New way to measure up: Air Force's revamped fitness tests start in

(For a look at some of the fitness charts, and a link to more charts
and other information from the Air Force Link Web site, click here.)

ARLINGTON, Va. ó Lace up those sneakers, blue-suiters. The Air Force
has released the new scoring charts that will be used when the service
starts its ramped-up fitness testing in January.

The new test, which was announced by Air Force Chief of Staff Gen.
John Jumper this summer, abandons for most the serviceís bicycle test
in favor of a 1.5 miles run, sit-ups, push-ups and a waist

The test is based on a 100-point scale, with the run counting for 50
points and push-ups and sit-ups 10 points each.

The final 30 points is determined by an airmanís waist measurement,
which the Air Force is using to meet the Defense Departmentís 2002
directive that requires each service to have standards based on body
