What Your Annual Physical Training Test Actually Looks Like

Annual PT tests are kind of a joke. If you’ve spent any amount of time in the military at all, then you know exactly what this video is about.

“0500 formation outside of the barracks, be in PT gear, we’re running a PFT.” It’s the words everyone hates to hear at evening formation coming from your company commander. We all know the Staff NCO’s are going to cheat, the First Sergeant is leaving directly after sit ups for a “meeting” and the Company Commander won’t even show up. If you’re lucky, maybe your platoon commanders will show up and put out, but probably not.

Everyone hates the PT test, and this video from Terminal Boots is a perfect representation of how every PT test happens.
