Fitness TestPosted: June 6, 2012 | |
Today this Sailor had to do his PFT (physical fitness test). This is a biannual required evolution. I haven’t been able to do one for 1 year (I was medically waived for my high blood pressure). Well, today I KILLED IT. As far as the Navy is concerned I am-
38 years old.
63 1/2″ tall
My performance results were-
sit-ups 84 (90 is my max)
push-ups 76 (my max)
1.5 mile run 13:28
And I didn’t even prepare for it. lol.
Now- 2 things are funny about a Navy PFT. The first is watching fat bodies that are being paid to defend the county struggle to pass the PFT. The second is all the FMF (Fleet Marine Force) guys that quote “Full Metal Jacket” while counting off reps. lol. The last 20 seconds of the evolution is classic.
“ONE FOR THE COMMANDANT!!!!! ONE FOR THE CORPS!!!!!!! DAMMIT DOC, ONE FUCKING MORE…..C’MON MOTIVATOR!!!!”
This isn’t about encouragement as much as it is about trying to make the tested laugh. As I eeked out my last push up while 2 lower ranking HM’s were screaming at me, when my time expired and I dropped to the ground, my boy told me, “well shit. I like you, I’m gonna let you come to my house and fuck my sister.” lol.
I was laughing so hard it wasn’t funny. The kid gave me a hand and helped me up.”I gotcha old-timer.” I IMMEDIATELY faked a punch to his gut. “Still fast enough to drop your Similac sipping ass boy.” He laughed and we both tapped each other’s shoulder.
