The U.S. Marine corps has delayed its deadline for new physical requirements after less than half of female recruits could not do the required minimum of three pull-ups.
The new standard was meant to take effect on January 1st, but now the announcement is raising new questions about whether women should even be serving in combat.
CNN's Chris Lawrence has more.
Intro frame is person doing a chin-up not a pull-up. Back of hand should be seen to be a pull-up. Big difference.
if you can't do a basic exercise, how can you safely protect yourself and others if need? This isnt about pull up its about strength. If you can pull your fallen mate out of line of fire due to lack of strength..what good are you??? Go back to cheesburgers.
Wow no comments? Maybe because there is no one in the article to hate.
If women want equal rights in the military they should have equal pt requirements
