The new Army Combat Readiness Test (ACRT). This new APFT is currently on hold
The old test required completion of three events: two minutes of push-ups, two minutes of sit-ups and a two-mile run.
The new ACRT has five events:
-- 400-meter run assesses upper body muscular endurance and anaerobic power, coordination, speed, and stability
-- Individual movement techniques assess upper and lower body muscular endurance, agility, balance, coordination,
speed and stability
-- Ammo can shuttle sprint assesses total body muscular strength and endurance, agility, coordination, speed,
stability, and power
-- Casualty drag assesses total body muscular strength and endurance, agility, coordination, speed, stability, and
-- Agility sprint assesses lower body anaerobic power, speed and power
In order to develop these tests, PRT Program leaders will look both inside and outside the Army for subject-matter
experts to help develop a test which is gender neutral and age specific.
