1. SITUATION. No Change.
2. MISSION "PATRICIA": Total per 8-person squad-- 1.5 km run (per soldier), 200 burpee pull- ups, 400 jumping ring dips, 40 rope climbs, and 1 min L-sit (per soldier).
a. Concept of Operations.
(1) Intent. Complete all the exercises as quickly as possible in a safe manner. This is an eight-person-squad "task-specific" workout. The squad's time ends when the last member of the squad 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. The platoon will be divided into as many teams of eight as possible. Each squad will require pull-up bars, a 15-foot climbing rope, rings (austere or regular), and P-bars (parallel bars, dip station, or parallettes). All squads will start at the same time. Each squad has to complete the total number of reps per exercise.
