Management officers of the Ulyanovsk Separate Guards Airborne Assault Formation in the course of control exercises for the second quarter of this year successfully completed test exercises in physical and fire training.

As part of a physical training lesson, servicemen, led by the commander of the guard unit, Colonel Sergei Karasev, performed exercises for strength, speed, endurance and military-applied skills. The choice of exercises was provided in accordance with the age categories of the candidates. The most popular have traditionally been pull-ups on the bar and push-ups from the floor in a lying position. Also, the officers passed the lift with a coup and force exit on the crossbar, push-ups on the uneven bars, bench press of a 70-kilogram barbell from the chest in a prone position, snatch and jerk of a 24-kilogram kettlebell.

The guardsmen passed the shuttle race 10×10 m in the sports hall of the compound, where they demonstrated their strength capabilities. The 60, 100, 1000, 3000 and 5000 m race took place at the compound stadium.

Then, in the shooting range at the Polyvno training ground, the officers’ accuracy when firing from the AK-74M assault rifle and their weapon handling skills were tested.

Summing up the results of the control exercises, the commander of the formation noted the high level of training of the servicemen.
