Task Organization: Annex A
1. SITUATION. No Change.
"CARLA": 5 Rounds for time: Run 400m / 30 deadlifts / 30 sit-ups
a. Concept of Operations.
(1) Intent. Complete five rounds of the exercises as quickly as possible in a
safe manner. This is a four-person team "task-specific" workout. The team's
time ends when the last member of the team completes the workout. The
purpose of this workout is to develop cohesion and combat fitness under
fatigue conditions through shared hardship, challenges, and competition.
(2) Scheme of maneuver. Each squad will be divided into two teams of four
or five. Each team will have two .50-cal ammo cans (50 pounds each) per
soldier. This is the preferred equipment ratio. However, the minimum
requirement would be four .50-cal ammo cans per four-person team. All
the teams will start at the same time from the same location.
