and 150 meter run.
a. Concept of Operations
(1) Intent. Complete as many rounds of the exercises as possible in 20 minutes in a safe manner. This is a four-person-team "time-specific" 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 teams of four. Each team will require two 25mm ammo cans (70 lbs) and two pull-up bars. All teams will start at the same time. Each exercise must be completed before moving to the next one (all 10 thrusters must be finished before starting the pull-ups, and all pull-ups must be finished before starting the run). The soldiers can rest at any time during the workout. Each soldier has to complete as many rounds as he can in the 20 minutes. The total number of rounds for each team member will be added together to obtain the total score for the team. For example, if soldier A completes 12 rounds, soldier B 15 rounds, soldier C 13, and soldier D 9, the total score for the team would be 49. Spotting is not permitted at any time.
