Gauge your fitness level

Find out if you're as fit as a World War II soldier.

Have men these days 'gone soft?' Is our generation less manly than past generations? Are we less tough than our grandfathers? Of course it's hard to quantify 'toughness.' But there is one area where we can definitively say we've slipped - the Army fitness test isn't as hard as it used to be.

The US Army first introduced a formal fitness test to the troops in 1942. To get the men in fighting shape, the Army implemented a systematic physical development program as part of the Combat Basic Training course. The test included squat jumps, sit-ups, pull-ups, push-ups, and a 300 yard run.
