Why does the new score sheet indicate that the male 27-31 age group has the highest number of push up reps to score 100 points? Why the spike at that age group when the past standards always had 17-21 with the highest?

It's been this way for a few years now. The Army decided that the recruits they were getting were out of shape, since kids just sit in front of the tv or computer all day. So they figured by the time they were 27 they'd be used to doing pt and therefore although the min is lower, the max is higher.

I think is has more to do with your muscles reach their peak strength during the age of 27-31. That decision didnt have anything to do with fat kids that just sit on the couch all day.
