Do you have a chart to show us what to shoot for?

Susan,

Originally we did post numbers to shoot for in the PFT, but I decided to take those numbers down. The PFT should be a measuring tool for evaluating where you are today against where you were before. This fits in with the TMFS training philosophy you can read in the article on the right sidebar.

Numbers are arbitrary. What may be good for one person could be impossible (or ridiculously easy) for another. Nevertheless, some general guidelines for advanced performance might be:

Men/Women

Pull-ups: 20/8
Sit-ups: 50+/35+
Push-ups: 50+/35+
Run: 1.5 miles or further

You can adjust down from these numbers to find intermediate and basic levels.
