    Why would anyone who knows they are going to fail the PT Test...take it

    DISCLAIMER: I'm only kidding...i dont recommend anyone do this...unless its true..and you might die..then I highly recommend you go to your PCM..lol

    Below is the first 2 questions on the mandator PT questionaire

    FITNESS SCREENING QUESTIONNAIRE
    1. Do you have a health condition not addressed in a Physical Profile (AF Form 422) that participating in
    the PT program/testing could aggravate or that would preclude your safety?
    GYes Stop here; notify your Unit Fitness Program Manager (FPM) and contact PCM.
    GNo Proceed to next question.
    2. Do you have any of the following?
    - Chest discomfort with exertion
    - Unusual shortness of breath
    - Dizziness, fainting, blackouts
    GYes Stop here; notify your UFPM and contact your Primary Care Manager (PCM)


    NOW..if your fat bag'o donuts...or just can't run worth a darn....its a get out of a jail free card right?

    Question 1, answer Yes...go to PCM..tell them "i'm not on a waiver but I'm in such horrible shape I might die of a heart attack if I run" Fair enough right...

    Question 2...answer yes...if your fat and/or dont run or both...yes..it is UNUSUAL for you to have shortness of breath..beacuse normally you just sit on your fat behind...so...Run to the PT test..you'll be short of breath..it will be unusual for you...bam..check yes..

    NO TEST FOR YOU!!!!

    Seriously...its medical/safety...what can anyone do to you?

    Playing Devil's Advocate for a moment, what they can probably do to you is after a "reasonable" amount of time to correct your problem, if you're still unable to test, you're not able to meet air force standards and here is your civilian below the zone.

    do you REALLY need to start 10 new threads on topics that have already been beaten to death?

    Hate to inject reason into your theory... but if you are not current, you do not meet standards, and will still get a referal EPR. So your plan ain't worth shit.

    The point of the questionare is to ensure that you aren't showing any danger indicators before you test. If you do, you go to the doc, get checked out, and they determine if you test or not. At most, you'd gain a week or two before you had to test (presuming you are cleared by the doc).

    At a minimum, they can measure/weigh anyone, so they could make your entire test score based on that if you weren't physically able to do anything else. I can't imagine wanting that, especially if you are worried about passing in the first place.

    In the end, I think you'd wind up wasting the doc's time and possibly shooting yourself in the foot if you did this.
