In addition, the SRT pilot includes three different levels of staff support and training equipment to prepare for the test. Not surprisingly, Abrams said, those with full-time strength coaches and other professionals had the best outcomes. Both tests are designed to measure multiple domains of fitness in ways that approximate combat.
For instance, the ACRT gauges muscular power with a backward medicine ball throw. To test muscular endurance, the SRT requires stacking sandbags on the back of a truck. But there is some overlap, like an equipment drag and, of course, a run. If soldiers are taking two tests for different purposes, despite measuring similar things, how can the Army justify that? Remedial options may end up in the final test or tests, Abrams said.
But that could create some confusion, Dailey said.
If the APFT is a health test, alternates are necessary to continue gauging health. But a combat fitness test is a different story. If you think about it, he added, the Army has been giving a pass to soldiers on profile, while punishing those who actually take the test and come up short. So where does that leave the APFT? So while a gender-neutral occupational test is a step forward in preparing soldiers for combat, the Army still has to look at troops as employees whose health care bills they are covering.
Regardless of how long basic training ends up being or which fitness test the service settles on, the changes will cost money.
