I'm an incoming MIDN who is curious about how much I can expect my cadence pushup count, plank time, and 1.5 mile time to improve over PS (comparing the IPRT in to the PRT administered at the end of PS).
Hello, I'm a sophomore and the biggest part of the Application Process that I have trouble with is the mile run for the CFA. My current best mile is a 8:37, I'm aware that the average is about 6:30 and the max 5:20. Is it possible to shave off almost two minute off of my mile to hit the average...
I'm a senior in high school (18F) and am in the process of applying to the USCGA, all I have left is to get my letters of recommendation in and submit my PFE scores. I am planning on applying for regular admissions to give myself more time to improve my test scores over the next few months. My...
Hey all! I was just recently accepted into Westpoint and I have a more niche question for past and current cadets. How much time is there for voluntary workouts in a typical day? I love weightlifting and I would love to continue at Westpoint.
Hi, I am taking my fitness test for NROTC scholarship tomorrow and am concerned I have the wrong form. When on the website the fitness test instructions state I run a 1.5 mi. But the score sheet only has slot for 1mi. Am I looking at the right thing? Idk if it’s the correct sheet and which is...
I am a decently fit guy and I have trained a bit over the last few months (nothing crazy, but a few sets of push-ups and sit-ups each day and runs periodically). I have been working specifically to improve on the Air Force ROTC Physical Fitness Assessment. What is a standard or...
I'm a senior in high school and I took the AFROTC fitness test a few days ago. My scores were as follows:
42 - 1 min pushups
31 - 1 min sit-ups
13:39 - 1.5 mile time
Is this good? I'm done with trying the 1.5 mile but I'd love some pointers on how to get my 8:25 mile time to 7:30 within a month...
I am touring the AFA this week with my cousin. Can I checkout the Cadet Area Gym? I’d like to see as much as I can, and since I plan on doing competitive weight lifting, this would influence my decision.
I am an incoming freshman into a university on scholarship from NROTC. As August is approaching, I am physically preparing myself for the PFT, and am looking for the best way to do so.
The minimum required scores for me are:
Curl ups - 62
Push ups - 24
1.5 mile - 13 mins 30 secs
Hi, I will be entering AROTC this fall as a non-scholarship cadet. I'm trying to prepare for the fall; however, I cannot make a solid workout routine and end up doing sporadic and ineffective workouts. This is partially because I don't know how to tailor a workout to my needs and end up making...
I will be a freshman this fall in ROTC and I want to be prepared physically for all that will be required of me (not only the APFT). I did a mock APFT the other day and maxed both my sit-ups and push-ups, but I only scored like a 67ish on the 2-mile (obviously room for improvement). I've never...
I'm taking my Academy CFA on Thursday... does anyone have tips on how to prep? What to eat/drink? How to stretch or lightly work-out? Resting tips?
I'm kinda' late to getting it done, and I want to do well on it.
Long time no see SAF. I just recently started NROTC at my backup school and figured it would be a good idea to get accustomed to running in boots and pants. My question is: am I allowed to run in my NWU pants and my boots with a PT shirt, or would that be a uniform violation? I sent an email to...
I am a female junior that was offered a spot for week 2 of the West Point SLE. I have a couple questions on what the physical side of the program will be like. Thanks!
How intense the physical part of the program will be?
Is taking the CFA test there optional?
How much should I prepare for the...
Hey this is my first time here and I've seen the help people receive and I thought I could use some. I've received my nominations and completed all my stuff except for my CFA. Now I'm staring to dread this as I question my own physical fitness. I'm 5' 10 and weigh 210 lbs. Ona trial run myself I...
I am applying for a 4 year Army ROTC scholarship, and I recently took my Presidential Fitness Test. My scores were:
1 mile run: 5:10
1 min Pushups: 64
1 min sit ups: 70
Ive heard the fitness test is worth 150 points for the whole person score, is that true? If so, what are max scores?
Hey this is my first post on here, and I just wanted to let you all know a bit about my situation... I'm a rising high school senior who used to be obese and lost 75 pounds in order to get into better shape... however, after this weight loss, I had almost no strength whatsoever. I have been...
