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

*Courage, inspiration and ambition. While they are simple words to say, their execution is no easy task. I walked into CrossFit Lighthouse I in May of 2014 having exhausted the usual gym routines, home personal trainers and multiple home training video’s. Looking around the facility, I saw members engaged in box jumps, pull ups and jump ropes? I knew this was going to be something unique. What I didn’t expect was to be welcomed, embraced and motivated beyond compare.
The courage I drew upon to begin this training regimen was equally matched by my gym-mates, each with their own story, reasons and at a point in their lives wanting to be better. We arrive at CrossFit after approaching life’s crossroad of personal or professional uncertainty. Some are students, young and eager to build a mind and body, to compete, train or perform. Some are young parents, newly enthusiastic about life and the hopeful legacy they nurture. Others like myself with older children, hoping to recapture some youth, strength and physique. Regardless, our endpoint is the same: good health=good life.
Inspiration predominantly comes from the owners, trainers and the facility. The new modern, state of the art facility of Lighthouse II allow Dan and Jack and their brilliant staff to teach, encourage, motivate and compel each member’s improvement. From barely finishing a WOD scaled to ability, my personal progression to Rx, acquiring skills of double-under jump rope, muscle-ups and the endurance achieved has improved my health immensely. The comradery, friendships, encouragement and insights are the Box’s double bonuses.
Ambition in life transcends all we do. Ambition is fueled by self-confidence and achievement. These two elements begin with a daily dose of discipline which I define as simply doing what you don’t want to do when you don’t want to do it. Having CrossFit in my day clearly puts the remainder of the day in perspective. Regardless of how imaginative or grand your ambitions are, the physical and mental fitness necessary to achieve them for me are encouraged by CrossFit.*
