Navy Physical Readiness Program (PRT) Update
Two new fitness events have been incorporated into the Navy Physical Readiness Program, which improves 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% 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 a Sailor's career.
A video that demonstrates the proper form and testing procedure for the forearm plank is at https://www.dvidshub.net/video/773312/us-navy-plank-cfl-acfl-training-official or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPVKhj3dudA&feature=youtu.be.
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.
The 2,000-meter row is a non-weight-bearing, low-impact exercise that reduces the impact on the legs. More importantly, rowing provides a full-body cardio workout engaging 80% of the body's muscle system. Also, the rower is space-saving fitness equipment and can be used on any Naval vessel or installation.

Physical Readiness Test
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
