Army Combat Fitness Test Information and Resources

The Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) is the newly-developed fitness test that will replace the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT). The ACFT will consist of six events: 3-Repetition Maximum Deadlift (MDL), Standing Power Throw (SPT), Hand Release Push-up (HRP), Sprint-Drag-Carry (SDC), Leg Tuck (LTK), and 2-Mile Run (2MR). Scoring for the ACFT will be age and gender neutral. Standards for the ACFT will correspond to each Soldier's respective MOS physical demand category - moderate (gold), significant (gray), or heavy (black).

Implementation Timeline

The general timeline for ACFT implementation is as follows. For full information, refer to HQDA EXORD 219-18.

Phase 1 - Initial Operational Capability (IOC): FY 19 (1 October 2018)

The ACFT will be field tested at 61 battalion-sized units (all Regular Army) and one Army command headquarters. Data and lessons learned from the field tests will direct adjustments to the standards and administration procedures leading to Phase 2.

Phase 2 - Full Operational Capability - Initial (FOC-Initial): FY 20 (1 October 2019)

The ACFT will be implemented Army-wide, with the legacy APFT continued for record test purposes. COMPO 1 (Regular Army) units will conduct the ACFT twice; COMPO 2 and 3 units (Army National Guard/Army Reserve) will conduct the ACFT once. During this time, the ACFT will also be incorporated into applicable regulations, publications, forms, records, and school courses.

Phase 3 - Full Operational Capability (FOC): FY 21 (1 October 2020)

The ACFT is adopted as the Army test of record. Policy regarding physical profiles and alternate events developed during the field tests will be published no later than 1 October 2020.
