Abstract
Musculoskeletal injuries reduce the ability for military forces to train new personnel. Metabolic fitness has been used to predict injury risk in new Australian Army trainees. The purpose of the present study was to examine the validity of using metabolic fitness to determine injury risk in conditioned military trainees completing an arduous field training exercise.
