Letter Re: Old Military Physical Fitness Manuals

JWR,
You were spot on with your comments regarding the improper stretching.  In fact, the U.S. Navy has recently made major changes to it's authorized workout routine because PT standards from just a year ago are now considered potentially harmful.  The new workout routine is as follows...The beginning of a workout involves "Dynamic warmups" instead of stretches to prevent injury.  Here's a link to the PDF on dynamic warmups.   The workout commences once the full-body dynamic stretches are complete.  "Static Stretching" is only done at the end of the workout.  Here's another link that highlights good and bad forms.
