Alright, well, thanks everyone for your help and I believe I have all the information I need. Although, if you think of anything else that would assist me, go ahead and let me know.

What is the maximum PFT score? I know situps is 100, but none of the others.

That's more a personal thing, the mind games are what you make of them, nothing more.

RecruitWalterUSMC,

I hope you don't smoke cos you're going to have a hard time at boot camp if you do. No smoking allowed.

I'd say start jogging and doing push ups every alternately evey other day, that's how they did it when I was in the service.

Also try walking everywhere as much as you can, to get yourself use to the road marches, those 15 mile road marches kill.

I saw a post that advised you to run with a backpack, try not to do that if you have to, too much of it can damage your knees. However you can walk with a backpack. I say start hiking with a full pack. But, just start by walking, you should gradually ease youreself into it. Too much too soon can cause injury and ruin your military career.

100 points = 100 Crunches (Changed from Situps)
100 POints = 20 Pullups
100 points = 18:00 Run

300 points

Follow the Link I left above, it is the entire Marine Corps Order for PFT.

Well i think no matter how hard you may train before your basics, it's never enough. It's going to be tougher than you may imagine..
But during basics, it's to your limits. Or even beyond. That's what is called training.. or being trained to be a soldier. Nope, you can't train by yourself.

When you enter boot camp in with the appropriate level of physical fitness it helps with the total stress that you have to endure since it minimises one of the elements that most people are tested on when they join.
