Default AFPT Requirements

I recently have joined the Army National Guard and was mobilized in June 2004. Since becoming a member, I have been bother by the APFT that the Army has in place. First, I believe that PT is important, however I have never seen so many permenant profiles in my life. Whether running, situps or pushups there are by far way to many. To me this is a very big problem, especially the way the physical training is preached in the military. I am also surprised that when you attend a leadership school you must take and pass a PT Test. There are 2 semi-annual test given each year and this should be enough for you to attend a school without taking a test. I believe that as a class you should continue to perform PT but not to be tested. I also don't think that I should be competing with someone on a permenant profile for a promotion. Maybe I am missing something, if there is anyone out their that can shed some light on the matter please post a suggestion.
