To entertain his fans, Soueid decided to film himself completing the challenge. Below, a break down of what the US Marine Corps Physical Fitness Test consists of.
3 physical exercises
Contenders must do a minimum of5 pulls ups to pass the test and a maximum of 25 to get a perfect score.
The second part of the test consists of doing crunches. But these aren’t just regular crunches, the lower back has to touch the floor and hands must be clasped on the upper arm between the elbow and shoulder. Contenders must complete a minimum 70 crunches and 110 crunches maximum to get the most points. After completing this part, Soueid admits that, ‘That was a lot harder than expected.’
This is the last and final test. Contenders must complete a 3-mile run in 27 minutes in order to pass and in 18 minutes to get a perfect score.
