GORUCK Heavy, Tough, and Light Training:
Day after Christmas? Yup. Time to get to work.
No matter what event you’re training for, everyone will be doing the APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test). The test consists of 2-minute max push-ups, 2-minute max sit-up, and a 2 mile timed run.
Bonus points if you wear a Santa hat.
You can read the exact standards for each movement here.
To see what your target goals should be for each portion of the test based on your gender and age, you can view the standards here.
To find out if you pass/fail, use this APFT Calculator. Record your score to note improvement next time you take the test.
Those of you training for a GORUCK Heavy, remember that you will need to hit 55 on both the push-up and sit-up during your event PT test.
