    Hi everyone,

    I am a freshman in college getting ready to join the ROTC and I was wondering how bad it would look bad if I was to just barely pass the PU event in the APFT. I'm pretty sure I can ace the SU event and come close to acing the running event, but my PU event won't be stellar. If I work hard and get my scores up by the time I'm MS II and MS III will it be okay with the cadre?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just pass and get contracted, that is the goal at this point. Your cadre will help you get your fitness level up later. Pass and contract!

    Agree with everyone else. Also, buy a $20 doorway pull up bar, and install it in your bedroom doorway. Do pull ups every time you walk through. You will improve!

    DS just had a homework assignment MS I called a 'Development Plan'. The cadets were to make a quantitative goal for each monthly APFT test and specific things they would do in addition to daily PT with unit they would be doing and how often to reach that goal. Even if that is not a homework assignment for your unit it is a important part of being successful. Having a quantitative goal with specifics on how you will get there makes you more accountable. Run, push ups, sit ups and if possible work with a trainer letting them know your goals so they can help you build a regiment. Some exercises and weight training can be counter productive to running.
