If you followed the link here after reading Stew Smith’s full-length article, you already know most trainees facing a physical fitness test for military, law enforcement, or other tactical applications fail because of the same short list of mistakes.

- Continuing to do daily PT

- Not pacing yourself
- You can’t do pull ups
- Burning out on sit ups
- Not eating optimally
- Nerves on test day
