    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.

      Any links to the data given here?

      It's been changed to a 2 mile run again?

        I took my PT test (not the new one) today at 0530; passed tape and I am good now until I get back from deployment.

            It is just being thrown out there by the SMA. Does not mean its going to happen.

              From what I looked up he said he is also going to review the jump and 60 yard run as well

                    I saw your other post too so I'm going to assume that this post just came out miss-worded and you understand that you can't take a physical fitness test online.

                    To answer your other post. You don't take a PT test to join, you just need to meet weight requirements. You wouldn't take your first PT test until 1-1-1 at RSP after you join.

                    Find a recruiter in your area through nationalguard.com and they can explain the basics too you.

                      I'd have to say that qualifies for a new signature.

                          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.

                            This is a mandatory pre-mob course. It takes about 6 hours so there is a bit of torture to it.
