It is important for your Army soldier to try to meet and exceed the minimum PT standards before he gets to basic training. He will have a much easier time in training if he is already physically fit when he arrives.

Note:   If he continues on to other Army schools such as RASP (Ranger Assessment and Selection Program), chin-ups may also be a part of the PT test.
