So now that the new army PFT includes a 3RM deadlift what are you noodle bodied manlets going to do when I deadlift 240kg and become your CO immediately???

Keep up the good threads panzer. Always glad to see your post

Laugh when you can’t do any push ups because of t-rex arms and fail the run cause “lol cardio kills gains”.
>>
>>38533633
those bars look like a good way to break both your legs at the same time
ergonomics uhas gone too far
>>
>>38533633
Every unit has to have all the equipment for all these events, store it, and drag it out for every pt test

Lol there are units that can't get a pt belt
>>
>>38533724
(Deadlifts are benefited by long arms as it shortens bar displacement)
>>
>>38533724
>Laugh when you can’t do any push ups because of t-rex arms and fail the run cause “lol cardio kills gains”.

This bulk muscle soldiers are a liability

New PFT and no pullups, why?
>>
>>38533633
That Drill Sergeant that keeps saying zero when you do a rep
>>
>>38533907
Remind me of the last time you gripped a bar in combat and did a strict pullup

Tbh farmers carries would be a more applicable test than deadlifts but it weeds out the tiny twinks who can only do pullups cause they weigh like 120lbs lol
>>
>>38533943
-t. Noodle bodied twink that couldnt deadlift his bodyweight
>>
>>38533828
Thats a good point
We used to do PT in a big field with lots of other units, no where near our barracks or a gym
They want the supply sergeant or someone to drag this shit out to that field?
>>
Holy Shit:


This is what the test will look like:

Deadlift between 120 and 420 pounds, depending on the individual soldier. You must do three reps in five minutes.
Two-minute rest.
Standing power throw. You’ll be required to toss a 10-pound medicine ball overhead and backward. You’ll have three minutes to make one practice throw and two for a grade. The longest distance is recorded.
Two-minute rest.
Hand-release push-ups. You lower your chest to the floor and lift your hands off the ground between each rep. You’ll be required to do the most reps in three minutes.
Two-minute rest.
Sprint-drag-carry. In four minutes, you will go 25 meters out and 25 meters back five times. Each iteration will include a different activity: sprint, drag a sled, run a lateral shuffle, carry two 40-pound kettle bells, then sprint again.
Two-minute rest.
Leg tuck. You will be required to hang from a pull-up bar and with your body parallel, then pull knees to your elbows for as many reps as possible in two minutes.
Five-minute rest.
Two-mile run on a track or a paved, level road, with a 20-minute maximum.

This will weed out 90% of all women in the military

No woman I ever knew in the Army could possible throw a 10 medicine ball over their head

Very few women I knew in the Army could deadlift 120 lbs.

Will this test improve combat readiness? ABSOLUTELY

But the reason its improving combat readiness is because its weeding out 40% of the Army
>>
>>38534069
And I forgot: Women carrying 2 40 lb kettle balls?

no fucking way. Most would crumble with 15 lb kettle balls
>>
>>38534069
It actually dumbfounds me how weak normal people are 120lbs is something I will do overhead presses with on a deload week lmfao

I cannot imagine not being able to pick it up to your waist lmfao
>>
>>38534069
That's exactly why it won't happen. Yeah women and fat fucks shouldn't serve but you really think anyone wants to do all that paperwork/replace all those old robolegged NCO's and have to deal with all the bullshit? They've been talking about a new PT test forever, it aint happening.
>>
>>38533943
Man is that shit ever funny though
>>
>>38533950
True, but back strength is important for climbing things and for hanging onto floating things.

No pullups because so many did 0.

200lbs is the minimum effective combat weight the ideal is 270lbs

270 is fat but there are plenty of dudes in my unit that weigh around 200-220 units and aren’t fat at all. Just dudes that lift a a lot, 270 in full kit isn’t surprising.

I demand they implement a squat and if you cannot squat 200kg the DI shoots you immediately
>>
>>38534385
Yeah I'm 215 and right on the line of overweight by army standards, because its a stupid system if you're muscular. I pass tape no problem. 270 in pts is ridiculously fat, I don't care if you're 6'6".

greater difference between you and me than there is between a heavyweight and a welterweight.

>>38534442
I dunno. We had a 6'4" Samoan dude in my outfit who was 266 and had to be taped every time.

I won't say he was a track star as his run times were just alright but that motherfucker could do push ups and sit ups for fucking ever.

shows what you know, faggot

>>38534228
I weighed about the same. I regularly maxed out the PFT and as an infantry guy, I could ruck 200lbs (Body Armor, weapon, rucksack) for miles no problem. Then I went to Iraq and we rode around in Humvees/sprinted from cover to cover.

I believe the PFT should be harder for combat arms, tailored to the combat of the day, and adjusted regularly. After all, I don't give a fuck if the payroll guy isn't as fit as the guys in my fire team. Or the women I suppose...glad I got out when I did.

Only because the tape test is pants on head, as for the Run they should be able to pass, but IMO the army needs one run standard - no male female bullshit and more focus on strength anyway - we are after all trying to prevent injuries do to carrying too much shit
>>
>>38534069
This is a good thing, now remove the male/female standards for the run, push ups and situps going somewhere in between - more focus on strength building and endurance training - you'll have to finally fix the tape test

>>38533897
This is only because of the tape test and to a lesser extent the run, I never had a problem with Bulkers inna field or deployment other than them always being fucking hungry
>>
>>38534137
The overwhelming focus on cardio and tape allows the current bullshit with the army to perpetuate. We focus overwhelmingly on cardio and combat troops are still getting back injuries, and people who have no business in the army sail by - POG lanklets and women who can barely function with IOTV + Kevlar and weapon just carrying an ammo can . I've long said the run should be replaced with some kind of timed sprint AND a timed ruck march - but that would also remove half the damned army
>>
>>38534134
Ohhhhhh. UR SO FUCKING COOL!!!!
>>
>>38534228
You should not be a 135lb man in the Army, even if you are a manlet they should have bulked you to 170 or above
>>
>>38534228
>tfw 230 lbs of function muscular man
Sorry you have shit genetics
>>
>>38534246
270lbs could be a 6'2'' bulker
I knew plenty of guys who were 5'9'' to 6'0'' in the 240lb range who bulked and they always had tape test issues.

The fact of the matter is the tape test fucking sucks, should have been fixed years ago - it just encourages cardio lanklets and perpetuates injuries due to carrying too much shit
>>
>>38536542
I mean above 220+ range*
>>
>>38534228

All men under 165lbs should be fucking shot. Fucking subhuman twink manlet garbage, ugh.

I must be misunderstanding something about this task because if you can't pick up a 10 pound weight and throw it backwards over your head, what the fucking shit. How is this remotely hard for anyone, even a teenager or child? Why is this even a standard? It's ten pounds, yes? It's a ball? And you just toss it up and over your head behind you? What am I missing here?
>>
>>38537856
You have to throw it a certain distance

150-170 is actually pretty ideal for pilots. Ejection seat weight and balance limitations and all that’s.
