I am sick and tired of seeing soldiers not reach their fitness potential because of poor fitness training.

I don’t know much about PT, but this whole article strikes me as worth reading: “I am sick and tired of seeing soldiers not reach their fitness potential because of poor fitness training. It is a problem that starts at the very top. There is absolutely no reason why the Army of the most powerful country in the world, with all of its vast resources, should not be able to fix this.”
