  1. hi all, need advice from those who attended the RT sessions under the new IPPT scheme (9 months window for IPPT, then 3 months for RT). first time kena RT.. need to know if we have to go for all 20 compulsory sessions or not? Or is there an IPPT session conducted on the 1st or 4th or whichever session, after which if i pass i need not go for RT anymore? tried searching ns.sg and mindef website, they did not mention anything about this. damn sian to go RT.. sibeh waste time sia.
  2. Which station or stations should be removed? http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/ippt-may-be-made-simpler/1221962.html Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen said the yearly fitness test may include fewer test stations, and more details will be announced in the next few months. SINGAPORE: The yearly Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT) may be made simpler, with having fewer stations, as the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) moves towards being more flexible and listening to feedback from National Servicemen, according to Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen. Dr Ng, speaking to the media ahead of SAF Day on July 1, said Singapore is moving away from taking a strictly dogmatic approach by listening and responding to feedback by NSmen, such as on issues concerning IPPT. While the gold standards for IPPT will not change, the overall fitness test may be made simpler, he said. "IPPT is not a be-all and end-all of fitness. It is a measure of fitness. So if we treat it that way, can there be simpler tests? Do other militaries use less stations? And as we look deeper into it, other militaries do use less. We are among the few militaries that use five (stations). Others use three, some more. But a majority of militaries actually use simpler tests," Dr Ng said. More details will be announced in the next few months, he added. The IPPT was launched in 1979 and taken by about 116,000 SAF personnel annually. The test format, unchanged since 1982, requires servicemen to go through the five stations of sit-ups, standing broad jumps, pull ups, a 4x10 metre shuttle run and 2.4-kilometre run.
  3. Wah. If I pass means I'm outstanding sibo? http://www.todayonline.com/singapore/7-10-nsmen-their-30s-fail-annual-ippt-training-expert 7 in 10 NSmen in their 30s fail annual IPPT: Training expert Operationally Ready National Servicemen taking the Individual Physical Proficiency Test. Photo: MINDEF By Leong Wai Kit Published: 8:50 PM, July 21, 2014 SINGAPORE — Seven in 10 National Servicemen in their 30s fail their annual Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT), and this failure rate rises as the NSmen age. This is based on the experience of a former head of physical training in the army, Mr Edwin Ong, who spoke to Channel NewsAsia following the news that the IPPT will be made simpler. It is unclear what changes will be announced, and when they will be announced. Currently, said Mr Ong, IPPT problem areas for NSmen are chin-ups, the standing broad jump, and the 2.4km stations. There are specific reasons the current IPPT stations are part of a serviceman’s training regime. The 2.4km run, for example, tests one’s cardiovascular fitness, said Mr Ong. “It tests how fit you are in terms of stamina, because your heart really needs to cope with the stress — and so it is a very good gauge of your overall fitness level.” This station is reportedly a problem for around seven in 10 servicemen. The shuttle run is a station where the aim is to sprint a total of 40m in two loops, bending and touching the ground (or picking up a block) at each turning point. “The reason is we’re simulating a fire movement,” said Mr Ong, ex-Head of Physical Training, School of Physical Training. “So when you get into a position of cover, you need to really place one hand in front and get yourself down, and prone yourself down to get yourself in a firing position.” Sit-ups, meanwhile, focus on another aspect. “It is important for NSmen because when we put on our uniform and our SBO (Skeletal Battle Order) or now the load-bearing vest, this will help us keep everything in hold,” said Mr Ong. As for chin-ups, National Serviceman Mohd Azfar feels they are still relevant because “when you have to do FIBUA (fighting in built-up areas) exercises, you will have to scale walls, which requires upper body strength. So I feel there’s no need to tweak this station, as it is very relevant”. One of the toughest stations is the standing broad jump station — fitness experts say about six in 10 NSmen have problems passing this station. “There are a lot of people who can’t really jump,” said Mr Ong. “One is that they do not have the strength and the power, and the second issue is their jumping technique.” Indeed, while it takes only about an hour to go through all the current stations, it takes about six weeks to get ready for the IPPT as it stands now.

"Key changes are expected to include the scrapping of the standing broad jump station and adding push-ups as a testing criterion." Heng ah. Lim peh MR liao. Those still RT regulars good luck.
  7. For bros who still have NS liabilities please take care. Go have yourself checked for medical conditions for if you feel out of breath or uncomfirtable during trainings. Having heart attack at 32 is rather unusual and hope LCP (NS) Chew recovers soon. From AsiaOne: http://www.asiaone.com/News/Latest%2BNews/...222-403997.html NSman suffers cardiac arrest during IPPT training AsiaOne Friday, Feb 22, 2013 A Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Operationally-Ready National Serviceman, Lance Corporal (LCP) (NS) Chew Koh Leong, 32, suffered a cardiac arrest on Thursday, Feb 21, at 7.25pm while performing his IPPT Preparatory Training in Maju Camp. LCP(NS) Chew had no known prior history of heart disease. He was successfully resuscitated by an SAF medical doctor and medic, and was sent to the National University Hospital at 7.55pm. He is being treated in the intensive care unit and the cause of his cardiac arrest investigated by NUH specialists. The SAF is providing assistance to LCP(NS) Chew's family.
  8. Just when back to RT and I've surprise now even SAF outsource the conducting of the RT/IPT/IPPT to FTs. Mainly the one I go are from Certis. Many of these FTs are fit looking and look professional, but the conducting of the RT/IPT remains to be desired. Some FTs are good, some FTs cannot make it. There's even 1 Female FTs which is either morale boosting (looks quite nice and sporty...) or demoralizing (probably fitter than you). Anyone had experience with these FTs? I seen them in Khaitb FCC. Other camps have? Do you think the RT/IPT is better conducted? Are FTs NSF or paid trainers? Note: The above picture is not a real representing of how RT is conducted. Usually, the number of Trainees in the session is 10x more than those in the picture and more chaotic. Many trainees look tired and many super overweight.... BTW FT = Fitness Trainer.

    IPPT FFI

    Hey guys, Need your advice or input on my recent IPPT FFI. Just went through my 1st phase medical review for past 35yo IPPT FFI. Been taking IPPT for the past 5 yrs, always pass but the results getting from bad to worse as I m not getting any younger. I have pretty high chlolestrol for the past 5 yrs. During the FFI, my BP was taken to be about 150/80, ECG was OK. So the MO say that if need be, I will need to go for stress ECG to ensure everything is good. Then yesterday, I receive letter from MO that I am cardiovascularly fit; as good as pass FFI. So now, do I rely on MO verdict and risk my life on that IPPT ( even 25yo very fit officer also can die after marathon ) or any other means to review the case?
