The U.S. Army has very specific physical fitness requirements. If you are thinking about joining and want to know what kind of shape you need to be in, this chart, along with the Sit-up standards and the 2-mile Run standards, will tell you everything you need to know. These charts are also used for passing the APFT, which is administered several times a year for all Army soldiers.
