The Top 10 Fitness Exercises for Military Soldiers
When you’re a soldier, being in shape isn’t a choice - it’s a requirement. You need to be someone your unit can depend on - it’s a matter of life or death. That’s why soldiers, in addition to police officers and firefighters, are considered tactical athletes. When your job puts lives on the line, you need to be fit.
This is an essential workout for any military personnel. Squats build your lower body strength. You can amp up your next set by adding a resistance band so you’re ready to lift heavy equipment or injured soldiers.
Start by standing on the middle of the resistance band.
Hold one end loop in each hand with your arms extended.
Roll up onto your toes, hold, then return to your starting position.
Make sure to keep tension in the band during the entire exercise.
Follow these exercises to improve your cardiovascular health and muscle strength. If this military workout routine leaves you with aching muscles, be prepared. Use Biofreeze to cool away the pain and target tight or sore muscles with the THERABAND Roller Massager+.
Put your at home army training to the test. Learn more about the new APCT (army physical combat test) or test your army fitness routine against the previous APFT (army physical fitness test) standards. Stay fit so you can protect yourself and your fellow soldiers.
