  • Physical Standards for Basic

    Finally I am mentally ready to join, I do believe I am physically fit being a 34 old male, but would like to know the basic standrads for school. Listed below is my daily schedule what I been following from last couple of months

    Sit ups: 5 sets of 35 sit ups and each set under a minute (always complete them in 15 minutes time span)

    Push ups: 10 sets of 35 push ups and each one have a rest time of 90 seconds in between.

    Running: I am not really practicing but recently I ran 300m sprint in 54 seconds and 1.4 miles in 11 minutes. (without any practice)

    Would like to hear any suggestions or advice to improve and if you know the standrads. Thanks in advance.

    Start running, it will save you heartache and bodyache in Basic.

    Google the standards for the 1-1-1 and the 2-2-2...you'll need to pass the 2-2-2 to graduate (if standards are still the same)

        Basic standards are easy. Basic as a whole is pretty easy. The hardest thing about basic is the training environment but even thats not too bad. Your push ups and sit ups plan is good just need to run a lot more like Loki stated. You don't need to run very far in your training at all, I wouldn't even go beyond 4 miles, but concentrate on getting that 2 mile time within standard and running a few days back to back occasionally.

          Do 60-120s (Run/Sprint for 60 seconds, walk for 120 seconds).

          I knocked off 3 minutes with just 3 months of doing it 3 times a week.

          three.

              We train in the heat or cold, rain or snow, beautiful or gloomy.

              Get on it.

                    Um, NOOOOOO....Mr. Loki said rain or snow, not sleet (i.e. ICE) and we both were simply trying to make the point that you should not only be prepared to train in less-than-ideal weather, but also be willing to and perhaps even do it now (hence encouraging you to start your training now)

                    THIS is where common sense would come in. IN NO WAY were you told to go try and run ON ICE any more than you were told to,for example, run at night with no reflective gear just because you'll often train at O'Dark Thirty. Mr. Loki said 'snow or rain', not an ice storm and I only encouraged you to run (ever heard of a treadmill??)

                    So I'm sorry if you feel that your boo-boo's are somehow our fault, but if your 'busted knees' & 'bloody elbows' will indeed be better by tomorrow, then what's the problem?

                    Get back out there and good luck with your training.

                    *REMEMBER* Safety First!!!

                      You were being trolled. Obvious troll is obvious. Have to admit, I chuckled when I read it though. So obvious, but successfull.

                          He also said sleet, not ice.

                          Fail reply is failure.

                          And if it's sleeting in Georgia already, you have a different set of problems... but yes, to clarify (I assume you understand what I mean but for others), the Army trains no matter what. You can be a 92Y Supply specialist attached to an infantry company and guess where you are going to spend your weekends training? A lot of units will go to the range and do a lot of their field training (non combat units) in the Spring and Fall time of year. It's still cold in October/November.

                          Even though I am AGR, I still take two PT tests when my AGR CoC wants me to. I took it 2 weeks ago at 0515 in the cold rain.

                            I know he said sleet....LOL

                            sleet (slt)
                            n.
                            1. Precipitation consisting of generally transparent frozen or partially frozen raindrops.
                            2. A mixture of rain and snow or hail.
                            3. A thin icy coating that forms when rain or sleet freezes, as on trees or streets.

                              Just because the weather wasn't so great doesn't mean you have to crawl, and if there was no barbed wire involved, why were you on your elbows?

                              Running is usually defined as an activity done on your feet and I'm sure you are aware that it is usually advisable to remain upright while participating .
