I'm pretty excited on how fast things have been moving along. Good luck to everyone with the Pft1 coming up. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Oh one more thing. Even though there was a posting saying the Pft1 step test was replaced by the 1.5m run, it wasn't. I had to do the step test today.
    Congrats but just bear in mind that medicals have to be reviewed and signed off on by medical personnel at MHC.

The test is not given to you by any federal employees, it is done at a local third party facility. The instructor just puts in the cd and hits play. It is probably their first time hearing the cd too. My instructor was very helpful and motivational. Always made sure I understood all the rules and pushed me to do as many push ups and sit ups as I could. Remember, they don't know how many you need to pass. On the step test he would always make sure I stayed with the cadence and if he saw me slowing down, he would make sure I kept with pace. Only problem I had, was the instructor didn't know that the center lined counted as a line touch, so I ended up with a lower number on that test. Still had plenty enough to pass even though he only counted the outside lines. I wasn't sure of the rule either, so I really didn't say anything. Also they don't draw blood for the medical test.
      Do the people giving the test make sure you lock your fingers behind your head during the sit-ups? The sit-ups are something I always struggle with.

      Is it at least 20 sit-ups or fail?

        I'm going on 5 five weeks now. It took jade 6 weeks to get the poly date, then another two weeks to take it.

        Enjoy the fast processing right now. Unless I'm missing something, things will probably slow down for all of you 14x applicants.

        As for situps, yes, you have to put your hands behind your head, and you have to do a complete situp until your eblows pass your knees. If you don't complete the minimum amount, then you fail.

          Yeah fingers locked behind your head. And the push ups, sit ups, side steps and lift test are in a point system. Within the push ups, sit ups and side steps I had already passed the minimum points which is 80. As far as push up the max was 43. I was able to complete 42.

              • Does anybody know what is the minimum push up to past the test? I read that if you don't pass the first part of the exam(push up) you won't continue to the next step. I know I can do everything else except the push up and my appointment is on Saturday. Any help plz!

                    Grats bud. Once my med re-clears (hopefully in a week or so) I'll be right behind you. Hoping LAX is offered to me as well and my EOD is similar to yours. Glad to hear your call came fairly quick.

                      Not really sure how accurate this is but this seems to be the only chart I have seen. From when they recently said there wasn't gonna be a step test, which has yet taken effect.
