West Point's Indoor Obstacle Course Test

Ah, yes, the IOCT. I have vivid, vicious memories of that test!

The Cadet Gym was recently renovated. One part that wasn't touched was the part containing the equipment for the indoor obstacle course test, an entertaining video of which is posted on YouTube. Go take a look.

Low crawl, tire dance, pommel horse, climb up to the shelf, across the bars, through the tire, across the balance beams (ending in a roll), over the wall, hanging ladder, up the rope, and a few laps around the track (once with a baton, once with a medicine ball, once carrying nothing). I don't see the medicine ball in the video, but whatever.

While I hated it, I recognized then and now that it's a good test for overall fitness.
