      To play utterly-ignorant Devil's Advocate - could it be the 'march out of sync' that is used on bridges and such?

      Route step?

      It really has nothing to do with bridges.

      The guy at front doesn’t look the best either. He looks to have a few extra lbs.

      I thought I heard (on this site as a matter of fact) there is a march soldiers will use on a shaky bridge so there isn't the entire group hammering in sync as they go across. I'll reiterate, I'm speaking as an utterly ignorant voice on this, hence the use of question marks.

      I've never heard of such a thing. If a bridge is that shaky they wouldn't march across it in a big group. A route step, as donkey mentioned, is for long marches where its more important to just save your energy than to be in step with everybody else. Basically it means you're just walking along like you normally would.

      Its funny when you first see some people try to march. They get all stiff and forget which way their arms are supposed to swing, etc.

      You're talking about this, and they had to retrofit it with dampeners or something, but I don't think this is what they were doing... if i were being generous, i'd say it's a bizarre technique for masking now many and what kind of people were walking a path, but that would be highly generous of me... so i'll go with zambo... newbies.

      You're not crazy. Maybe folk lore but I have heard that, at least at some point in history, they had to avoid marching soldiers in lock step over bridges to avoid hitting the resonate frequency and bringing the bridge down.
