In this chapter you will learn about:
♦ Exercises to perform when space and equipment are limited.
♦ Designing a circuit training workout.
♦ Maintaining morale during deployment.
During deployment or extended training exercises you may encounter conditions that limit your physical training routines and options. Submarines and small assault craft probably create the greatest challenge, but a well balanced training program can be maintained even with limited space and equipment. So, take this opportunity to design new routines with alternative exercises and have fun. The concepts for designing training routines in confined spaces is the same as any gym-based routine, you just have to be more creative. Follow the FITT Principle guidelines outlined in Chapters 4, 5, and 7 and try some of the exercise in this chapter when designing your workouts.
