Good thing I've never had a problem with the test, I got an Excellent Medium on the last one. What's also sad is that people who CAN pass the PRT portion of the test, but because they register as "overweight" on the BCA are still being kicked out, just like that MA1 guy.

    I hope to be a PT God one day like you! ray2 :hail

    Don't worry, you'll get your chance. I spoke with an individual who was invited to give their input at a meeting about a new PT test for the Navy. They're apparently drooling over the current AF version and want to implement something similar.
    Perfect is the enemy of good enough.
    The pursuit of excellence only for the sake of achieving excellence is a waste:
    Time and energy spent pursuing excellence in one area is
    time and energy that could have been used to improve in another area.

    PT GOD usually posts satire, but this is spot on.

As far as leave goes, you dont deserve leave or weekends unless you are an elite athlete like myself.

    I hope this will motivate my troops to strive for the rock hard 8 pack abs that I have and show them on an hourly basis, but can I get in trouble for not approving their leave or giving them days off, or not letting them go to lunch?

    I laughed when I read this. A couple years back my Airmen/NCOs were complaining my 3x week PT was hard. Trust me, it wasn't. At most a 2 mile run with some situps and pushups.

    Well after all the complaining, I asked my Army buddy if we could do PT with his unit for a week. He thought it would be a good cultural mix. Plus, he promised not to kill any of my Airmen. :lol:

    After a week of formation runs, calisthenics, and gorilla drills in the mud...they didn't complain anymore.

    Re: Now that i'm a Supervisor, I have my 8 troops doing PT every morning and afternoo

    so one of my troops pulled up limp this morning during our daily 5K, then that little prick went to the shirt to complain how I make him run a 5K every morning, then lift weights, then go to lunch, THEN do aerobics classes as the gym, THEN run another 2 miles before going home...he claims he wants to learn his job and do his CDCs..screw all that..that'll wont even get you a 3 EPR in my book.

    He blames me for his shin splints and hurting back, saying I will cause him to fail the PT Test tomorrow...what a load of crap.

    I went to see the first shirt and right in the middle of him yelling at me about not having this kids CDC's ordered yet...i was like BAM and ripped off my shirt and started flexing like a 130lb arnold all over that office...yea..he ran out...damn right he did...

    I wish all i had to do was rip off my shirt and flex my abs to intimidate my 1st shirt. Would have gotten me out of quite a few LOCs.
