I have vowed to get this on our training schedule for physical training for one day.  It is always good to shake things up a little and while this is a drill of the U.S. Marine Corps Combat Fitness Test, it looks like a great full body workout for PT.  The information below is from Marine Corps Order 6100.13 with change 1, dated 01 August, 2008 (Subject: Marine Corps Physical Fitness Program). You can download the MCO at the end of this article.

Don’t worry, there is a brief video that shows the MANUF from the CFT below.

Maneuver Under Fire (MANUF)

References to additional information such as “tables 3-2″ can be found in the PDF which is linked below

(1) The MANUF is a timed event to be conducted outdoors. The MANUF course should be constructed on a smooth and level grass surface, preferably a football or soccer field. Prior to the conduct of this event, the CCI/CPTR will ensure the running surface is free from hazards or debris that can cause injury to participants.

(2) The MANUF is a 300 yard shuttle run that includes a variety of combat-related tasks, to include crawls, buddy drags/carries, ammunition resupply, grenade throw and agility running. See Tables 3-1 and 3-2 for MANUF layout. Read more
