Cadets Preparing for Spring Record Army Physical Fitness Test

All Cal Poly Cadets will take a for-record Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) between 16 and 18 May.  For Cadets in Junior (or MS3) standing, the results will be incorporated into their accessions score and ultimately impact their standing on the national Order of Merit List (OML).  For everyone else, the results are used to determine campus-based OML and track overall physical development.

The APFT includes two minutes of sit-ups, two minutes of push-ups, and a two mile run.  Each event is separated by 10 minutes and includes a recording of an individual's height and weight before the events begin.  Reference TC 3-22.20, Appendix A, for additional information.
