    hey that fitness test is so easy man don't sweat it, if you can do push ups and sit ups you'll be fine. and the step test is easy too. You have almost a week if your not that active then practice doing push ups and sit ups, go to a gym they have like a step thing there you can practice on.

      Its not tough. If you are in shape, it will be a piece of cake. If not, I would recommend not only practicing push ups and sit ups, but get some cardio in as well. The step test is at the end, so after you have given it your all on the previous tests (side step, push ups, sit ups, and lift & carry), it can start to weigh on your legs. But just push to the end. You will do great! Good luck!

        Like the others said, it's pretty simple. My adrenaline kicked in and I did more sit ups and push up than I ever had when I practiced it. I just got a milk crate and would do the step test a few times a week. Just remember it's 5 minutes of your life, so just keep pushing through. Your muscles do start to tighten up so make sure to stretch.

              Hey USCG, I'm seeing that you took the poly graph a second time. I am kind of going through the same thing now, so what happened the second time around? Got mine scheduled for Friday

                  • Hey i will be having my fitness/medical on friday. I am near borderline in regards to passing the test on my sit ups and the step test when I do them at home. My question is do you guys recommend doing the test again a day before or just let my body rest. I will be doing sit ups, and step test everyday but not sure if I should do it on Thursday. Also what should I eat before the test. My test is at 10:00 in the morning.

                    • I know this will probably be looked as a "stupid" question but for those who took the pft 1/medical are we suppose to come dressed in our gym gear ?

                      • Yes, although you can change as well. I went in track pants and a hoodie.

                            That sounds right. Is it standard to just do the physical/medical at a local walk in clinic? That's basically where mine are scheduled. Seems odd. Maybe that's part of speeding up the process. Not making a singular date and having everyone travel.

                            Submitted my e-qip Saturday night. Just got scheduled for medical on 8/27/14.

                              The first time I thought I was gonna fail, cause the guy took all day and kept talking to me like I was a dirt bag. So when all was said and done he said inconclusive and rescheduled me (after an awesome 8 hour day). The next Poly was much different, the guy was nicer to me and in general the feeling was much different. He asked me a few of the same questions as before, and when he saw that I was still answering all the questions the exact same as the previous interview, he said that we were done and he was recommending that I pass. This interview only took about 3 or 4 hours and was much better of an experience. Im sure when the guy sees that you are staying consistent with your answers you will be all good. Good Luck!
