The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of ROTC Army cadet exercise training for the Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT). A secondary purpose was to evaluate the effectiveness and perception of a remote training program. The cadets performed an 8-week training program that consisted of similar movements to the movements seen on the ACFT. Following 8 weeks, the cadets retested the ACFT. Performance measures were in-creased in the scores and scoring variable of the 3-repetition deadlift and 2-mile run (p < .005). The overall testing score also improved significantly. These results imply that an 8-week training program focusing on movements similar to those tested by the ACFT could improve ACFT score.
