Army APFT Calculator
Two big factors in getting promoted in the Army are your APFT score and your height/weight or body fat percentage. Without passing these crucial parts, you will never get promoted. Use the calculator below to calculate your APFT score and your body fat percentage. After that, head on over to the APFT Promotion Points post for more information on the APFT and how important it is if you plan on getting promoted in the Army.
Army Height and Weight Standards
The body fat calculator is only necessary if you do not meet the necessary height and weight standards. Check the chart below to see where you should be in terms of weight. There are different weights for males and females. Find the column that corresponds to your gender and age, and match it to the row listing your height in inches. This will give you a minimum weight and a maximum weight.
If you do not fall into the acceptable range for your gender, height, and weight; below is the body fat percentage standards.
