    Default Former 5 Event PT Test

    Any FOG's on here remember the task, condition and standards for the old 5 event PT test?

    Anyone have this?

    I enlisted in 1980 and we still did it. So at least then or before.

    Seems like I remember having to do situps, horizontal ladder, run dodge and jump, crab crawl/reverse crawl and the 2 mile run. Man that has been a long time ago. '77 to '80, 54 sit ups in one minute was a max but that's about all I remember.

    That was it, at least back to 1966, crab crawl was more commonly known as the perverted crawl.

    Swinging from vines, dodging the sabretooth, spear throwing, rock tossing, and fire starting.

    The hippo is unpredictable and aggressive with old scars and fresh, deep wounds providing signs of daily fights that are accompanied by much bellowing, neighing and snorting.

    I hated the inverted crawl. The best I could do was drag my then skinny ass down and back and hope I made on time. The other events were no problem.

    The inverted crawl replaced the low crawl circa sometime in 1971 in the APFT.

    Purple,
    The RDJ and inverted crawl is part of our JROTC PT test at our skills meet in Nov. Pass the word to the schools up there por favor. Gonna be a lot of fun.
