Cooper Institute Physical Fitness Norms

I used to work with a gentleman named Mark.  Mark was approximately 50 years old.

Mark is a physical fitness fanatic.  He served in the mid-East twice in the last decade or so.

I once asked him how many push-ups he could do.

He said, "90."

I told him that he was way "off chart" for his age group.

Part of DA Form 705

He replied that he does not pay much attention to charts or age groups.  He said that he had been in several "situations" and nobody had ever stopped the action to ask him how old he was.

That is a healthy attitude.
