    Hey everyone,

    My name is Andrew and ill be heading to Cape May in 14 days. I have been working to exceed the physical requirements described in the Helmsman, but wanted to know how the test is actually set up. Are the requirements tested back to back or is there time in between each qualification? Any other helpful info on how the test is setup would be greatly appreciated, thanks all!

    I went through about a year ago, but the way we did it was we did the run first. After the run, we walked over to the gym and there was 3 or 4 observers there waiting for us to do push-ups and sit-ups. We got into a big line and did one first then we got back in line again to do the next. It was maybe 5-10 minute break in between the two.

    We did it the exact opposite. Push-ups and sit-ups first, then run. But format was the same as JDMD described.
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    We did a bunch of "authorized" Coast Guard warm-up and stretching exercises first then lined up to do push-ups first. After that, we went back in line and were called in pairs to perform sit-ups. We had about 4-5 minutes between the push-ups and sit-ups.

    After sit-ups we were briefed on the run and went outside to run.

    The next day we did the swim assessment after morning chow.
