Preparing for Fitness Test
« on: March 14, 2019, 12:37:35 »
Hello all,

I'm going to be joining the reserves and have my CFAT and fitness test in a week. CFAT, I'm not concerned about as I can study for that. However is there some kind of benchmark I should meet so I know I'm going to do well on the fitness test. Like how many pushups, situps, running times, just so I know I have the physical capability to pass the test? Is there any kind of benchmark?

All right, they're on our left, they're on our right, they're in front of us, they're behind us... they can't get away this time.
