USMC PFT Score Charts

USMC PFT Score Charts

Since 2015, the Marine Corps has been in research and change mode with its physical training and testing protocol. Now, in 2019, many of these changes have been implemented.

There has been a range of changes -- adding age brackets, pull-ups and the flexed arm hang; instituting tougher maximum scoring and higher standards for minimum scoring; and adding the option to replace pull-ups with push-ups. Keep in mind that you can't get full marks if you choose push-ups.

On Jan. 1, 2020, Marines will be able to choose to replace crunches with the plank pose. To be ready, start planking now as the max scores will require holding the pose for more than four minutes.

The following are the max/min score charts for both male and female Marines for each PFT event.

The PFT has three events: pull-ups or pushups, abdominal crunches and a three-mile run. All PFT events will be conducted in a single session, not to exceed two hours in duration. Movement of Marines from one event to the next should allow adequate time to recover, stretch and drink water.
