Recruiter-Led Physical Training Program

1. Purpose. The purpose of the Recruiter-Led Physical Fitness Program (RPFP) is to motivate applicants to participate in a physical conditioning program that emphasizes total fitness, to include aerobic conditioning, muscular fitness training, and healthy eating. The RPFP provides a baseline for Air Force recruiters to help Air Force applicants prepare for Basic Military Training (BMT) or Officer Training School (OTS). AF PT with recruits also allows recruiters to begin developing applicant adherence to standards and discipline, fosters camaraderie, and allows recruiters to use sessions to expand their applicant pool through buddy referrals.

2. Physical Training Guidelines. Any variation or deviation from this policy, which results in increased risk of injury or loss of life, may result in disciplinary action being taken. This guidance is not intended to conflict with any Special Operations/Combat Support programs. AFRS squadron Commanders will determine frequency for recruiter-led PT sessions.

Interesting document particularly those exercising and stretching high risk movements identified as: Things to avoid while stretching, Head/neck circles, Forcing movements/positions, and Contraindicated/High-Risk Exercises.

OMG, Dev and Indoc courses are off the chart high risk. eek
