US Army Fitness Test

Are you fit enough to join the US Army?

US Army Fitness Test

Soldiers are required to take this Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) twice a year and there are 3 components to it.

Push-ups

Number of pushs in 2 minutes

Situps

Number of sit ups in 2 minutes

2 mile or 3.2km run

Time taken to run the distance

The tests have to be completed in that order with no more than 20mins of rest between each event.
For each event, a score is awarded and soldiers are required to score a minimum of 60 for each event.

The score charts can be found at http://www.usarec.army.mil/hq/apa/rc/apft.htm

So how do you rank?
