Pre-Participatory Sports Physical

Physical Preparation

To make the transition into ROTC, you need to begin preparing yourself by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  Below is a basic 3-week Physical Conditioning Plan that is designed to prime you for our morning Physical Training (PT) sessions. All AFROTC cadets are required to take a physical fitness test (PFT) once a month until they receive a 98 or above. Click here to see the USAF physical fitness scores that must be met at least once a semester.

These exercises can be done throughout the day.  As a tip, instead of doing nothing during a TV commercial, do a set of push-ups or crunches.  Broken up, these sets of exercises can be manageable.  If this workout routine is too aggressive, take out a few sets or do fewer reps per set.  If it is not enough, add more sets or more repetitions to each set.  The key is to always push yourself to do better.

Weight Standards

Weight StandardsTo the right are the weight standards for males and females. Just like the Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) which will be administered once a month, those who score a 98% or higher will only test once a semester, you must meet the Air Force weight standards.  If you are currently not within the regulations, we will work with you to ensure you receive every opportunity to make it within regulations.

The table gives you an idea of the weight chart against which you will be measured. Height is measured from the floor to a plane perpendicular to the top of your head with your head and back against a wall. This height measurement (to quarter inch increment) is then plotted to the male or female weight table. You maximum allowable weight (MAW) is the upper limit.

A cadet above MAW cannot activate his/her scholarship until they are below that upper limit. Cadets are weighed at the start of each term; overweight cadets (above MAW) require extra counseling and monitoring to ensure standards are met.

* For every inch < 58 inches, subtract 2 pounds; for every inch > 80 inches, add 6 pounds.

Grooming Standards

In addition to physical fitness and weight standards, there are Air Force Grooming Standards.  You are not required to be within these standards for NSOP. However it is important that you know the standards and are prepared to meet them when AFROTC starts. Please click on the link below and read over "Grooming and Appearance Standards" (Chapter 3).
