Physical Screening Tests

seal fit virtual coach

Physically prepare to the best of your ability in advance of
BUD/S. If you arrive already making Competitive Scores versus Minimum
Standards, you’ll be in a much better position to
successfully complete training and become a Navy SEAL.

The Physical Screening Test, or PST, is designed to test your
overall physical readiness to participate in the rigorous Naval Special
Warfare or Special Operations training pipelines.

Remember, everyone that has entered BUD/S
passed the PST to get there, and that more than half of them
didn’t finish….

ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE

GET STRONGER

The following are the points of
performance for each exercise as well as the minimum scores for SEAL,
SWCC, EOD,
and Fleet Diver.

Points of Performance

Swim

You must perform the test using either a Side Stroke or a Breast Stroke.

Push-ups

Must be performed with a straight back and feet and
hands in contact with the deck at all times.  No slouching
allowed; proper form must be strictly maintained.

Sit-ups

Sit on the floor with your knees bent approximately 90 degrees.
Cross your arms in front of you with fingertips touching your
shoulders.  Exercise through the full range of motion.
Again, proper form must be strictly maintained.

Pull-ups

Grip pull-up bar with PALMS FACING AWAY FROM YOU. Hands
are to be shoulder width apart. Do not swing, kick, or bicycle to
assist. Make sure you go all the way up (chin above bar) then ALL THE
WAY DOWN.
