Air Force Pt Test over 60 (Standards & Charts)

For airmen over the age of 60, the new air force pt standards consist of three tests: a standard 1.5-mile run, sit-ups, and push-ups. In the event they are unable to complete these tests, they can choose alternative tests, which are as follows:

  • 1.5-mile run or 20-meter HAMR (high aerobic multi-shuttle run)
  • Hand release push-ups
  • Cross-legged reverse crunches or planks

The airmen must complete the 2-mile run in less than 19 minutes and 48 seconds, twelve sit-ups in one minute, and five push-ups in one minute. However, this might change depending on the age and gender of the airmen.

The minimum standards for the Air Force PT test by gender are listed below; this means the minimum points required to pass this test if you are over the age of 60.

Airmen over 60 should maintain their cardiovascular health and strengthen their core and upper body to perform well in the air force pt test. 

No matter how old a service member is, the Air Force PT test is essential to keeping them in good physical shape and proactive. So, the best way to prepare for the test is to use a wide range of exercises and training methods to build strength, endurance, and flexibility.

A balanced diet and sufficient rest are essential for physical fitness. By prioritizing fitness, service members can improve their overall health and be better able to do their jobs.
