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 aerobiccircuit weight training elicited significantly higher scores than aerobiccalisthenic 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
