The Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) is a 6 event test with a 600 point maximum. It is gender and age neutral. This means that a 22-year old male Soldier and a 40-year old female Soldier earn the same exact number of points for running 2 miles in 14 minutes.
While the test is also MOS neutral ... Soldiers of all military occupational specialties operate on the same point scale ... the Army does anticipate enforcing some minimum requirements for heavy and moderate demand MOS. Soldiers will complete the following 6 events in order, generally in less than 70 minutes:
1) 3-Repetition Maximum Deadlift 2) Standing Power Throw 3) Hand-Release Push-Up 4) Sprint-Drag-Carry 5) Leg Tuck 6) 2-Mile Run
What are the minimum requirements per MOS (MOS breakdown)?
Soldiers in heavy physical demand units or MOS must:
- deadlift 200 lbs for 3 repetitions - throw the 10 pound medicine ball 8.0 meters - do 30 hand-release push-ups - run the sprint-drag-carry in less than 2 minutes and 10 seconds - do 5 leg tucks - run 2 miles in 18 minutes
Soldiers in significant physical demand units or MOS must:
- deadlift 180 lbs for 3 repetitions - throw the 10 pound medicine ball 6.5 meters - do 20 hand-release push-ups - run the sprint-drag-carry in less than 2 minutes and 30 seconds - do 3 leg tucks - run 2 miles in 19 minutes
