        If any of you are into Goruck, they updated their fitness test for Heavy Challenges. The previous 2 min max pushups, situps, and timed run will be replaced by:

        3 Mile Ruck
        12 Rounds For Time
        6 x Ring Pull-Ups
        6 x Burpee Squats (Full Burpee with Jump followed by Squat)
        6 x 4 Ct Mountain Climbers (Man-Makers)
        6 x Rucksack Getups
        3 Mile Ruck

        Cadre decide on-site rucks on or off for the PFT.

        You will also do a “12” mile timed ruck somewhere in the event.

          Just from a work perspective, that’s a lot more to do!

            No kidding.

            Even more info from the Cadre in charge of creating the vision and standard: https://open.spotify.com/episode/6CCc2njPDqRRyeFN4kDMX9

            In that Podcast he explains they want the first 12 hours to be an individual suck fest and if you make it through that then they will break in to team building and leadership via team tasks and exercises.

            From a business and marketing perspective – that PT test will likely need to be conducted at local crossfit gyms due to equipment requirements. That makes it easier for them to attract people from that sphere and market to them. It’s as much of a business move as anything else.

              Yeah, I was trying to figure out why they would do it, the recruiting-from-crossfit thing I hadn’t thought of.

                It’s probably also a way to deal with increasing enrollment in heavy events, or increased dropout rates. Either way, they are trying to narrow the number of people showing up.
