ok... with the possibility of soon joining the Army Reserves... my new goals will be to maximize my scores on the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT).
This means a minimum of 60 points per event, with three scored events:
2 mile run (17:00)
The numbers in parentheses are the minimum score required to score 60 points.
While i understand that Basic training will improve my scores in these areas... i see no reason why i cannot work to at least meet these minimum requirements now.
This also serves a dual purpose because i have applied with two different law enforcement agencies in my area. While both have comparatively easier physical requirements, a higher score on my fitness tests would place me higher on the list of applicants.
So... this means working on my running speed (sprints and general speed work), more push-ups (i am averaging about 60 a day... i need to increase that), and core work (practicing sit-ups is ok... but i really need to work on the muscles).
