I completed two Ironman Race, So what’s next?


Board Jump, Chin Up, Shuttle Run > I will beat you! - I failed this test because I score 1pt for my broad jump!

I completed two Ironman Race, So what’s next? Well I think it will be passing my IPPT. I feel so bad about myself,so ashamed. But why am I writing this? Because I am going to make it a point to pass my IPPT with flying colors.

For readers who are overseas, what is IPPT you may wonder? IPPT is Individual Physical Proficiency Test  

All PES A, B and C1 active NSmen below the age of 45 years for Officers and 40 years for Warrant Officers & below are required to take the IPPT annually.All IPPT eligible NSmen must attempt IPPT once within their IPPT year. 

Fyi, I am a PES A NSmen – meaning I am combat fit :D. So what are test items for IPPT? They consist of Sit Up, Standing Broad Jump, Chin Up, Shuttle Run and 2.4KM Run. And in this case I only score 1pt for my Standing Broad Jump.

And the scoring system is as follow for me in the age group of 25-29

Meaning if I want to get a GOLD for my IPPT, I should be getting at least 4pts for each station and a <10min for a 2.4KM run. I will now start focusing on strength and power training to improve my results.

Do you have any tips on passing IPPT that you would like to share, I would love to hear it in the comments 😀
