17 - 21 year old males in the US Army are required to do a MINIMUM of 42 pushups to pass their annual fitness test.

Females of the same age group must do 19 to pass their test.

Men must run two miles in 15:54 while women can pass with an 18:54 run.

There must be one standard that is the current male standard. Unfortunately that is going to wash out of the Army the vast majority of women. Too bad, so sad.

I believe the solution of the Navy to this was basically to make their PT test a huge continuum.
