Navy creates separate PRT plank standards for men, women

Recommended Posts

The Navy has released new plank standards for the physical readiness test for men and women, and is also reducing the max out standards for both groups after evaluating records from last year’s assessment.

Whereas the plank standards the Navy originally released in 2020 were gender neutral for all age groups, the new standards are slightly different for men and women, according to the Navy. The shift stems from analysis done on 26,000 forearm plank records from the 2021 PRT, which found there was a “minor gender performance differential,” the Navy said in a new naval administrative message.
