Go to Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, or about 50% of law enforcement academies across the United States and you will see the PFT Standard:
Pushups, Situps, 1.5-mile run.- (pullups also included)
Even the Marine Corps uses this test with its recruits with added pullups. With added pullups, it is also the common Air Force PAST Test for many special programs (TACP, Special RECON, etc)
Now, there is an ebook to address the PFT standard and the functional strength of the core system, legs/hips, upper body, and running. More than half the military and law enforcement personnel have to do this PFT - That is why I call this training plan the PFT Bible!
CORE Testing Updates: Now updated for plank poses and leg tucks as many branches are finding ways to replace situps/crunches with plank poses and knee-ups. But situps and crunches are not completely gone yet, so build a strong core system so you can do them all if needed.
Go to your training in the shape of your life with this program to help ace the standard Physical Fitness Test (PFT). Pushups, situps, and running are featured in this program accompanied by weights as optional training tools as well.
From Navy Chief: "Stew I used this program starting in January and by June when I had to take the PFT for the Navy, I blew it away for the first time in my 10 years of service. I even scored outstanding in the 18-20 age group! Thanks a lot!"
