Not sure on other services. AF did away with bf % and now just measures around the iliac process (top of hips). Unfair to someone like me who is 6'1" vs. someone who is 5'6". I am in pretty good shape with a 34" waist and 198 pounds, well below the max, but I lose points as 30" is the desired waist size, no matter what the height. I still passed my PT eval with 81 out of 100 points, but I lost the most points on the waist measurement. You can get a total of 50 points for the 1 1/2 mile run, 30 points for waist, 10 points for pushups and 10 points for situps. I maxed the situps and pushups and ran in 13 minutes, but I lost like 10 points on the waist. One of my goof friends is also a E-7 and barely passed. He maxed out the points for the pushups and situps, ran faster than me, but got no points for waist. He has 22 inch arms and a 41 inch waist (he is huge) and lifts weights that make ME puke. But none of that counts. Just gotta be fast and skinny. We don't want no strong boys in the AF.

Well, I usally just do up-right-rows, dead lifts for my neck. But when wanting to lose weight bud, drop the carbs. Go on a diet, and basicly run in the am, lift in the pm, this is what I do, since I came to this site, I lost nearly 20 pounds to 30 pounds, and gained some muscle.
Just work hard, make sure you have 20 carbs a day, 150 or so carbs a week, for the first two weeks, then up it by 10 carbs. Next, by the 5th week you can do up to 40-45ish amount of carbs. Just watch what you eat, drink alot of water, and get enough of sleep.
