The test measures their muscular strength, cardiorespiratory endurance, and lower and upper body strength. The four-part test includes the standing long jump, seated power throw, strength deadlift and interval aerobic run. Afterward, the recruits partook in weapons training demonstrations, learning about the M4 carbine and the M249 light machine gun. (U.S. Army National Guard photo by Staff Sgt. Lisa M. Sadler)
