This publication supplements the Army’s doctrine for the physical testing of Soldiers. It presents a summary of exercise and equipment options and performance optimization techniques.

Chapter 1, Test Standards, covers test administration, event standards, grading, scoring, equipment requirements, and the modified Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT MOD).

Chapter 2, Drills and Exercises, contains the Preparation and Recovery Drills and a selection of “top three” exercises from other drills that support ACFT-specific training. Video support is available online at www.army.mil/acft. Accessing these videos online allows Soldiers to quickly understand and perform the exercises safely, wherever they train.

Appendix A, ACFT Testing Equipment and Field Standards, provides the standards and specifications for the ACFT. ACFT field standards are being developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to meet the requirements for unit and individual testing.
