Happy Veterans Day!  Thank you soldiers, for protecting us and thank you soldiers’ families for holding down the fort at home so your loved one(s) can serve.

My dad was in the Air Force, so in honor of him and the day, I thought I’d see what the physical requirements are to be in that branch.  Here they are (from Military.com):

Males Run (2 miles) Run (1.5 mile) Push-ups Sit-ups Pull-ups
Liberator (minimum graduation standard) 16:45 min. 11:57 min. 45 50 0
Thunderbolt (honor graduate standard) 14:15 min. 8:55 min. 62 70 4
Warhawk (extraordinary – highest standard) 13:30 min. 8:08 min. 75 80 10

Females

Liberator (minimum graduation standard) 19:45 min. 13:56 min. 27 50 0
Thunderbolt (honor graduate standard) 16:00 min. 11:33 min. 37 60 2
Warhawk (extraordinary –highest standard) 15:00 min. 10:55 min. 40 75 5

Right.  I don’t think I will be joining the military anytime soon.  But I will try out this next circuit workout:
