><a name=\"_Toc38280065\"></a>Loaded training</h3>\r\n<em>Loaded training</em> requires you to add external mass to movement. Any mass counts, whether it’s a 1-kilogram plate alone or a bar loaded with 400 pounds. How much mass you need to move to make gains and improve your fitness level depends on your current level of physical fitness. Your body will adapt to larger loads over time, provided that you use something that challenges you and forces a change in your muscles. When your body adapts to a certain amount of weight, it’s no longer going to force your muscles to adapt, so if you want to become stronger, you have to increase the mass of the loads you’re working with.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">Loaded movements are movements that involve an external mass that’s not part of your body. Running is an unloaded linear movement, while running while wearing your IOTV is a loaded linear movement. Throwing your rucksack over a wall is a loaded 3D movement, and climbing up the wall after it (if you’re not wearing your kit) is an unloaded linear movement. (If you’re wearing your kit, it becomes a loaded linear movement.) Going over the top of the wall to come down on the other side is a 3D movement; it’s unloaded or loaded depending on whether you’re wearing your kit.</p>\r\n\r\n<h3>Loaded multi-planar (3D) training for the ACFT</h3>\r\nLoaded multi-planar training is relatively new—at least in the gym. Classic strength training isolates muscles with the purpose of strengthening only those muscles, as evidenced by people hitting the gym for “chest day” or “cardio day.” (Everyone knows what happens when “leg day” isn’t part of a weekly routine.)\r\n\r\nBut loaded multi-planar movement falls into the upper-right quadrant in the 4Q model, and training there is absolutely essential for passing the ACFT. The bottom line is that functioning in and out of the Army requires the human body to move mass while in motion, and most of the time, you have to move that mass in a way that asymmetrically loads your body or puts it in a weird position. If you’re only training to carry something by using both biceps evenly at the same time, without any help from your back or legs, you’re not going to perform as efficiently or as safely as you would if you practiced loaded movement training that integrated your whole body.\r\n<h3><a name=\"_Toc38280066\"></a>ACFT events in the 4Q model</h3>\r\nThe table shows whether each of the ACFT events falls into the loaded linear or unloaded linear quadrant of the 4Q model. The test is mostly about linear movement, but training to perform well on the test requires you to work in all four quadrants. Each event gives the Army a good look at how you perform 3D movements, such as surmounting an obstacle or extracting a casualty from a vehicle, which are hard to grade. Some of the events require a combination of muscular strength and endurance plus cardiovascular endurance, such as the drag and carry shuttles of the Sprint-Drag-Carry.\r\n<table><caption><strong>ACFT Events in 4Q Quadrants</strong></caption>\r\n<tbody>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\"><strong>Loaded Linear Movement</strong></td>\r\n<td width=\"247\"><strong>Unloaded Linear Movement</strong></td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\">3 Repetition Maximum Deadlift (MDL)</td>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Hand Release Push-Up – Arm Extension (HRP)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Standing Power Throw (SPT)</td>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Sprint-Drag-Carry (SDC)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Sprint-Drag-Carry (SDC)</td>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Leg Tuck (LTK)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\"></td>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Two-Mile Run (2MR)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n</tbody>\r\n</table>\r\nNote that the Sprint-Drag-Carry falls under two quadrants: loaded linear movement and unloaded linear movement. That’s because this single event comprises four individual activities. The sprints and laterals are unloaded linear movements, while the drag and carry are loaded linear movements.","description":"If you walked into a gym right now, you’d most likely see rows of machines dedicated to training just one muscle at a time.

Some of the events require a combination of muscular strength and endurance plus cardiovascular endurance, such as the drag and carry shuttles of the Sprint-Drag-Carry.\r\n<table><caption><strong>ACFT Events in 4Q Quadrants</strong></caption>\r\n<tbody>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\"><strong>Loaded Linear Movement</strong></td>\r\n<td width=\"247\"><strong>Unloaded Linear Movement</strong></td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\">3 Repetition Maximum Deadlift (MDL)</td>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Hand Release Push-Up – Arm Extension (HRP)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Standing Power Throw (SPT)</td>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Sprint-Drag-Carry (SDC)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Sprint-Drag-Carry (SDC)</td>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Leg Tuck (LTK)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td width=\"247\"></td>\r\n<td width=\"247\">Two-Mile Run (2MR)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n</tbody>\r\n</table>\r\nNote that the Sprint-Drag-Carry falls under two quadrants: loaded linear movement and unloaded linear movement. That’s because this single event comprises four individual activities. The sprints and laterals are unloaded linear movements, while the drag and carry are loaded linear movements.","blurb":"","authors":[],"primaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":33776,"title":"Armed
