much more intensive than the german test. there you only have to master:

11x 10m sprint in 60 seconds
pull up dead hang position for at least 5 seconds
1000m run in 6 min. 30 sec.

Our current test has a shuttle run, pushups, situps and a grip test. The requirements change for men and women and by age. With this one, the standard is the standard, the same for everyone. This doesn't replace the Army test which is a higher standard and involves the 13K ruck march.

I like the idea of a single standard. Same job, same standard.

that's right. if women want to joing the army, they also have to sleep in mud and carry 20kg+ bags! :grin:
