28 of September. Currently, more than 500 West Federal District officers exam on physical preparation. For several years, such a test is required for all captains - up to the generals.
Gone are the days when generals would sit in his office, shaking his flabby muscles and big bellies. The new reality is: the military, who have forgotten about the sport (generals and admirals are no exception) faces a sentence - up to and including dismissal. Physical training officers from nominally mandatory turned into actual binding and stood on a par with professional training.
Until recently, the professional quality of the military were evaluated according to the traditional scale. Young officer pulled up 14 times - "Five", never - "unsatisfactory".
However, this system in the Ministry of Defence has been recognized too simplified, and the 100-point system was introduced. Overall physical fitness is now the sum of the scores obtained for 4 - 5 exercises in certain types of physical training.
For example, if we talk about the power components are:
- flexion-extension of the trunk;
- flexion-extension arms lying in the palm;
- lift coup.
If we talk about race, it's:
- a distance of 60 meters;
- distance of 100 meters;
- shuttle sprints;
- cross on the 1 and 3 kilometers;
- forced marches;
- swimming, etc.
According to the current evaluation method to get the mark "excellent", the soldier must score 60 to 100 points. To mark a "good" - at least 60 points for the "satisfactory" - at least 35 points. When calculating the results taken into account the age of the soldier.
In practice, to pass the physical training, for example, 48-year-old colonel, you need to exercise each earn at least 16 points. That is, on the crossbar to perform at least 3 or 5 pull-ups ups with the coup, 20 push-ups and run 1 kilometer in 3.5 minutes.
Total Defense Ministry identified more than 60 different exercises, servicemen have the right to choose the exercises. For example, if it runs perfectly, but slightly tightened on the bar, it may lack of "power" points to easily offset the cinder track or, for example, melee combat, or cross-country skiing or a march-throw. The main thing that a soldier has exceeded the lower bar rating scale.
The Armed Forces also practice exercise complex - with a simultaneous test of endurance, accuracy and strength - for each specialty with the simulation of the conditions with which the soldier may face in a real fight. The purpose of this work is to prepare the soldiers and officers in the implementation of standards for combat training.
According to the order of the Ministry of Defence, military personnel who received on checking for physical training "unsatisfactory" shall be punished ruble. They are given 6 months to improve athletic training. If after the allotted time, a soldier does not hand over the norm, at least, to "three", it can be fired from the army with the words "failure to comply with conditions of the contract."
But the officers who have received "excellent" physical training is obtained within 1 year of monthly allowance - up to 100% of the base salary.
It should be noted that the example of the excellent physical preparation shows subordinates himself and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his deputies Dmitry Bulgakov, Valery Gerasimov, Yury Sadovenko and other assistants head of the military department. They are energetic, smart and play sports. For example, Shoigu plays hockey.
Next to these officers shake the belly does not. He wants or does not want a general, but losing weight is necessary.
