Physical Fitness Programs: US Army Basic and Advanced Individual Training (1967)

thefilmarchive.org United States Army Basic Training (also known as Initial Entry Training or IET) is the program of physical and mental training required in order for an individual to become a soldier in the United States Army, United States Army Reserve, or Army National Guard. It is carried out at several different Army posts around the United States. Basic Training is designed to be highly intense and challenging. The challenge comes as much from the difficulty of physical training as it does from the required quick psychological adjustment to an unfamiliar way of life. Basic Training is divided into two parts: Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training. Basic Combat Training (BCT) consists of the first ten weeks of the total Basic Training period, and is identical for all Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard recruits. This is where individuals learn about the fundamentals of being a soldier, from combat techniques to the proper way to address a superior. BCT is also where individuals undergo rigorous physical training to prepare their bodies for the eventual physical strain of combat. One of the most difficult and essential lessons learned in BCT is self-discipline, as it introduces prospective soldiers to a strict daily schedule that entails many duties and high expectations for which most civilians are not immediately ready. Advanced Individual Training (AIT) consists of the remainder of the total Basic Training period, and is where recruits

From the supplier: Aquatic exercise programs are ideal for senior adults, particularly those with health problems. These programs offer elderly participants a way to engage in stimulating workouts while indulging in the pleasurable feeling of weightlessness. Aquatic exercises are usually conducted in the shallow end of a swimming pool and can be tailored to the needs of both swimmers and nonswimmers. They are ideal for therapeutic conditioning of the heart and lungs and also help to strengthen major muscle groups. More importantly, they promote self-esteem within a context of close social interaction.

Healthy Aging: A Lifelong Guide to Your Physical and Spiritual Well-Being

Healthy Aging: A Lifelong Guide to Your Physical and Spiritual Well-Being

In each of his widely acclaimed, best-selling books, Dr. Andrew Weil has been an authoritative and companionable guide through a uniquely effective combination of traditional and nontraditional approaches to health and healthy living. Now he gives us a book about aging that is unlike any other. Drawing on the new science of biogerontology (the biology of aging) as well as on the secrets of healthy longevity — diet, activity and attitude — Dr. Weil explains that there are a myriad of things we can do to keep our bodies and minds in good working order through all phases of life. Hugely informative, practical, and uplifting, Healthy Aging is infused with the engaging candor and common sense that have made Dr. Weil our most trusted source on healthy living.

With detailed information on:

-Learning to eat right: Following the anti-inflammatory diet, Dr. Weil’s guide to the nutritional components of a healthy lifestyle

-Separating myth from fact about the would-be elixirs of life extension — herbs, hormones, and anti-aging “medicines”

-Learning exercise, breathing and stress-management techniques to benefit your mind and body

-Understanding the science behind the aging process

-Keeping record of your life lessons to share with loved ones Dr. Weil has raised dispensing health advice to an art form. Instead of making his audience feel inadequate or guilty about bad habits, he seems to subconsciously convince readers to do better merely by presenting health facts in a non-threatening way. Healthy Aging is his most scientifically technical book yet (you’ll learn all about enzymes like telomerase and cell division and the chemistry behind phytonutrients like indole-3-carbinol, and the connection between cancer and other degenerative diseases like diabetes) yet by far his most fascinating.

His main mission here is to recommend “aging gracefully,” which he considers accepting the process instead of fighting it. As the director of the country’s leading integrative-medicine clinic (combining the best of traditional and alternative worlds), of course he disses Botox and the slew of 0-a-jar face creams out there. It’s also no surprise that he focuses on proper nutrition, moderate exercise, and meditation and rest among his “12-point program for healthy aging.” (Triathletes and exercise addicts should take special note of the research linking excessive exercise and ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.) He occasionally references his earlier works, including 8 Weeks to Optimum Health. But the most eye-opening sections are those that discuss the spirituality of aging and its emotional aspects. “Aging can bring frailty and suffering, but it can also bring depth and richness of experience, complexity of being, serenity, wisdom, and its own kind of power and grace,” he writes. At 63, Weil is still a bit shy of senior status, but is aging well indeed, with the legacy of his late 93-year-old mother (who’s touchingly eulogized by Weil in this book) to guide him.–Erica Jorgensen
