passing the pt test isnt squat.your gonna need endurance and alot of it,doing some pushups or being able to run 2 miles isnt gonna cut it.i started out in recon and if you cant get to where yer going all the pt tests arnt going to do any good.also its not just your body but your mind must be intune to.you need the attitude you can not only max the pt test but go beyond.listen to these guys they aint just killing time talking to you.goodluck and do good
