    FORT EUSTIS, Va.—The ink has dried on the Army’s updated physical fitness doctrine, which now includes a portion on holistic health that aims to prevent injuries, increase Soldier lethality and be an essential component of individual readiness.
    Holistic Health and Fitness, or H2F, was published at the beginning of October into Army Field Manual 7-22, which covers the force’s doctrine on physical readiness training, said Maj. Gen. Lonnie G. Hibbard, commander of the U.S. Army Center for Initial Military Training.
    As H2F takes its place in Army doctrine, Hibbard hopes to hit the ground running into fiscal year 2021, especially as the Army Combat Fitness Test, or ACFT, now becomes the fitness test of record. Read More
