I really don't see males and females being graded on the same scale realistically. Either the standards get easier for the men(already pretty low IMO) or the standards get harder for the females which will create an imbalance in terms of promotion points for PT.
From what we were being told the points for some exercises would get easier for males (rower, push ups) and some would get harder for females (both run events). I am wondering if that mentality will continue on with the new test or if they will have separate grading scales.
The other day, I saw a buddy of mine in what appeared to be a game where he was getting interrogated and beaten.
That *game* was online SERE training.
Not saying anything...but I'm just saying.
Back to the OP, I was part of the control testers when they released the new APRT or Army Physical Readiness Test. It's not a difficult test by any means, and I hope they do make it harder by bringing in pull ups and increasing the 1.5 mile to 2...Although the 4 mile and 12k that the SMA has talked about is a little daunting.
