I recently took the Marine PFT for the Marine-Option NROTC Scholarship, and to put it bluntly I did terrible. 7 pullups, 65 crunches, 24:00 3 mile run. I have a few questions after completing the test. Most Importantly: Can we retake the PFT later in the summer to try and improve? If yes, clearly I would need to work VERY hard to improve. I found the Armstrong Pullup Program and I plan to begin that this week to increase my pullups, but I was wondering if anyone has tried the program, and if so, is it really as good as it claims? My thoughts for the run were to just run everyday, and also to start doing the runs in my boots, that way the 3 miles in sneakers would seem easier. Does anybody have any better idea for me to try? As for crunches, I don't know that there's any program or anything like that to improve, but my plan was to just do as many situps and other ab workouts as I can every day to improve. I'm sure that as I get into better shape this will likely improve a lot, but as with the run, does anybody have a better idea? If I cannot retake the test, then I guess I'm out of options for this year, but I'll continue training harder nonetheless.
