Changes Are Coming For the Pentagon's 'Tape Test' And Body Composition Policies
from Military Times
The Pentagon expects to have a decision on changes to the dreaded "tape test" by next summer, potentially overhauling one of the main ways it evaluates service members' fitness and body composition. For more than a year the Defense Department has been working with the services on potential changes that could be made to the forcewide policy that dictates how military calculates service members' body fat composition, which for a generation has mainly involved a tape test that relies on several key measurements of body size and height-weight proportions.
