    Thank you for the info though. that's another part that I'm wondering how it's done, it says it's based on a scoring system, is it 0s and 1s? or what?
    I couldn't find the link for the score sheet either, but I have a copy from when I did mine. Ill have to track that puppy down. But it is minimum of 12 push ups, 20 (I believe) situps in a minute or less. 7 line touches in 10 seconds, 60 seconds to complete 8 lift and lower cycles with a 50lb crate (less time the better score) and 5 minute steptest on a12'' step at 120 bpm.

          • I've been getting emails from DHS about fitness tips (how to improve your push ups, how to improve your run, etc) for the past few months. You guys asking about the PFT2 may want to check your spam or junk mail folder to make sure you didn't miss or not read any of the correspondence they are sending out.

            I started going to the gym again every day after work in about November and for giggles did push ups after a chest/triceps/shoulder workout one day to see how many I could do and still had enough energy left to do 27 in a minute.

            To those having problems doing push-ups, focus on your form and your breathing! Get those down and the number you can do will increase over time, and once you have your numbers up be sure to maintain your form and remember to keep breathing properly. Holding your breath doing any exercise is the probably the single dumbest thing you can do because you're essentially working against your own body. Muscles need oxygen to expand and work properly and holding your breath is robbing your body of oxygen, which results in poor performance. Just like during running or swimming, your breathing should be steady and relaxed (ever notice how if you don't time your breathing properly during running you get cramps in your sides?) and not labored, nor frantic.

            During push-ups, you want to breath in when you go down (ie. during the easy part of the exercise) or as you're going down, and you want to exhale as you're coming back up (during the hard part of the movement). The same principle applies when bench pressing. The easy part of the bench press is bringing the bar off the rack to your chest (inhale), and as you're using all your strength to get the weight off you, when you're pushing it up, you exhale.

            If any of you have any questions about form, or exercise stuff, pm me. I've been working out since I was 14 or 15, ran/supervised/managed the weight room during my community college days (got paid to work out for 2-3 hours a day and spot people), and got certified back then to be an aerobics instructor by one of the national accreditation agencies (NDEITA I believe).

                never been big on push ups. I am aware that I will have a hard time at the academy if I ever get there unless I practice a lot

                Thanks for the info though

                  So all I need a score greater than 0 in each event on pft1 and I am good to go?
