Royal Marines Fitness Test Challenge

I was just reading through some old fitness-related emails from a colleague of mine, Ryan Murdock.. and I found one on this idea of a Royal Marines Fitness Test Challenge.

From the further research I did, it looks like this is called the PJFT+ test. Here’s what it consists of:

  • 20 burpees
  • rest for 10 seconds
  • 20 sit ups
  • 20 push ups
  • 60 second plank

Potential recruits are expected to complete the circuit three times.

The Challenge is supposed to test your functional fitness.

As the email I got this idea from mentioned, it actually doesn’t seem all that functional.

It’s okay, but honestly it could be improved.

A better option might be something like the Warrior Zero Bodyweight Challenge, where you do a series of three “functional fitness” Challenges, each progressively harder than the next… and it much more dials in on things like bodyweight strength, endurance, core, proper movement, etc.

If you are interested in taking the full Challenge, check out Warrior Zero Bodyweight at the link below:

…and let me know how you do, okay?
