Deja Vu, eh?
Prior to entry into the army, you will undergo a comprehensive medical examination. A very small part of the military is involved in the types of extreme physical activity you often see. You can easily serve in the mifkadah, or base command of a combat unit, even in a forward poistion.
So you could still find yourself serving on guard duty, delivering equipment to forward positions.
I guess the question that comes to mind is how would you do standing at a check point for 8 hours wearing a 26 pound ceramic vest and helmet, belt with 8 clips and an M16?
But, the key to Mahal is service to Israel, and if that is the ultimate goal, you will be very fulfilled. Attitude is the key, often more important than physical prowess. The army will simply try to avoid putting you into a situation where you could seriously hurt yourself or endanger others who would be forced to take care of you.
