Guys, if my old *** can pass (I'm just 2 years shy of 50) then there's no reason anyone here shouldn't pass this. Just keep training and push yourself a little more each time. Before long you'll be meeting the standards with ease.

    Only thing left now is to report on EOD!
    KEEP it rolling brother..... Was hoping to meet up with you but it appears maxing the whiney PT the CBP has wasn't enough... they DQ'd me on a VA claim?? I'm 47 so and 60% so I can't understand the 20-something that don't pass.. well, carry the Old Dude torch for me!!

      I don't think passing the the PFT has anything to do with age. I'm a female and 26 years and this thing is the hardest thing I've ever had to do nonetheless I will get it done. But I'm sorry about your DQ that really stinks. :-(

      • I think as we age the body has a natural tendency to recover slower and perform less.... if this wasn't true, we would still have football players from the 60s on the field making more money then they ever did back in the old days! I know I'm still fit and nowhere the ability I had in my 20s- you're only 26, tell me what your opinion is once you turn 46... hahaha

          I know, brother. But you still have a few irons in the fire with the 1811 positions, so hopefully you can get picked up by one of those. Maybe we'll get a chance to meet at the 1811 course, because I plan to keep pushing forward in those apps, also.

            I have to agree with PHSeaBee on this one. I'm in good shape, but it takes twice the effort to stay that way than it did when I was 26. It also takes twice the time to recover from injuries at this age.

                              • I jogged on the treadmill the other day the 1.5 miles in 13 minutes on a 1.0 incline. This morning I did 30 second sprints and 30 seconds off 20 times at 9.0 speed on 1.5 incline and 2 sets of 20 pushups. Tomorrow I will do a trial run at the track of the whole PFT2. Yesterday was my last day at work so lets hope I don't blow this. I'm also doing weights with high reps at the moment (yesterday was 80 squats for example)
