I Took The US Army Fitness Test Without Practice
I took the US Army Fitness Test without practice
Today I’m gonna attempt the US army physical fitness test. I’m British but the reason why I’m trying the US one is because the British one needs specialist equipment which I cannot get hold of right now. The US one you don’t need any equipment.
I haven’t been training for this. Haven’t been doing my sit-ups and press-ups. What I have been doing is my normal training so we’ll see if that has paid off when it comes to doing an actual physical fitness test such as an army workout routine.
Components of the US Army Workout Challenge
The US Army physical fitness tests comprises of:
- sit-ups, and
- a two-mile run.
I’m actually most nervous about the push-ups I don’t know why I just I’m nervous I get nervous before any event I’ve been watching up on it all week because I want to make sure I get the technique right you know. I feel like some of you guys will be watching with a Hawk eye. So I’ve been watching all the technical stuff, all the rest periods, what counts what doesn’t count on this military workout routine without weights and how to rest between each test.
I want to be lean and be as strict as possible. If I do well and people like it I would like to attempt the US marine physical fitness test which is different and I kind of feel more intimidated by it.
So the requirements and this is to my age range of 22 to 26.
- I need to get a minimum of 17 press-ups in two minutes.
- I need to get a minimum of 50 sit-ups in two minutes.
- I need to get a minimum of 19.36 minutes per two mile run. That’s my minimum.
If I fail any of them then it’s a fail so I have to get those minimums in order to pass. And also the minimum rest time between each event is ten minutes and then 20 minutes is the maximum rest time. If I don’t get the minimums with my technique, it’s a fail. If I get the wrong rest times, it’s a fail.
So I’m gonna do a little bit of warming up now, and get going.
If you want to try the US military workout, give it ago and let us know how it went in the comments at the end of this article.
