Looking For Some US Military Information

Fri Feb 07, 2003 5:28 pm

I am having trouble looking up some information on the services.

I remember what the P.T. Standards where when I was in the Army but does anybody have the standards for the other four services??? Or know where I can link to them

Not worried about flight duty or anything special like that, just the basic standards will be fine.

Apparently my mid-life crisis is starting at 30. Big grin

Just kidding.

Thanks for any help.

http://www.globemaster.de/faq/career.html is a good starting point. It has some recruiting links for all branches. I remember that I once looked up the standards for the USMC on one of the given URLs.

Don't know why you're looking but:

Marine Corps Order P6100.12
for a 30-year old guy
Minimum standards
Situps 45 max 100
Dead-Hang Pullups 3 max 20
3 mile run 29:00 max 18:00

Navy OPNAV Instruction 6110.1G
for a 30-year old guy
Minimum standards
Situps 44 max 98
Pushups 35 max 80
1.5 mile run 14:15 max 9:20

of course the standards change based on your age and whether you're a guy or gal.

I think in the Air Force after you're in (past boot camp or after you're commissioned as an officer), all you have to do is ride a stationary bike for a while and as long as your heart rate isn't too excessive and you're aren't breathing too hard, you're okay.  Smile At least that's what my roommate tells me, I have a hard time grasping that particular concept for a physical fitness test. I live in a house where one of my roommates is in the Army and my other roommate is in the Air Force and we all give each other a hard time about being in our respective services.

Found the Air Force one:

After a set aerobic exercise (I guess it doesn't matter the reference doesn't specify what exercise to do ride a stationary bike, or run on a treadmill) , I guess you do something like a breathalyzer where the maximum oxygen uptake allowed for a 30-year old guy is 32ml/kg2.

The testing area has to be in an area that is quiet and cool between 68 and 72 deg. Testing is supposed to stop if the temp is above 75deg.

I have no idea what 32ml/kg2 of oxygen means, or how the whole fitness test is administered, but the reference is Air Force Instruction 40-501.

Hey those personel order/manual numbers give me a great point to start searching again.

Thanks.

The Air Force was just stating that stationary bike test when I was getting out of the army.

Never did understand it.
