    Well, neither can 55% of female marines in boot camp.

    "WASHINGTON -- More than half of female Marines in boot camp can't do three pullups, the minimum standard that was supposed to take effect with the new year, prompting the Marine Corps to delay the requirement, part of the process of equalizing physical standards to integrate women into combat jobs. "

    While playing hockey I could do about 15-25 pull ups and about 7-10 chin ups. Now about a bit less. Don't work out as much.

    I am a Level 1 Cert Crossfit trainer and I can tell you first hand that a "strict" chin over bar or worst yet a chest to bar is very hard for most women to perform. I have no clue what they use as a standard in the military, but, I am confident they don't allow kipping or elastic band assist like we do.

    3 pullups (palms facing inward) is WAY fucking easy.

    Those marine bitches should have to do at least 3 chinups (palms facing outwards).

    Chinups require back and triceps, chinups are mostly bicep.


    If bitches want to do an equal job as men, bitches should be require to do AN EQUAL JOB AS MEN. How many chinups must a male complete?

    Because the change is being put off, women will be able to choose which test of upper-body strength they will be graded on in their annual physical fitness test. Their choices:

    • Pullups, with three the minimum. Three is also the minimum for male Marines, but they need 20 for a perfect rating.
    • A flexed-arm hang. The minimum is for 15 seconds; women get a perfect score if they last for 70 seconds. Men don't do the hang in their test.
