Default Am I Prepared Physically?

I can do about 85 sit ups in 2 minutes, I maxed 43 push ups today though I think I can push to about 50 (not bad considering I only used to be able to do 15 max), and haven't tested myself on my run but last I did was about 7 months ago and got 11:08 (Educated guess, I can probably get 10:30 at this point). Should I be set for the PRT?

Well, depends on your age. Your situps and run sound pretty good, but I think your pushups would be borderline if you were an alpha male (17-19).

You'll pass easily. Unless you work out regularly already, the boot camp lifestyle should be enough to improve you. I went from a bare pass on push-ups to nearly 60, added at least 30 sit-ups, and cut nearly 2 minutes off my run. The PT may or may not be challenging to you, but if it isn't, just find a way to make it so.

Yeah, push ups are my weak point (it's tougher being 196 pounds and 6'4 lol) but I've been doing at LEAST 100 everyday using different variations, low sets, little rest, and high reps per set with proper form.

That was 43 in less than 1 minute lol Just did as many as fast I could with strict form (though I still could have held the push up position, rested, then pushed my way to 50+ if I'd done 2 minutes)

I tried to see if I could do it and i didn't go for a full 2 Minutes but I could do 37 In i believe 1 min or just under.

The 1 1/2 Mile I believe I have down I run cross country so i think I'm good there.

Sit-Ups i think I have down as-well. The problem with Sit-Ups that bugs me is the fact on a Gym Floor such as a High School Gym, which is also the Basketball Court its harder to do them because of the tailbone.

But i think you have some time like me as well to continue to Progress.

I don't know about RTC, but at OCS we were allowed to use foam mats for the sit ups.

I spoke with some sailors that graduated from A School not that long ago. They said foam mats are provided for the sit ups.

Thank You! Not to sound like a wimp but it just is kinda annoying if there isn't one. Well at least I don't have to worry about that I think for me its the Push-Ups.

To be clear - while you will have mats for your PFAs - your RDCs will also make you practice in the compartment during regular PT, and you don't get a mat then.

We don't use them at my A school either, but that's because everything's done outside on the field.

Practice is fine on the floor. Just weanted to be able to do as many as possible during the PT Test.

Minimum is 3, but only the final one counts.

How to they keep track of your pushups, situps and run? I'm assuming they pair people up and rely on their honesty in reporting how many you did because of the fact that there are just too many recruits to do each person one by one. Do they do the buddy system on the last test too?

Yes. You are always counting for your partner (even in the real navy when you do your PT test twice a year). There will be RDCs walking up and down the rows to make sure you are doing the correct form.

Push-ups and sit-ups are counted by a partner and observed by CFLs and RDCs for accuracy and form (Kinda... we're talking 5 observers for 80-90 recruits). The run is recorded electronically using an ankle monitor and a series of sensors you pass on each lap.

I know you pt everyday does that mean you run every day also? That will help considerably with my running especially
if i am running with other people. But on the side of that do you have any free time to work out extra? Like say because I wanna improve my run could I run 2 a day?

You'll only run in Freedom Hall, and you'll only actually go there maybe 3 times a week... the other times will be in-house PT, which is mostly arm-circles and push-ups/sit-ups. You're not allowed to PT on your own... some recruits did anyway after taps... but I personally preferred to get adequate rest.
