During the two-week sporting events, servicemen fulfilled the standards for three exercises that determine speed, strength and endurance, including running 100 m, 3 and 5 kilometers. The criteria were determined in accordance with the age group of the examiner, where each passed 3 exercises.

Also, exercises of military-applied skills were performed – throwing grenades, making a march in full gear and overcoming an obstacle course.

In particular, soldiers, sergeants and officers temporarily performed marches with weapons for 5 kilometers, practiced special complexes of army hand-to-hand combat with machine guns and bayonet knives.

The motivation of servicemen to improve their physical fitness is based on a specific system of material incentives. Servicemen who pass the physical training exam with excellent marks and above receive a bonus to their monetary allowance in the amount of 15 to 100 percent of their official salary.
