Benefits of Cadences

There is nothing better than a great military cadence! It’s a great feeling coming back from a long march, or morning run when a fellow soldier yells out a good cadence. It gives me energy, motivates, and increases unit espre de corps.

On top of the physiological effects that cadences produce, they also produce significant physical effects. Singing a cadence while running or marching helps soldiers keep their heads up, take deeper breathes and exhale more forcefully. This increases oxygen to the lungs and gives the body more energy. This in turn makes your unit more healthy and better prepared for the Army Physical Fitness Test.


The best part of a cadence is they can be modified to any command, any situation and any personality.
