US Army PFT Male Pushup Standards
The Pushup event measures endurance of the chest, shoulder and triceps. When conducting a pushup
your body should form a straight line from shoulders to ankles. A correct pushup is conducted by lowering
your entire body, as a single unit, until your upper arms are at least parallel to the ground. Then, return to
the starting position by raising your entire body until your arms are fully extended. Resting on the ground,
removing hands or feet from the ground, or excessive bending are not allowed.
