IPPT

IPPT CHEAT MANAGED TO SNEAK INTO ARMY CAMPS USING OTHERS ID FOR THREE YEARS!

The worst was that he actually managed to go from 2011 to 2014 to take the IPPT on behalf of all these people, and almost got away with it. The fact that he was eventually caught because a trainer recognised him, is more down to him being too overconfident. Maybe if the guy had refrained from doing IPPT so soon for someone else in the same camp, he would have gotten away scott free even longer!

NSF POPS VIAGRA HOPING TO BOOST & PASS HIS IPPT, END UP STILL FAIL

Why? Because I was failing NAPFA's running portion, and desperately didn't want to join NS three months earlier. I read a news article that claimed that Viagra improved athletic performance by enlarging your blood vessels, allowing your heart to pump more oxygen and increasing stamina. At the time, it sounded like what I needed. Turns out... it didn't really work. Well, my running time improved by 10-20 seconds, but it wasn't enough to pass. With such a small improvement, I couldn't really chalk it up to the Viagra.

IPPT TO REINSTATE PULL-UPS AFTER SINKIE MALES FAIL TO CLIMB HDB & RESCUE TODDLER

This incident shows clearly that Singaporean males have very poor upper body and upper arm strength. They were unable to pull themselves up like those two foreign workers. Did you see Mr. Shanmuganathan's spider-like reflexes when he swung his way to the toddler's rescue? That is the kind of standard we need for the SAF. We don't want guniang soldiers who cannot carry themselves, what more their buddies. This is why with immediate effect, we will re-implement the Pull-up station into the IPPT.

MINDEF: WE ARE MAKING IT TOUGHER FOR YOU TO ACHIEVE SILVER AND GOLD IPPT STANDARD!

MINDEF will make it more difficult for national servicemen to achieve silver and gold awards for the new 3-station IPPT test when it is fully implemented from April. The ministry said that more than 70 per cent and almost 90 per cent of servicemen maintained or improved their results for 2.4KM run and sit-ups respectively, compared to their results under the old 5-stations format. For the push-up station, 3 out of 4 servicemen achieved "average and above average" results when compared against international standards.

[YOUR LETTERS] NSMEN WASTED ONE HOUR WAITING FOR IPPT RESULTS BECAUSE SYSTEM WAS DOWN

I am very disappointed with SAF. If the IPPT system is not broken, why fix it? What are the civil service scholars thinking? Why did they spend money to "upgrade" a system that hag lag issues and unreliable backend servers? We have already taken time and effort to train for our IPPT and yet we have to spend unnecessary time to wait for them to resolve computer problems?

NSMAN WHO SKIP IPPT TO BE CONFINED IN CAMP & FORCED TO EXERCISE

Confinement, the bane of conscripted soldiers here, will continue to haunt reservists who skip the mandatory military fitness test three times in a row. Instead of a $100 fine - the usual penalty currently - citizen soldiers will soon be locked up in camp, "forced" to exercise and still pay a monetary penalty. The new regime starts in January, with a five-day boot camp aimed at getting operationally ready national servicemen (NSmen) fit, said the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF).

NEW IPPT IS A HALF-BAKED SYSTEM FOR WUSSIES

My initial impression of the NEW IPPT is that the changes are introduced in a rather haphazard manner. It worries me because I would not want our men to be guinea pigs to test out a half-baked system ill-thought through by Mindef. Over the years, it is not known how many casualties have been claimed by the IPPT. Recapping what is taught at the OCS – leadership by example, perhaps our male MPs could try the new IPPT system so as to motivate us with their stellar results?

FITNESS EXPERTS CONCERNED OVER NEW IPPT

Netizens on his Facebook page had mixed reactions to the changes, with some questioning if the new test would be too easy.The removal of three other stations also raised concerns among some fitness experts. Director of Genesis gym Jonathan Wong, who conducts IPPT training, told The Straits Times that while the new test was "significantly easier", it might undermine combat fitness standards.
