S10Ep7 - Military Fitness Culture (The Military Series)

What does the lifetime fitness arc of service member look like? How can the military shifts its physical readiness training to better prepare for the demands of combat? Matt explores these topics with Colin Slade.

The first hurdle any service member must overcome is the basic requirements to enter: which include bodyweight & bodyfat, medical, and some basic physical fitness levels. Following entry, however, Colin discusses how the military really fails to develop its members fitness.

Readiness is key. Readiness is preparedness for combat--however that looks for the different services and the different jobs and roles and ranks in each service, including the unexpected. 

Even for members who sit at a computer--who can do their job without leaving the United States--physical fitness enables these people to do their job better mentally and prevent injuries from limiting time on the job. 

So, how do we change the culture? Individual service members certainly need to take ownership of their own physical preparedness, those around them, and--for leaders--those under their leadership and potentially command. 

At a larger level, the military needs to acknowledge it does not have the subject matter expertise, that the expertise is found outside the military, and that experts--such as the coaches of Barbell Logic--can provide better programming to prepare for combat and improve military readiness. 

The views expressed do not necessarily represent the Department of Defense or the United States Government.
