Army Physical Fitness Test - What's your score?

The APFT is based on number of situps in 2 minutes, number of pushups in 2 minutes, and 2-mile time. Your score varies depending on age and gender. Get less than 60 points on any of the tests and you fail.

How do you rank?

Score charts based on age:
Age 17-21
Age 22-26
Age 27-31
Age 32-36
Age 37-41
Age 42-46
Age 47-51
Age 52-56
Age 57-61
Age 62+

How much of a break between each test (push-ups, sit-ups, and running)?

In the military there is typically a 2 minute rest period between movements. The run is done last.

i got rejected from the US Naval Academy so I joined NROTC for a semester at Cal. 6am morning PT 3 times a week excluding drills, it was hell...I was going the Navy route, but have to train with the Marines anyway because they are in the same unit. I've no interest in doing hardcore PT with the Marines for rest of the 4yrs in college so I dropped haha. That being said, 3miles ~18mins 16 pullups, I dont remember my time trial situps and pushups

I ususually scored between 180-200.
We had a standing tradition in my platoon that with pushups and situps, you get your mandatory minimum and then get up and walk away. We used to do it while smoking a heater, but then the CO moved that portion indoors to kill that. Whole purpose was to give a big middle finger to Top and the CO. For the run, it was basically run fast enough to pass. Had a guy who was always right at around the cutoff time, so all you had to do was stay in front of him.

But when I tried, my best was around 240-250ish.

That's a good score Proper. 110 good push-ups is really smokin it! I usually just hit my 75 or 78 or whatever it is and quit. Ain't no way I'm gettin 110!

I remember back when the young guys actually had to try harder than us old farts to max it.

We had a standing rule that if anyone maxed an exercise, they had to pay for a round of alcohol for the platoon. And they weren't allowed to go buy 2 cases of Old Mil BEAST and call it good.

When I was in the core the lowest score I got was around 240 and my highest in the 270's. The test was a 3 mile run with X

All I do one of my daily work outs is
100 dead hang pull ups, 200 push ups and 300 air squats
I'dont body build so I'm used to moving my own weight. Funny story the counter didn't say any thing until I hit a 100 or maybe I just zoned out. lol

Damn, 100 pullups? Do you just exercise and somehow get paid for a living? That's impressive.

I am an Intel Analyst so I have to work out as hard as possible when I do since I sit at a desk for almost 12hours aday. How ever 100 pullups isn't as much as it sounds. You do 10 pullups wait 15 seconds do 10 and then wait 30 seconds and do the next two sets. In one sitting the most I can do non stop is only 38 maybe 40 on a great day.

Haha 100 pull-ups in a row is a lot different that doing 10 sets of 10!

100 pull-ups a day is a lot. I don't care who you are. I think the most I've ever done in a day is 60 or so and it took me a while.
