Note: It is highly recommended that exercises for both leg abductors (i.e., muscles that carry leg away from body) and leg adductors (i.e. muscles that bring leg toward body) be added to the special operations PT program. No exercises that effectively exercise these muscle groups are currently used in team PT sessions.
Lie on side: bend legs at a 90'- angle from torso. Lift and lower top leg. Knee and ankle should always be in the same plane. Weights can be added to legs if more resistance is needed. Variation 1: 4-count exercise: on count 1 lift leg; on count 2 extend leg while elevated. Count 3: bend leg and return to count 1 position. Count 4: return leg to starting position.

Eating foods that are just horrible, denying yourself foods you truly love and enjoy. Exercising, even though you absolutely hate exercising, and end up stiff as a board with no results.
