PFT thread....
 
I thought this might be an interesting thread, even if I am the only one ever posting in it.

The rules are fairly simple, run a PFT and post your times. No one cares which service's PFT you run, or which version (perhaps since you got out, it was changed). No one cares if you are old or young, AD or prior service.

Just run a PFT and post your score.

I'll start. Today I ran a circa 1985 USMC PFT. I thought it would be a good way to see how I did after several days of being sick. And on a hot day. My idiocy knows no bounds.

20 pullups
52 situps
27 min 15 sec 3 mile run

Even though I can't find a scoring chart from that era (everyone uses crunches, today), I think the only time I've ever run a worse PFT was the week after RS.

I'm now accepting PayPal donations for gas so I can kill myself with carbon monoxide....

For the above PFT, I was PM'd a scoring table from that era, which shows I ran a 196.

Especially after consideration of this new info, I've found an old rubber hose to tape to my exhaust and run to the interior of my SUV, to avoid having to lay directly under it to get enough to do the job....

RigdUP 18 May 2011 21:01

I like this. I'll run one by the end of the week.

I have a unit one coming up in June. I'll post my score, but only if everyone promises to flip me great deals of crap for being old and very out of shape.

259. Run hurt me.

78 Pushups
82 situps
17:06 2 mile

I'm very ashamed of my 2 mile time. Haven't been running much lately...

I'd like to add, as a piss-poor excuse, that I had drill this weekend, and I'm still recovering.

:biggrin:

Will you accept a Quarterly Fitness Assessment from OGA? I have one coming up next week. Here is my last one:

12 pull ups
60 push ups
62 sit ups
10:42 mile and a half run

Sure, but I think it may be so unusual for readers, that they might not know how to compare it. If you have a score card, or table, or at least know the score (ie, 245 out of a possible 300), that would be pretty cool....

20 pullups is pretty damn good...

It is possibly the only reason that I haven't jumped off the top of my corporate offices. Well, that and the reality that I'm pretty fearful of pain and death....

With that kind of PFT, can you get out onto the ledge? :biggrin:

I'm kidding, I fucking wish I could do that many pull ups. I think the most I've ever done was 17 and that was last year. Most I ever did on active duty was 16, they were always my weak spot. I'm doing 13-14 over hand at the end of my workouts these days, and I'm heavier than normal.

I'll run one in June. It won't be impressive at all.

Same here. I think I averaged around 14 my whole time and got 17 once. Always ran in the 18's though. I guess those are the breaks when your tall and wormy.

I am going to run one time in the next couple days.

The sad thing is setting a personal record in my 30s just drives home the point that I should have worked harder on them as a kid.

Trig 19 May 2011 00:35

Can we "kip?" :biggrin: I havent ran a PFT in 12 years. I hope this thread will inspire me to do so. Fastest time while I was in was high 19's,...always maxed sits and pulls. Thanks for posting.

RAT 19 May 2011 06:46

Fat and bald... Still 1st Class that is all I am saying.

Last "Wellness" test on 4/31/11;

77 push ups in 2 minutes
88 sit ups in 2 minutes
11:45 1.5 miles
275 out of 300*
Scores are adjusted based on age and gender (unknown what they do in Thailand). Same numbers for 24 y.o. dude would yield a 225.

Soot 19 May 2011 09:23

As I mentioned in another recent thread, I've just begun PTing again after a several year break during which the only exercise I got were 12 oz. curls and running to Dunkin Donuts.

Pass the rubber hose:

Army PFT circa 1990

27 push ups in 2 minutes (not counting the twenty-odd bitch pushups I did once I hit my knees)
34 sit ups in 2 minutes
Run/Walk 2 miles in ~40 min

Embarrasing, but motivating. I'll check in next week.

CombatWombat 19 May 2011 11:07

Current Army APFT (score band is 32-36 years old)
68 pushups - 93 Pts
76 situps - 100 Pts
15:16 2 mile - 83 Pts
Total - 276 out of 300 pts

Run is weak post deployment. Oh well. Back to the track. We're trying out the new Army PRT test next week and I'll put up my times, but no scores are set yet. The new pushup is going to wreck me since I've always done them wide arm and now I have to keep the index finger in line with my shoulder. I'm just praying to break 20 at this point. Who would've thought changing hand positions would have such an effect?

Current Army APFT:

29 pushups - 75/100

Actually, you're just about as ready as anyone to begin. Just take your time, find your groove, push yourself and all will come together pretty quickly! ;)
