The ACFT is replacing the 39-year-old Army Physical Fitness Test and will become the Army physical test of record no later than October 2020. Each of the 6 events highlight fitness components that can be applied to common soldier tasks. The six-event test includes:
The 6 event test includes:
3 Repetition Maximum Deadlift

“This test was developed in this way to better predict a Soldier’s readiness for the demands of the modern-day battlefield and to validate that the soldier is prepared for combat.”
