What does PRT stand for?
Physical Readiness Training
What does PRT prepare Soldiers and units for?
for the physical challenges of fulfilling the mission in the face of a wide range of threats, in complex operational environments, and with emerging technologies
Para 1-3 What is Physical readiness?
Physical readiness is the ability to meet the physical demands of any combat or duty position, accomplish the mission, and continue to fight
Para 1-4 Why is Physical readiness training a mandatory training requirement?
1. It is Considered by senior leaders to be essential to individual, unit, and force readiness
2. It is Required by law for all individuals and units
Para 1-5 Where do The tasks, conditions, and standards of PRT activities derive from?
The tasks, conditions, and standards of PRT activities derive from C-METL, D-METL and WTBDs
Para 1-5 What does C-METL stand for?
core mission essential task list
Para 1-5 What does D-METL stand for?
directed mission essential task list
Para 1-5 What does WTBDs stand for?

Para 1-6 What are the seven principles of training that PRT links to?
1. Commanders and Other Leaders are Responsible for Training
2. Noncommissioned Officers Train Individuals, Crews, and Small Teams
3. Train as You Will Fight
4. Train to Standard
5. Train to Sustain
6. Conduct Multi-echelon and Concurrent Training
7. Train to Develop Agile Leaders and Organizations
Para 1-7 Who’s program is the Physical readiness training program?
The Commander’s Program
Para 1-7 Who is essential to a successful PRT program and why?
Senior NCOs because they are often the most experienced trainers in the unit
Para 1-8 What nine things commanders must do to optimize the effect of PRT?
1. Incorporate mission command in PRT
2. Supervise the planning, preparation, execution, and assessment of PRT
3. Align PRT with mission/METL (mission-essential task list) requirements in support of full spectrum Operations
4. Train to standard according to FM 7-22
5. Assess individual and unit physical readiness according to FM 7-22
6. Provide resources required to execute PRT
7. Incorporate safety and composite risk management (CRM)
8. Ensure training is realistic and performance-oriented
9. Ensure training replicates the operational environment as closely as possible
Para 1-9 What do Noncommissioned officers serve as the primary trainers for?
enlisted Soldiers, crews, and small teams
Para 1-9 What are NCO’s three responsibilities to accomplish the PRT mission?
1. Identify specific tasks that PRT enhances in support of the unit’s C- or D-METL for individuals, crews and small teams
2. Prepare, rehearse, and execute PRT
3. Evaluate PRT and conduct AARs to provide feedback to the commander
Para 1-10 Who is responsible to train junior NCOs and aid in developing junior officers, ensuring mastery of PRT drills, exercise activities, and assessments?
Para 1-12 What is the Principle that All Army training is based on?
“Train as you will fight”
Para 1-13 What does the Toughening phase training provide?
provides foundational fitness and fundamental motor skills, which lay the foundation for all other activities in the sustaining phase
Para 1-14 What are the eight tenets of train as you will fight, as they relate to PRT?
1. PRT must support full spectrum operations and promote quick transitions between missions
2. PRT must support proficiency in combined arms operations and unified actions
3. PRT focus is on training the fundamentals first
4. PRT must be performance-oriented, conducted under realistic conditions, and mission focused
5. PRT should incorporate challenging, complex, ambiguous, and uncomfortable situations
6. PRT must incorporate safety and CRM
7. PRT must be conducted under conditions that replicate the operational environment
8. PRT must be conducted during deployments
Para 1-15 How should Army PRT be conducted?
Army PRT should be tough, realistic, and physically challenging, yet safe in its execution
Para 1-15 What is the Objective of PRT being tough, realistic, and physically challenging?
The objective is to develop Soldiers’ physical capabilities to perform their duty assignments and combat roles
Para 1-15 What are the fundamental skills that Physical readiness training activities include?
fundamental skills such as climbing, crawling, jumping, landing, and sprinting, because all contribute to success in the more complex skills of obstacle
negotiation, combatives, and military movement

Run fast under load, jump, bound, crawl, push, pull, squat, roll, stop, start, change direction, and get up/down
Table 1-2 What are the Physical requirements to perform WTBD task Evacuate a casualty?
Squat, lunge, flex/extend/rotate trunk, walk/run, lift, and carry
Para 1-17 What are the critical components of physical conditioning?
strength, endurance, and mobility
Table 1-3 What are the PRT Components that make up Strength?
Muscular Strength and Muscular Endurance
Table 1-3 What are the PRT Components that make up Endurance?
Anaerobic Endurance and Aerobic Endurance
Table 1-3 What are the eight PRT Components that make up Mobility?
