The purpose of the Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) Training Guide is to provide exercises that will help Soldiers successfully prepare to take the ACFT. These specific exercises will help develop strength, endurance, and mobility using common strength training methods and Army doctrine.

The Army’s current Physical Readiness Training doctrine, Field Manual 7-22 (October 2012), can assist with more extensive workout information. Refer to Preparation Drill (PD), Hip Stability Drill (HSD), Shoulder Stability Drill (SSD), Four for the Core (4C), and Military Movement Drills (MMDs) for warm-up exercises and Recovery Drill (RD) in FM 7-22 for cool-down exercises. A copy of FM 7-22 can be found at

The exercises and drills in this guide can be conducted anywhere and are not resource intensive. When time or environmental constraints limit PRT sessions, this guide will provide potential modifications to individual and collective training.
