Hello all, I am new to this forum. Hoping to be apart of the USAFA Class of 2020. I was told that the CFA is very tiring so I decided to try it out. I did this test at the gym and I tried doing all 6 events according to what the CFA instructions said. Here is what I got. Basketball Throw: Attempt 1: 26 ft Attempt 2: 27 ft (Guys in the gym did not want to share their basketball so I used a 4 pound medicine ball... lol) Pull ups: 13 Shuttle run: Attempt 1: 1o seconds Attempt 2: 11 seconds Sit ups: 75 (Didn't have a partner so I put a 45 pound plate on top of my feet). Push ups: 76 (max) Mile run: 9:10 (treadmill) My thoughts on doing the CFA for the first time unofficially: Now I am going to admit, I was very exhausted before running the mile. Right after the pushups I kinda lost my hearing and then I got it back. I know 9:10 is very slow compared to 6:40 mean time. But I ran the mile in the treadmill so I am pretty sure it is not accurate. Normally I run a 6:30 mile in the track. Anyways I pretty much fell off the treadmill after the mile but I eventually finished it and gave it all I got. Does any one have any tips on recovering quickly before running the mile? So far I understand how the CFA works and I want to be ready for it once I start taking it for real. I need to improve both runs, pull-ups, try to max on sit-ups, and basketball throw. Any tips on improving the score on these events? Thank you and Congrats to all Class of 2019 appointees!
