FWIW- 23 years, US Army. The ONLY time that I had personal weapons on duty, was when competing in a sanctioned match, and then I had written orders authorizing me to transport and use personal weapons.

My friend read this thread over my shoulder. He looked really depressed, then I told him I'd help, and he started looking scared. I have fun times ahead of me.

Between C3 and myself alone, that's already 30 years of Army experience in this thread!

He's bugging me about how I would do physically. Here's what I can do.
1 mile, 6:50
67 push ups non stop
70 sit ups in 2 minutes
23 pull ups non stop

How's that stack up?

I will add another 21 to that SS! Not bad Kenney, but they have to be regulation PU's and the 2 mile run is the benchmark not the 1. Not for SF, for the military period. My best run was 11.56 in germany, thought i was gonna die at the end, dropped down to my knees and blew Jack Danial's all over the road. Last PT test was 14 something, 20 years later, time to retire!

I just do straight pull. I had marine back at my old military school who taught the fitness program I was a part of. If we tried the butterfly stuff he'd crucified us in a way that would impress Jesus.

14 something is still decent. Fastest I've ever gone was 13:30 in leonardwood. Up here in the clouds in NM, and being fatter now, I run mid 15s. The fat part is changing, hopefully I can pick up the pace some.

Well then you and him have some work to do. If he wants it bad enough, he'll get it. But he has to want it BAD.
