Are you or maybe your son or daughter consider joining the Army, Airforce, Navy or Marines?
There are different requirements for each branch of our military, but each of them include a timed run, push-ups, pull-ups and sit-ups. The requirements for the Army are changing in 2018, and will be even more of a challenge.
On top of the fitness requirements, there are weight and body fat (minimum and maximum) that must be met in order to be considered a recruit for each branch.
Military training is a full-time job! Basic training consists of long days and nights for several weeks. Getting into the habit of working out in the morning, going to school or work during the day, then doing something in the evening…maybe another workout or running, or even studying are all things that will help prepare you. You need to learn how to put in the time.
If you are overweight, or near the maximum weight or body fat standards, the sooner you get started the better. Bottom line is, if you do not meet the requirements, you may not even be able complete your basic military training.
If you arrive at basic military training unprepared physically, the risk of injury is significantly increased. Depending on injury, you may fail your fitness test and you may not recover in time to graduate. Failure will result in you being rolled into other training classes or being sent home, unable to complete basic military training.
