Hi guys, how can I improve for the CFA? Do you think I can make it? I Will do the CFA in 3/4 months and this are my current scores:
Bball throw - 70 ft
Pullups - 7
Shuttle - 9
Sit-ups - 45
Push-ups - 30
1 mile - 10:40
I know it's not great but I started 1 week ago and I'm working hard 5 days a...
Hello! I'm new to the forums here, so please excuse me/let me know if I make any errors throughout this post. I took my first attempt at the CFA today, and my coach said that he can submit it if I'd like, or count it as a practice, because I had planned to also do it on Jan. 4th. I had assumed...
Four months ago, I took my CFA and everything went great and I did really well on it. I also paid strict attention to form, and filmed the videos exactly how I was supposed to. Once it was submitted, it was soon marked "Completed" in my file. Flash forward to now, mid december, and...
I only started looking at the West Point process in October. I had never really thought about it, but a school counselor recommended the school to me after hearing I was going into the Army. I have never been a physically fit individual. In middle school, I was clinically obese. I've made a lot...
I have recently received an LOA for USMA not too long ago, but still, something troubles me. So for context, I only have my statements, nomination, medical qualification, and CFA scores left on my application for me to input. The only part that I am slightly worried about is the CFA. I...
DS texted a photo of his MRE for the meal right before the CFA Sunday at this week's NASS session. He knew they have MRE at one meal as part of the NASS experience, but it seemed odd timing to do that right before CFA? We wondered if this was intentional "stress experience" because they had...
High School class of 2020 here,
So I got into USMA SLE 1st session over the summer, and got some worries about the CFA. I have started training this last week but am still hitting under-average scores on a few of the events, not by a lot but still below. I know at SLE they administer the CFA...
Hey! I took my CFA recently, and I'm worried about two of my scores. I had to do a flexed arm hang and could only stay up for 15 seconds, and my mile time was like 8:22. However, I hit the average for the basketball throw and push ups, and I maxed out sit ups. My shuttle run was a little slow...
So, I am about to take my CFA tomorrow, and it is late, but I was wondering if these stats would be enough for me to pass:
Basketball throw: 39 ft
Pull up: 1
Shuttle Run: 9.7
Sit ups: 83
Push ups: 45
1 mile run: 7:28
I already submitted my CFA scores about a week ago to the Academy but upon closer examination I'm a little nervous that they aren't as good as I thought they were... Basketball throw 35', Pullups 1, Shuttle run 10s, Sit ups 79, Pushups 35, mile run 6:12. I feel like other peoples scores were...
I just did my CFA today and I think I did pretty terrible (female BTW)... Is there anyway I could still get in?
BB Throw; 30 feet
Flexed Arm Hang; 9 seconds (awful, I know)
Shuttle Run; 10.5 seconds
Sit Ups; 53
Mile Run; 8:44
I've only been training for like 10 days (I...
I am a senior applying to multiple service academies and I just took my CFA last week, and I have a question regarding my performance.
Basketball Throw: 66 ft (max-102 goal-69)
Pullups: 17 (max-18 goal-12)
Shuttle Run: 7.8 sec (max-7.8...
Hello all! I am a rising senior (female) and I am working on filling out my application for USNA! I did attend NASS (session one) and it made me a little concerned about my cfa scores. Just for your information I did play soccer for 3 years, but no varsity letter, and ran track this year and...
As the title says, this thread is about just that! I'm struggling a little with the upper body portion (pull-ups and push ups) of the simulated CFA. Do any fitness gurus, previous/past mids, current mids, or anyone knowledgeable about physical fitness have any tips or workouts that...
