For your consideration: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The army's new approach to fitness appears pretty sound, but it's making most of my mornings really annoying because they took perfectly good exercises, like exploding star jumps, three point push-ups, etc and gave them stupid new names, insisted they have to be performed in very specific sequences (that are far too long to memorize and completely arbitrary), and involve coming to the position of attention between each exercise... hassling you about whether your palms are oriented this way or that way... a bunch of really really dumb stuff.

But from the outside looking in, if you do some of these exercises a little more casually maybe you'll enjoy them and get something out of it.

Anyway... I really personally want to throw the guy who designed this stuff -- in this particularly anal retentive way -- off a rooftop. Army exercise has zero fun left in it.

Example...

They have precise and specific instructions for HOW TO LAY DOWN. #$@&^&&^$$%^#$^&^&!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, this is the more useful stuff... if, like I said, you disregard the depressing "necessity" of angling your hands in precisely the correct way before you jump up and stuff like that:

The exercises are okay and designed to prevent injury.

I'm just really frustrated with how explicit the instructions are. Instead of worrying about exercising as we try to implement this we're worrying about whether or not some stupidly detailed procedure was followed precisely to the letter and in perfect sequential order... and I already automatically feel extremely pissed off when stuff is done "by the numbers" in the first place... (STARTING POSITION... MOVE. IN CADENCE... EXERCISE... 1... 2... 3... 1... 2... 3...) Bah.

But, anyway, like I said the exercises are okay. Exploding star jumps, 8-count pushups, animal crawls, and shoulder rolls are especially good ones and easy to do with no equipment.

Here... there are hilariously robotic demonstrations on YT, as well.

Sadly I actually have to learn this stuff. Sad

Thanks for posting! My own exercises have gone to the wayside. I need to do more.
