Iranian state television IRIB showed footage of the soldiers carrying out the exercises in the province of Yazd.
The IRGC naval forces held 10 days of exercises in the Gulf earlier in January, which came after days after President Barack Obama approved sanctions aimed at stopping countries buying Iranian oil.
The drills, called Val Fajr, included shooting and artillery practice.
Mohammad Pakpour, commander of the ground forces said the drills were part of annual exercises designed to increase the preparedness of military units.
