Remember that the only event not effected by the others is push-ups. If you are totally exhausted by the end of the push-ups you are going to be hurting on the other events.
Unless you're perfectly fine on the other events.
For many many Years I've done my best on the pushups (muscle failure- getting 70-85 points,) and still maxxed the situps Everytime and got 95+ points on the run.
My last 2 PT tests (Warrant Officer School) I scored 271 and 283, coming in a full minute ahead of the max runtime, but still not beating the pushups.
When I see a Soldier do the minimum pushups and getup, they usually BARELY pass the other events, if they don't fail. Half of it's probably in the mind.
