The Navy SEAL Physical Readiness Test PRT

The Navy SEAL Physical Readiness Test (PRT) is conducted in one session in a continuous manner, with no less than two minutes or greater than 15 minutes rest between exercise, and no more than a 30 minute break between the run and swim. Failure to successfully complete all events constitutes failure of the PRT. The PRT events, in order performed, include:

The first event, the pull-ups, has no time limit, whereas the sit-ups and push-ups have a three minute time limit. All three events are performed in clearly designated ways, and points are assigned to each event based on age and the number completed. The 3 mile run and 0.5 mile swim arc timed events, and the time to completion and age are used to assign points. When all events have been completed, points for individual events are summed and an overall score is assigned. Table 15-10 provides a sample PRT test.

Total Points

The greatest number of points for any event is 100; thus the highest possible composite score is 500. The overall score is used for classification purposes: you can fall into one of five categories:

Outstanding

425 - 500

Excellent

350 - 424

Good

275 - 349

Satisfactory

200 - 274

Fail

< 200 or < 40 for any event

In the example in Table 15-10, the overall score was 439; this would be rated as OUTSTANDING. Please refer to COMNAVSPECWARCOMINST 6110.IB for further information with respect to the Navy SEAL PRT and the tables describing points for each event.

Forget Silly Diets-They Don't Work. Weight loss has got to be the most frustrating experience for many people, young and old alike. Eating foods that are just horrible, denying yourself foods you truly love and enjoy. Exercising, even though you absolutely hate exercising, and end up stiff as a board with no results.
