Having already put himself through the physical fitness test used by the Russian armed forces to screen new recruits, YouTuber Brandon William sets his sights closer to home for his latest challenge. In a new video, he takes on the FBI fitness test without any prior training, and soon finds that, perhaps unsurprisingly, they’re called special agents for a reason.
The test consists of five events, with no more than 5 minutes of rest between each round:
- 1 minute of situps
- A timed 300-meter sprint
- Pushups to failure
- A timed 1.5-mile run
- Pullups to failure
William starts with the situps, churning out 50 reps in the allotted minute, earning him 6 points on the test. His performance on the sprint, however, looks like it could put him in trouble: he finishes the 400 meters in 1:03, which he puts down to doing laps back and forth instead of running on an open track.
“I think I could have been a little bit faster in that,” he says. “Every single time I have to stop and turn, it takes away all of the momentum.” This leads to 2 points being deducted from his cumulative score.
The third round is a test of an individual’s pushup max: William completes 55 reps, which adds 6 points to his score. “I wanted to pause and keep going, but you can’t pause,” he says.

Round 4 is the 1.5-mile run, where a minimum time of 13 minutes is required in order to pass. William finishes in 12:29, which while technically a pass, does not add any points to his final score.
The final test is pullups to failure. William maxes out at 20 reps, earning him the highest possible score of 10 points in this event, bringing his total score to 20 points: a pass. “Honestly, I’m pretty happy about that,” he says. “This test was not as hard as the Russian Army fitness one.”
