Abstract : The primary objective of the SBPRRS is to recommend a physical readiness test or tests that accurately predict Soldier performance of Warrior tasks and battle drills (WTBDs). This report documents the key USAPHC activities and products completed during the 2012 2013 timeframe that were performed in support of the SBPRRS and the development of a new Army physical readiness test. Some materials prepared by other organizations (e.g., TRADOC)are included to provide relevant context. Other efforts conducted solely by collaborating organizations (e.g., TRADOC,USARIEM, or USUHS) are not included. For one of its SBPRRS tasks, the USAPHC has also published the associated Public Health Report ( PHR 12-02-0614) Correlations between Physical Fitness Tests and Performance of Military Tasks: A Systematic Review and Meta-analyses, June 2014, DTIC accession #ADA607688 (public release).
