thats what i do now and in order to get 300 on the PT test i have to be able to do
100 pushups in 2min - me 75
100 situps in 2min - me over 100
2 mile run 12 min - me 17:30(took 4 months off cardio for bulk was at a 6min mile)
3 pull ups - me 20(want to be able to do 30
This is not correct.
Male Ages 17-21
for a 300 on the APFT:
13:00 2 mile run.
There are no pullups on the APFT.
If you want to be SF you need to be able to run a lot, and ruck march a lot. Don't even worry about pushups or situps, those will go up if you are rucking and running.
IIRC there is a timed 6 mile run in Selection, then you run a PT test like an hour later.
FYI you will never have to do 100 of anything to get a 300 on the APFT.
And it might be damn near impossible to do 100 situps in 2 minutes anyway...

If you are trying to just max the APFT just do each day 5 sets 50 pushups, 50 crunches in the morning and the same at night mon-fri. As for running the 2 mile; jog mon, wed, fri 4 miles each and ride a bike tue, thu at least 10 miles each. This will make you easily max the APFT in 2 months. I know this because I got a bunch of fatasses to do this and they maxed the APFT in 2 months.
As for Selection; Ruck Tue, Thu, Sat 6-12 miles vary it with 45-75lb ruck. At the end of the ruck course do 5 sets of 10 ruck squats. This is what my buddy did to pass selection. You also got to be good at land nav and have some heart. Because you will be getting destroyed physically and mentally.
Other than that Army PT is easy to pass. The only bad thing about it is they still do the 19th century tape test that is garbage and Ive seen some big guys fail that even though they are just muscular.
