New Air Force Male PT Standards 2023

The United States Air Force PT Male Standards refer to the physical fitness requirements for male Air Force members to pass Air Force PT.

The Air Force continuously evaluates and updates its physical fitness (PT) standards to ensure the health, fitness, and readiness of its airmen.

PT standards evolve to match modern understandings of fitness and the specific needs of the service.

To provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information about the New Air Force Male PT Standards, you should refer to the official US Air Force website or contact your unit’s Physical Training Leader (PTL) or a local base fitness center.

  • There is a requirement to score a minimum of 75 points to pass the Air Force PT test for male members based on age.
  • Below are the minimum requirements for each exercise needed to score 75 points.

See the comprehensive New Air Force PT Standards.

  • Age Categories: PT standards usually vary by age, with different expectations for younger and older airmen.
  • Regular Testing: Airmen are traditionally tested twice a year, although this frequency and the exemptions available can vary.
  • Preparation: It’s crucial for airmen to train regularly, not just in the lead-up to a test. Regular fitness not only ensures they can pass the PT test but also fulfill their duties effectively and maintain good health.
