    Re: running in bct

    I know that you have to be able to run a 2 mile in under 15 mins for your physical, along with doing X amount of push ups/sit ups in under 2 mins.

    But thats just for your pyhsical, if thats whatyou were wondering.
    As far as running in BCT as a whole,.... alot? lol

      15:54 is the minimum passing grade for the youngest age group. Every other one is higher.

      Granted, you won't be "officially" graded on this until maybe your 4th/5th PT test.

        On the plus side, if your not in shape now, you will be lol. I've never been in that bad of shape myself, but I've still been working out every day untill I leave for Arkansas. My brothers who are in the Army allready suggested that I get used to running 4 miles a Day before I leave, and so i figured I would heed their advice and hope to be ready lol.

                    Dude, Google is your friend. Is it harder to type "Army push up standards" or post ten times asking "Some Thing Like 100 P/u In 2 Min ," ???

                    Unless you're apprehensive about the spelling of a duosyllabic word ("standards"), come on now...

                        i guess that means you dont know .
                        i am sure i would get a answer by googling but if its gonna be accurate or not is a different story, and why google
                        when i can ask you guys , if that was the case this site would have no purpose.
                        right ?

                          thank you ,
                          your the man


                          correct me if im wrong but im 25 so that means i would have to do a min of 31 to score a 50 and pass.
                          if this is correct what would be the incentive to do more than the minimum

                            right ?

                            No, it means this site has been in existence for quite a few years now, and that those with a higher post count have seen these questions, have answered these questions, and have gotten annoyed with the same questions quite a few times before.

                            The results you find off Google may or may not be accurate... I would say not any more or less accurate then getting answers from anonymous people off the internet, some of whom may not have ever served a day in their life.

                            The purpose of various websites like GoArmy.com or Military.com posting such information is so that people like you can find it readily available. It's for your convenience. It's so you can easily look it up, rather then have to ask around, which is what you're doing. That's "why google", as you so eloquently put it.

                            This site serves multiple functions. You are correct in assuming that it is a source of information for potential recruits to ask Guardsmen certain questions. However, it is also a discussion board with, as you can see, a multitude of different topics. That being said, if you search through prior threads you will see that many basic questions have either been answered previously, or the OP has been instructed to utilize a search engine.

                              That is partially correct, to graduate BCT you have to obtain a min score of 50% which for a 25 year old male would be 31 pushups. But to pass an Army PFT you have to obtain a min score of 60% which would be 40. The reason you want to obtain the max score possible is for promotion, the better your PFT score the more points you get, the more points you have the better your chances of being promoted quickly.
