Soldiers are weighed at least twice per year (usually in conjunction with the Army Physical Fitness Test, to ensure they meet Army standards for weight and fitness.

Individuals who exceed the maximum weight shown on the charts below are measured for body-fat content. Those who exceed the Army's Body-Fat Standards are entered into a Weight Management Program (WMP), whereby they are required to lose a designated amount of weight each month until they meet the Body-Fat Standards. Individuals who fail to make satisfactory progress while in the WMP are subject to involuntary discharge.
