Abstract : Analyses of generic shipboard work tasks indicate that the majority of assigned duties involve heavy lifting, carrying, pushing, and pulling efforts. Findings of this investigation show that aerobic/circuit weight training elicited significantly higher scores than aerobic/calisthenic training for the majority of upper and lower torso muscular strength measures. These data suggest that a 15-minute circuit weight training regimen be considered to augment current Navy aerobic oriented physical conditioning programs for enhanced physical readiness. (Author)
