Prepare for the FACT and the USAF PFT
If you are not involved in a fitness program, we recommend you start one before your arrival. Students will accomplish a standard USAF Physical Fitenss Test (PFT) at the start of UPT and again upon completion. Make sure you haven't slacked off in your physical fitness in the later portion of your senior year in college - or wherever you are coming from prior to reporting for UPT.
The Strength Test Category requires 10-15
repetitions. Exercise and weight requirements include: your body weight
multiplied by .35 for arm curls, .8 for bench press, .7 for lat pulls, 1.6
for leg press and .5 for leg curls.
The Muscular Endurance Test includes:
push-ups, abdominal crunches and leg presses at a minimum of 20 reps to a
maximum of 50 reps. (remember: no extra points for over the max amount).
