What age range are you posting the numbers for? I know for the Army, the standards changed as I got older. The number for the minimum dropped but my number to max out increased.

These standards are for graduating basic training. They are a set standard for graduating basic. When you get out of basic and get into your unit these standards will change and will continue to change with different age grougs.

Ahhh I see. It's been 11 years since I was in basic so I completely forgot that everyone has the same standard. Didn't you guys in the Air Force have to ride a bike or something like that? I remember being so completely jealous of Air Force standards when I was in the Army. I work for the Air Force now as a DOD Civilian and I never ever see those officers doing PT, but I guess it's just because of the field that I'm in. I know some of the Air Force guys have it tough though.

What do you do in the Air Force?

It really is sad....the ppl who are suppose to be able to defend our country and fight for us are not trying to stay in shape I know I slacked and I now can not pass my PT test but Im young and Im turning things around.....they are really starting to crack down on PT standards and discharging ppl who can not or will not stay in shape......which I personally think is awesome.
