Definitely work on your pullups. just keep doing them all the time. Whenever you see a pullup bar, just knock out a few. doing pullups is the best way to get better. also, try to work on that three mile time. the top score for the 3 mile on the Marine Corps PFT is 18 minutes. you want to be as close to that as you can.

Alright Chyl, read that post from Grimmy very carefully. There is gold in it. Your PT scores are not bad, not great but not bad. The next task you have is to do what Grimmy said. Think about what you want from your time in the service. Give it some thought and post any questions about different jobs that you might have up here and we'll help you sort it out. When you have decided what you want you need to have five choices. They are as follows...

1. Dream job
2-4 A job you would like/want
5. The bare minimum job you would accept.

The reasons for this are that when you go to MEPS it doesn't matter what the recruiter might tell you about availability. The day you go you will talk to a career counselor and he will look on the CPU and see in real time what the needs of the service are that day and you need to know what you want and what is the minimum you will accept BEFORE or they will push/cajole/convince/influence/screw you into something you will be stuck with for the duration.

So take your time. Ask questions as you need to and when you have your five post them up in order of preference. There is no time limit for this task.

Just a thought here but would running up a few flights of stairs or in sand help him any ?

Of course, there is a good running plan for him that he'll receive shortly but any running will help and in the sand won't hurt at all. The problem with stairs is that unless you've got a long run of them like in a stadium its hard to get a long cycle of sprinting, landings and all that.

How important his PT scores will be is going to be determined in great part by the answers to his current task, combat arms making them all the more important as certain schools require a higher PT score for entry let alone graduation... ie airborne, ranger, SF...

Attention to detail.


Drill Instructor is NOT an MOS.

Now take your time and do this right. Quit basing this off movies and posters look on the internet and see what is available. If you don't know where to look let us know and we'll point you in the right direction.

This isn't baseball, you don't get three strikes.

Good recovery.

Next step is to take the ASVAB. Not the practice test but the real deal. Those line scores will determine which jobs you qualify for. If you have not taken it that is your next task. If you have taken it post up your line scores not just the GT... all of 'em.

I concur with Grimmy. I would say #3 and #4 is what you should go with.
