The APFT provides a measure of upper and lower body muscular endurance. It is a performance test that indicates a Soldier’s ability to perform physically and handle his or her own body weight. APFT standards are adjusted for age and physiological differences between male and female.

The APFT consists of three events:


  1. Push-ups

  2. Sit-ups

  3. 2-mile run

The events are performed in that order and on the same day. Soldiers are allowed a minimum of 10 minutes and a maximum of 20 minutes rest between events. All three events must be completed within two hours.

Soldiers in BCT must attain 50 points in each event and an overall score of 150 points to meet APFT minimum standards. You should push yourself to achieve your maximum performance in each event.

Soldiers in AIT and OSUT must attain a score of at least 60 points on each event and an overall score of at least 180 points to graduate.

The maximum score a Soldier can attain on the APFT is 300 points. This should be your goal.
