    A perfect PFT (Physical fitness test, which you must score and average to make it out of basic.) for the marines is 20 pullups, 100 crunches and 3 miles in 18:00. (This is not the average requirements, just to get 100%. 16 pullups, 80 crunches and 21:00 time on 3 mile is 80%)

    I would know.

    They don't have a requirement on push ups, because you do an infinite amount at basic just for breathing. Shit was crazy.

    PS: naxel, stop doubting yourself. Only pussies doubt themselves.

    Also, stop with the insults guys. The only thing you can't get infracted for in the spamboard is spamming. The rest of the rules apply.

    The initial strength test by the Marines isnt too hard...
    2 Pull Ups
    35 Sit Ups (within 2 minutes)
    1.5 Mile Run in 13.5 minutes

    They of-course have you do a final Physical Fitness Test which is much more rigorous, but after 3 months of Marine military training and Marine Boot Camp down at Paris Island, I'm sure its not too much the challenge.

    On a side note, nice job naxel, don't doubt yourself and give it everything you have. Nothing is worse than not doing it just because you convinced yourself that you couldn't.

    Ahh yeah IDK where I got that, thought I read it somewhere. Guess I was wrong. ;3 Thanks for correction. But regardless it's intense.. and if you're joining the army just for fitness what's the point? That's not what it's about... You can do that at your local gym.

    The IST is like the rainbow sprinkles of their tests. The PFT was rigorous.

    They use the IST to make people feel better about themselves till they get to basic.

    Got my answer today, and i got in.

    My question to you is: how fast will I be "kicked" out from this shyat?

    It is not required to join this, I just do it because why not. If I like it I will probably stay and get the full education.
    The guys which guess is closest will get a csgo skin or someshiz!idk
    It will change your outlook I thought I was gonna get booted soon after joining. 11 years later I'm still in.

    If you need any insight on jobs I'm no recruiter I'll be honest man. Just let me know before you take the dive and I'll try to help you pick something worth doing.

    I passed every requirement. Marine, Paratrooper, pilot..
    we have physical tests, iq, mental and condition, f eks. running first for 5 minutes at 5 degrees uphill in about 7-8km/h as warmup and then every minute it increases by 1 degree and one km/h..

    In the end one of the army doctors simply said: NOPE. I have someting bad in my foot that they dont wanna push..
