Chapter 11 – Physical Training During Initial Entry Training
Soldiers report to initial entry training (IET) ranging widely in their levels of physical fitness. Because of this, there are special considerations when designing a physical training program for IET soldiers. Physical training involves safely training and challenging all soldiers while improving their fitness level to meet required standards. The regulations which govern the conduct of physical training in IET and explain the graduation requirements are TRADOC Reg. 350-6 and AR 350-15.
The mission of physical training in IET is twofold: to safely train soldiers to meet the graduation requirements of each course and to prepare soldiers to meet the physical demands of their future assignments.
