Army Combat Fitness Test Proposed Scoring Standard

A few days ago the proposed Combat Fitness Scoring Standard was leaked and published by Army Times.

The proposed scoring standards show the below minimum age and gender neutral scores for the following PT test events:

  • Dead Lift: 140lb
  • Power Throw: 4.6m
  • Hand Release Pushups: 10
  • Sprint Drag Cary: 3:35
  • Let Truck: 1
  • 2 mile Run: 21:07

While the minium scores are pretty low, It is important to note that these minimum scores are not minimums for all Army MOS’s. Different army units are considered “Significant” or “heavy” demand, and as such their Fitness Test minimum’s are raised.

Below are the DRAFT ACFT scoring Standards:
