NAVY PHYSICAL READINESS PROGRAM UPDATE
Two new fitness events – the forearm plank and 2,000-meter row – have been incorporated into the Navy Physical Readiness Program, which improve the physical readiness of Sailors in alignment with the Culture of Excellence.
The forearm plank will replace curl-ups as the abdominal muscular endurance assessment. The forearm plank is a functional exercise required in 85 percent of shipboard tasks involving pushing, pulling, lifting and carrying. Training for the forearm plank strengthens the core, improves posture and reduces the risk of sustaining lower-back injuries throughout the career of a Sailor.
A 2,000-meter row on the Concept-2 Rower serves as another alternate cardio option in addition to the 12-minute stationary bike, 500-yard/450-meter swim and 1.5-mile treadmill run.
Physical Readiness Test (PRT)
Service Members medically cleared for the Navy Physical Fitness Assessment will participate in the Body Composition Assessment and Physical Readiness Test (PRT). The new PRT event sequence is:
- Forearm plank
- Cardio or alternate cardio option
