Test Your Physical Fitness With This PFT Benchmark Workout

Thanks to Candidate X who graduated in the summer of 2016 for this benchmark PFT workout.

“There was a MARSOC Captain I met after graduating OCS and he took my OSS through, what he called, a good Benchmark PFT. I would have to agree. It’s very simple, but the cumulative loading effect is what makes this difficult.”

Benchmark PFT

  1. 5 pull-ups (kip when you can no longer do a correct USMC pull-up)
  2. 10 push-ups
  3. 15 air squats
  4. You continue the circuit for 20 minutes, with no rest periods.

The MARSOC Captain got 26 complete circuits for a benchmark. Personally, I got 21.

  1. Pretty solid workout there. Could be a good workout if you have no equipment too. I’ve done similar workouts using monkey bars on a playground when I didn’t have a gym to go to.
