PVT Vanminsel discusses how to prepare for PT.

Read Transcript

I'm Private Vanminsel, I'm from Rochester, Minnesota and I'm here at Fort Benning for basic training. The question is from Leonard from Upper Marlboro, Maryland; "I was just wondering if there are any tips you could give me at becoming better with PT?"

The thing with PT is, when I got here I could barely run a mile without wheezing and coughing, I could barely do 30 pushups. I'm a week away from graduation I can run 2 miles in under 13 minutes and I can do like 60 pushups. Don't stress about PT, they will build you up to it. As far as preparing for it, start with running now, run a little bit every day and do as many push-ups, sit-up as you can. Hope that answers your question.
