Slackers who want to join the military, Rejoice!!! Kinda.

In an attempt to make its training more practical, the Army may soon drop the sit-up from its fitness requirements.

The army is testing a new fitness regiment that includes running an obstacle course with 40 to 70 pounds of combat gear on and dragging a sled weighing 180 pounds, but none of the iconic stomach-strengthening exercise.

According to head of Army training, Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, "repetitive exercises like sit-ups don't translate into survival on the battlefield."

However, push-ups are still part of the new fitness guidelines, which could be adopted army-wide by the end of the year.
