Today we are going to do the United States Marine Corps PFT.

300 will equal a perfect score for both male and female.

Strict Pull Ups

Pull-up.The maximum standards have changed. For the 17-20 year old male the standard to max the PFT has not changed, however from the ages of 25-35 you now have to do 23 pull-ups to max that portion of the fitness test. The goal of the pull-up event is for the Marine to execute as many accurate and complete pull-ups before dropping off the bar. This is not a timed event. The bar must be grasped with both palms facing either forward or to the rear.

For women they will have to do 9 Strict Pull Ups. No kipping allowed (bringing knees up horizontal to waist). One repetition consists of raising the body with the arms until the chin is above the bar, and then lowering the body until the arms are fully extended.

Abdominal Crunch (Men and Woman)

Abdominal Crunch.There is a 2-minute time limit. Marines will lie flat on their back with shoulder blades touching the deck, knees will be bent, and both feet will be flat on the deck. The arms will be folded across the chest or rib cage with no gap existing between the arms and chest/rib cage. A single repetition consists of raising the upper body from the starting position until both forearms or elbows simultaneously touch the thighs, and then returning to the starting position with the shoulder blades touching the deck. An assistant / counter may be used to hold a Marine’s legs or feet. The new Marine aged 17-21 now has to score 105 crunches in 2 minutes to max the test.

Three Mile Run.The goal is for a Marine to complete the measured course as quickly as possible.

This is a timed event. Monitors will call out the split or finishing time as appropriate, as each Marine Male passes. The run scoring has not changed.

Men

So a perfect score for the men will be be 23 pull ups, 115 Crunchers and run 3 miles in 18 minutes. Visit this site to get your exact scores by plugging in your gender, age and results.

Testimonials

*CrossFit lighthouse is the place to be if you want to push your body to the next level. It doesn't matter where your starting point is when it comes to fitness. The coaching staff, along with the people that work-out at CrossFit Lighthouse bring a positive, challenging, invigorating, and addicting atmosphere. Every WOD is hard. Every WOD is challenging. But the hardest part isn't even the workout itself .... It's "walking through the doors". It's coming in proud, knowing you just made the best decision of your life !!!
As soon as you walk into Lighthouse everyone is always excited to see you there. It's never "hey how are you?". But more like "Hey Sammy, what's up dude, Awesome seeing you here, how's the family, how's the job, what's new, are you ready for this WOD"? You can't help it, but find yourself excited knowing you're about to experience something insane, like nothing you've ever experienced before. The challenges become more intense with every second left on the clock, and every drop of sweat that falls from your body to the floor.

The best part about this is that you never feel alone when your working out at Lighthouse. There's always that sense of being a part of a team at Lighthouse. Although it's just you doing the actual WOD, You're never alone working out because not only do you have coaches by your side to make sure that your "form" is perfect - not only are the coaches there to push you, and motivate you, and cheer you on every step of the way - You're never alone because there's always someone next to you experiencing the pain and the determination needed to get to the end of the WOD. There's someone next to you across your left shoulder and right shoulder pushing you to finish this challenge. There's someone there just as hungry to make it to the finish line. It's as if you're running the football for a touchdown and your teammate is there to get you to the "End-zone". I Love that feeling !!!

The coaches are a blessing to have around. They really take their time to explain the workouts and the movements required to hit your goals. Whether it's during the WOD'S, or the specialized classes like Olympic Lifting, they really are passionate and motivating in everything they teach. The coaching staff is always available and approachable if you need help with form, or tips to achieving the next plateau like the "muscle-up".
Some people smile and others cry because everyone knows that when you walk through the doors of CrossFit Lighthouse, you're about to indulge in something fierce, something exhausting, and something worthwhile!!! Working out at CrossFit Lighthouse has not only helped me with reaching my fitness goals, but it has also motivated me outside "the Box". It has helped me with my job and my everyday life becoming mentally strong to endure the next thing. I have developed strong relationships with new friends and motivated old friends to give CrossFit a try. My experience with CrossFit Lighthouse has given me the spark to continue my fitness and become a better person for my co-workers, friends, and family. I thank Jack, Dan, and the rest of the Lighthouse staff for making this experience unbelievable. Can't wait for the next WOD at Lighthouse.
Sincerely,
Sam Juarez*
