    With two weeks to go now until ROTC starts, I have self administered the APFT three times and every time, my sit up numbers are not where I would like them to be. I am hitting 57 in the two minutes, which I know is passing but I would like a larger safety margin. Does anyone have any advice to improve core endurance?

    I am absolutely no expert, but this is just my personal experience (I can do more than 100 in 2 mins). You can find core workouts simply by searching google. These usually include flutter kicks, reverse crunches, Russian twists, etc. I believe that in order to improve in sit-ups, you must work and strengthen all parts of your core. Planks/side planks are also a great way. Hope this helped!

    Make sure you have steady breathing and a good pace.. Practice that over and over

    The is a workout called "how to crush the APFT" and I've increased my numbers with it. Also take strategic breaks. Good luck

    Relax your muscles on the way down. And don't stress. You just need to pass this one.
