You're in the interior of Alaska. It's been -20 to -40 degrees for over a month, and there's finally a couple days of above zero degree weather. It's time to train. It's time to conduct a diagnostic ACFT but the weights and equipment that have been stored outside in a connex are frozen - literally. What do you do? Do you make excuses and walk away? Do you feel sorry for yourself and put forth less than your best effort? Fellow Soldiers and Arctic Warriors of 1/25 SBCT "Arctic Wolves" and Bassett Army Community Hospital Fort Wainwright in U.S. Army Alaska deal with this often. They find ways to get the job done, despite the extreme cold temperatures. Solution? Move the weights and equipment inside a heated hanger or appropriate space. Perform a dynamic warm-up and before you know it, those frozen bars and plates will be thawed out! Then, execute the training.
