New Equipment Coming to the US Army for New Fitness Tests

The United States Army has been trying to update their fitness test and standards for many years now. The new test is rapidly rolling down the pipeline and with it comes new equipment.

Military.com has the story.

60 battalions are receiving the new equipment as an expanded BETA test of the standards. The Army needs to check injury rates and other complications live across a wide portion of the force.

Completion of this larger test will give the Army the data it needs to finalize pass/fail requirements.
