Request Information

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 Push-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.

Height and Weight Requirements for Recruits


You must score at least a 50 in each event in order to graduate Basic Combat Training. Active Duty soldiers need to score at least 60 to pass the APFT.


To use this chart, find the column for your Age Group, then scroll down until you see the yellow highlighted score of 50. Next, go to the left-hand column for that row. That is how many sit ups you will need to complete during this event.

For example: If you are between the ages 27 and 31, you must do at least 36 sit ups in two minutes in order to pass this event.
