This may be a common sense question, but I've been reading through FM 7-22 and I can't get a definitive answer. When you conduct MMD 1 or 2, you do so in the extended rectangular formation, covered. But should soldiers stay on line for the duration of each exercise, or are they executed at your own pace?

PFC (Join to see), No. It is not explicitly stated one way or the other within the BCT POI or FM 7-22. However, the exercises contained within MMD1/2 are considered "individual tasks" which means they should be conducted at the Soldier's own pace. Often times within the IET environment, it's taught to be "online" in order to maintain control and allow DS's and AIT PSG's to observe for proper form. Those lessons are often carried back into line units as gospel when really it's just a method to control chaos for trainees.
