    Hello

    I was wondering how they convert your results from the CFT into points? I did a practice test the other day and want to know how well I did and where I could do better.

    Mile: 5:37
    Pull-ups: 11
    Push-Ups: 52
    Sit-ups: 67
    Shuttle Run: 9.2 sec.
    Basketball Throw: 59ft

    Thanks guys

    And in the correct order.

    When placing the 1 mile run last as instructed, rarely will you come close to a personal best.

    The cumulative effects of the test (fatigue) is a factor in the total test score.

    Sorry, I put them in the wrong order. I really did them just like the Candidate Fitness Assessment Instructions requires: Basketball Throw, Cadence Pull-ups, Shuttle Run, Modified Sit-ups, Push-ups, and the mile last. I have been in Track and XC for 3 years and I am a pretty good runner (ran the mile at 7000ft also). My upper body strength is not very good though. I really need to work on pretty much everything but the mile.

    Thanks guys

    Haha you have the total opposite problem I have. I a good upper body and a good core and can do that stuff but my endurance really needs to be worked on.

    I have lived and trained at high altitude for 6 years, but neglected to do much but run and now I am wishing that I would have worked on more than just running. I always thought that the extra muscle mass would slow down my mile and 5K times.

    How do you get that, are there point values assigned to each section? I am assuming that the max score is 500?

    Max is 500.

    5:30 mile =100
    95 sit-ups = 100
    72(ish) push-ups = 100
    18 pull-ups = 100
    shuttle is something like 8s for 100 I believe.
