Military fitness check

How often does the military check the fitness of soldiers, especially if they are part time or just a weekend soldier? Do they trust that their spldiers will be able to maintain fitness without much oversight? I know Part time SOF are expected to maintain their fitness until they are called up.

    I was army reserves for a bit, in an non-deployable medical unit, then a psyops unit.

    Medical unit didnt really care, they did a pt test about once a year, forged paperwork for battalion to show passing numbers, and phoned it in hard

    psyops did pt tests every 3 months or so, and if you failed they constantly called you during the month to excercise and had you do pt tests every month to show improvement or until you were passing again.

    In short, depends on the unit, like everything in the military

      Interesting that psyops are more prone for physical maintenance than medical

      Fact is most of the military probably can't pass a pt test if it was held to exact standards of locking out arms and sitting all the way up. The running part was harder to fake. (keep in mind 90% of it are either POGs or combat dudes who are in staff roles) Infantry units usually ran a tight ship. Armor is notorious for being fat.
      They hold bogus pt tests or just outright fake the paperwork.
      COVID was the nail in the coffin for PT in the military.

    You are required to have a passing ACFT score per FY. However most Reserve/Guard units conduct a PT test every 6 months.

    I'm in a guard unit in an SF support battalion. We do the ACFT pretty frequently. We have one scheduled already but we're about to do one very soon that they dropped on us very short notice for an "integrity check". I think most units are required to do only 2 graded ACFTS per year but my unit loves them and it feels like we do one every other drill.

      Are those SF units part time or full time?

        It's a guard unit like any other. Meaning most of our battalion are M-day part timers. Me and a decent chunk are full timers on either ADOS or AGR orders.
        The SF dudes themselves even when not on full time orders definitely work more than a typical guardsmen in a conventional unit. They're always training.

          Also forgot the techs as part of the full timers. Next time I'll wait a little before posting.

    90% of USAF women had this body shape when I was in. I wish I had stayed in longer.

    When I was in the reserves I don't really remember having to do any tests, we were lugging artillery around though so if you are lacking it was pretty obvious. Full time army though we had them every 6 months, but I usually did some PT a couple of times a week with the platoon to make sure everyone was ticking along ok, nothing horrendously strenuous but it was essentially free, gave everyone something to do and there was never a problem with my guys passing.
    That'll depend on your unit though, we were infantry and comms so lugging shit around was pretty important you can function under some stress, along with breaking up the mundane stuff like doing technical servicing, lessons and instruction that can be kind of dull. So a beach run or a team weight and gym session got people outside and healthy

    Subjective to your branch, base, and shop.

    The military is only as monolithic as we all get a pay check.

    Unironic answer is the USAF is the most unforgiving on it's PT tests because its a force manning tool, because they can always get more bodies. The closer you get to retirement, the harder they fricking PT you. I've seen dudes at 15 years get one fail, fail again before their medical exam, and have the separation process start.

    Leadership in the USAF unironically hates all maintainers and security forces. I will always ensure that I walk across the BX shopping center to engage in maximum salutes. If I see your rank, I will chase you down, you will salute. I will engage with you at every fricking moment and turn that I can, just to grate at your day.

    I will ask about non existent meetings to you and your support staff. I will ask about the status of the war readiness kits and make sure you are there on the weekend overseeing the inventory with all of us.

      That’s not surprising. The Air Force gets the most funding while also maintaining their shit at times

      firstly, based. Frick officers.
      secondly, I always laugh at everyone freaking out about PT standards in the Air Force. Yeah, big blue are nazis about PT failures but if you can't even do 33 push ups, 40 sit ups, and a mile and a half run in under 14 minutes then you deserve to get the boot. Easiest shit in the world, and that's not even counting all the new shit we get to do now.

        It’s pretty easy if you’re able to maintain fitness

            Yes, but thats for active duty/full time soldiers. Soldier that have part time shit may be more neglectful in regards to their fitness if there is barely oversight.

    >Pic related. I had a dream that woman led my around by grabbing my wiener. It felt awesome. And I was actually worried, because I was still in at the time, and I had no idea what was about to happen. When I woke it apparently I was having sex with a girl in my sleep. It was the best morning I ever had.

    I worked at an I&I station (reserves base). Those boys are 50/50 3rd class fitness/failures. About 50/50 if held accountable self-improve. Some don't, and their leadership will have to explain them. I've never seen a reservist kicked out due to the lengthy process. These a frick time for them to self improve. Most of the time their real world skills rise to the top when the shit hits the fan.

    I recently got out, and with a finally stabilized life I'm working out way way way more than when I was in. I can't wait to hit my next goals

    Your section leader has you all go outside, makes sure you haven't committed suicide the previous night for the third time. Then you do whatever he says.
