Making the PT Test Just Another Workout

Army Situp PT

Wouldn't it be nice to go into your next PT test and have the feeling of "this is just another workout" versus "this is not going to be good" and worry yourself sick over it?

There is a way to get to that point, but it takes practice, discipline, and building good training habits. Here is a way to make the Navy physical screening test (PST) used for SEAL, EOD, Diver, and SAR Rescue Swimmer, based on the following elements: 500yd swim, pushups, situps, pullups, and 1.5 mile timed run.

Try this for "just another workout" sometime, practice good testing habits, and build a testing strategy.

PST Practice Workout:

Warmup 5-10 minutes - your choice

Pushups 2 min
Situps 2 min
Pullups max

Run 1.5 miles timed

Rest 5 minutes

Run 1.5 mile timed

Pushups 2 min
Situps 2 min
Pullups max

500yd swim timed

Pushups 2min
Situps 2 min
Pullups max -- If possible, on pool deck

500yd swim timed

Run or ruck replacement if no pool for another 20-30 minutes

Give this a shot or create and arrange to fit your testing elements into such a program. The best way to get better at fitness tests is to make fitness testing part of your training.
Good luck – Crush the Test!
