How I cleared the Army GD Physical Test in 1st Attempt

The easier it seems to be to join the Indian Army, the more difficult it becomes for those people who see the advantage of going to the canteen and hospital facilities only in the army. The Indian Army is at the top of all this. If you want to join the army only for these facilities, then I will not be able to help you.

If you have the enthusiasm that a JAWAN standing on the border needs and you have the passion which is ready to save the country from enemies even in 50 degrees, then you are made for the Indian Army. By keeping so much passion in your heart, you will cross half the recruitment like this. For the remaining half, I will tell you some important things in this article.

The first thing that you will have to keep in mind is that you will not be alone in the army recruitment rally, so whatever preparation you do, you will be able to do half of that preparation on the rally day. So if you have prepared only for 1600 m race, then understand that you will be able to participate in the recruitment rally only 800 m. I am saying this because there is a lot of difference between running with 100 people and running alone. On the day of the rally, the speed ahead of you determines your escape.

If you want to come in group 1 in 1600 m race, then you should have practice of running atleast 4000m. Now even if you ran 4000 m, then you also have to take care of time limit. In the rally you only get 5 min 20 sec to run 1600 m. So if you have to beat the time too, then everyday practice is important and this is the Gurumantra that can get you get selected in Indian Army in the first time.

Remember that Endurance is not a kind of thing that can be exceled in a day or two. It requires regularity and devotion to build that kind of stamina as a soldier. Apart from this, you have to take special care of some things. Discipline is most important for a military. Whether you are military or preparing to enter the army, discipline should be the highest for you.

If you have to get up at 4 am to go for a run, then no Sunday or cold or heat can break this discipline. If you succeed in doing this then nothing can stop you from becoming a military.

In order to be successful in army recruitment in 1st time, the following things are very important, read carefully.

Tips to clear Army Bharti Rally Physical Test

Regularity is the main ingredient of success in anything in the world.

  • 1 Mile doesn’t sound so much but doing so in your best time and with immense competition is the totally different thing.
  • Maintain regularity from at least 3 months before the rally.
  • Try to run 2 miles in the morning and evening every day without an excuse.

Tip 1: While running, try to breathe through your nose instead of your mouth even if you eventually get tired at some point, keep breathing from your nose, it will definitely increase your stamina.

2. Drink Water Carefully

Our body is made up of more than 70% of water. What does that teach us? Water is great for us. Drink as much water as you can throughout the day.

  • Avoid drinking too much at a single time.
  • Drink plenty of water 15-20 minutes before you run.
  • Avoid drinking or drink a very short amount of water while you are running.
  • Drink Water after some time of running.

3. Eat Healthy

  • You should always eat healthy even if you are not trying out for the army.
  • But if you are preparing for the army, then it’s a must

4. Try Running on Smooth Surface

  • Running on roads may lead to suffocating
  • It can also lead to unwanted pain in your ankles
  • And subsequently, decrease in your stamina rather than increasing it.
  • That is why try running on smooth surfaces like a ground or a field.

5. Stretching and Strength Exercises

Running is not the only exercise in the Indian Army GD tryouts, you will have to nail the other 3 test as well. So, after you are done running,

  • For e.g. like pull-ups, chin-ups, dibs, push-ups and others.
  • It will open up your muscles and make you more flexible and less prone to fatigue
  • Also, try long jumping, at least try to jump as long as 9 to 10 meters.

  • Be precise about everything, from your sleep to your food habits.
  • Don’t eat oily and junk food, it will only make things worse for you

    1. Dear Kavya,
      In that case you can practice on road but use good quality running shoes. Or practice on treadmill. Do practice other endurance exercises with running that will help you build a good stamina.

      Read Newspapers and note down daily current affairs to cover the GK section. Go through NCERT Books for General Science. Practice Maths and Reasoning Sample Papers as much as you can.

      1. Kavya. Kommoji

        Sir.. I’m from bobbili.. The venue for rally is so far to me sir.. What i have to do sir? How can i go?

        1. There are no arrangements to shift or change the venue. You yourself have to manage to reach the venue anyhow.
