Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the Initial Strength Test, the Physical Readiness Test, and selected Fleishman tests as measures of the type of physical fitness required by Marine Corps combat troops. It was concluded that none of them were satisfactory for this purpose. There are at present no criteria establishing the type and level of fitness required by such troops. Satisfactory tests cannot be developed until such criteria have been established.
