Below is a link to a brief post by Alden Mills, ex-SEAL and the guy who runs the “Perfect Fitness” company. Go read it.
What I find really interesting, is that I cannot easily remember what the minimum USMC PFT scores were. All I can recall is what I the max. scores that we could achieve were that’s all that we were ever interested in is maxing that score. Except when a few of us got rebellious one day and tried to just squeak it by. That did not work out so well.
Let’s see what happens when I try and dust of that potion of the organic data center….
Pullups – Max 20 … Min 3 (?)
Situps – Max 100… Min 40 (2 minute limit)
3 mile run – Max pts. 18 min … Min Points…30 min(?),
The run varied by age too. All I remember for sure is the max points goals, that is all that mattered.
If I recall correctly, achieving the min. standard in all three events resulted in a fail. It was not enough overall points to get you a passing PFT score.
