WTH is going on with the Army...longer training...better PT test, changes that make sense.....a little scary :-)

“The more physically challenging your MOS, the more you’ll be required to do at the minimum levels,” said Michael McGurk, director of research and analysis at CIMT."

A new Army PT test is on its way. This is not a drill.

I like it. The old standards barely measured a soldiers ability to accomplish his mission. But, with these new standards, I don't see the attrition rate suddenly improving. Get the banana suits back out!:-)

Eh, I always felt the let's change the PT test thing every two years was bloody annoying. In fact I think this one is just as stupid as some of the others. What I wanted was two separate tests like they do in the Marine Corps: PFT, CFT.

All this and The Army keeps the worlds worst way of measuring fat %. I think this newer PT TEST is a step in the right direction, I just wonder if the Army will mess this up like everything else.

:-x:ninja:
