Skipping Leg Day

The Australian Army is a boxer. He trains hard and looks impressive. He is presented to the crowd in a ring, in his weight class, against a near peer. The ring is one large 'white box'. The Australian Army could not fight in a street fight. He lacks the speed and agility to keep up with his allies and the cardio to manoeuvre. The Australian Army skips leg day.
