Female Marines May Be Required To Do Pull-Ups

From the Marine Corps Times:

The Marine Corps is considering an overhaul of the Physical Fitness Test for women that would incorporate a new upper-body strength test requiring pull-ups for a perfect score.

Details of the plan are outlined in a June 17 decision paper developed by Training and Education Command, out of Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va. Obtained by Marine Corps Times, it recommends that women be allowed to score up to 70 points for maintaining the existing flexed-arm hang up to 70 seconds. To score more on the 100-point upper-body strength scale, they’d need to do pull-ups.”
