I love the PT one. At least the AF requires running now, not just the bike. :)

Running just plan sucks. Our sit up and push ups are harder.

I'm 32 and to get full point I had to do 51 push ups in 1 minute
and 52 situps in one minute.

The run 1.5 miles in 15 or less just to pass. And they have a waist messurement that is bs. If you have over a 30" waist you loose a lot of points, so you could be 5' 140 pouns and you get full points. But if your 6' and built you will lose points for being over 30's in your waist. And it taken above your hips and so it puts the tape across your belly button.

So you had better be able to run to make up the difference.

Here is what they use http://www.airforce-pt.com/male.html for the waist http://www.airforce-pt.com/abdominal-circumference.html

That actually seems pretty lax, from what it was in AFROTC in 2001. I failed my last PFT in 2001 due to the 2-mile run. I had knee surgery shortly after, and then deemed medically unfit. The wasit thin sucks though. Some folks are built like tanks, can do push-ups all day long, but due to bulk, can't run fast.

I used to work with an old army guy who would always tell me how much harder it was in the army, having to run and do PT EVERY morning!!!.....I'd tell him he didn't know what tough is.....try drinkin', smokin' and whorin' for a year then having to get up at the crack of dawn and run a mile and half under 13 minutes......THATS TOUGH!!!!!

Starting Jan 1st all AFSC's in the USAF will test twice per year. Waist measurment has gone up since so many people were *****ing about it.

For me to get 100% I need: sub 9:36 1.5mile, 62+pushups and 62+ situps in a minute, and measure less than a 32" waist.

Before I retired they had the ergocycle and people who smoked and never exercised passed with flying colors, and the folks who were athletic and in shape were failing. It was a joke!

it's been over 10 years since i was discharged from the army.... you had 2 minutes to do as many push-ups as you could, 2 minutes to do as many sit-ups as you could, then you had to run 2 miles.

depending on age you had minimums to meet to pass and a certain number to max it out. 100pts per even.

i think for my age bracket it was 94 push-ups, 84 sit-ups and 12 minutes for the 2 miles.

if the army teaches you nothing else - it's how to binge drink and chain smoke.

even with as much as i was drinking and smoking, i could still do about 80 pushups in 2 min, about 70 sit ups in 2 min and i could run 2 miles in 12:30...

oh, to be 20 again :D

It is in the army....
we stiil have 2 min for push ups 2min for sit ups and then a 2 mile run, at almost 30yrs old I have to do my 2 mile under 17min to pass but I'm not sure what it is for a 100% as I hate running more and more each time I have to do it and am just happy to pass it
