Description and SEALFIT support all branches of the military and strive to get individuals prepared for what awaits them. For decades, the Army has assessed physical fitness through the standard fitness test that many branches of the military / law enforcement use: Pushups, sit-ups, 2 mile run (though most groups use the 1.5 mile run for cardio fitness test). Many have argued over the years that this test is not a good indicator of whether or not someone will be a good soldier. At best, the Army PFT is a Health and Fitness Test – not a job performance test. Now, after a decade of war, changes have been made to better equip today’s soldier with the skills that will be used in combat.

The NEW Army Physical Readiness Test (APRT) which is scheduled to be implemented later in 2011, expand from three events to five. These events are the following:

60-yard progressive shuttle run | one-minute rower (non-stop)| standing long-jump | one-minute push-up (non-stop) | 1.5 mile run |

The APRT is tested along with the new ACRT once per year.

The Army Physical Fitness School created the Army Combat Readiness Test (ACRT). The ACRT consists of the following exercises:

1 - 400-meter run with a weapon 2 – Obstacle Course with low and high hurdles and crawling obstacles 3 - 40-yard casualty drag 4 - 40-yard run with ammo cans on a balance beam 5 – Sight picture drills with your weapon while moving through obstacles 6 - 100-yard ammo can shuttle sprint. 7 - 100-yard agility sprint

This Twelve week plan focuses on SIX weeks to prepare for the APRT and an additional SIX week plan for the ACRT.

Also an additional 30 day beginner routine to build up to the intermediate level of fitness required for the new workout routine.
