New Army Fitness Test

The army is finally replacing their distance run / timed situps / timed pushups test in favor of what sounds like more balanced exercises. These include a sled drag, rower situps (a little more spine friendly), 1.5 mile run, pushups coupled with the rower situps without rest, and even a long jump.

You can read more about it here or check out a slideshow of the exercises here. Tell a Friend
