initial pt test before basic

Your recruiter may or may not sign off on the 1-1-1 PT test (a few pushups, a few situps, and a 1 mile run adjusted for your age/sex) for you to ship to Basic, however, if you fail the 1-1-1 at the first week of inprocessing, you will be held there for a few weeks to give you the opportunity to pass. From there, you will likely be chaptered if you lack motivation to continue or cannot pass after a certain amount of weeks.
Lauren is probably female- 100-200 a day is kinda high. Smiler

Just practice doing some per day- 5-10 at a time if you can. If you can't do ANY, do them on your knees, keeping your body straight still from shoulders to knees.

The Army WANTS you to succeed. It might not feel like it sometimes (especially at Basic Training) but they truly want you to be "all that you can be" and "Army of One"...
If you fail any portion of the PFA the recruiter should be doing the right thing and asking for a RENO for you. Our BN is getting hit hard from Future Soldier leaders checking the block and the Future Soldier not making it in BCT due to the PFA.

If you know you are having any issues in any part of the PT you should be asking the Future Soldier leader and/or your recruiter for help, it's not hard to do 3 P/U, 13 S/U, and a 9-10min 1 mile.
