Default IDF physical requirements for entry

Hi

Does anyone know what kind of shape you have to be in when you first sign up?

Square is good, but rectangle can help too....

The army is concerned that you be physically able to hold a pen. Anything else, coupled witha strong enough desire to serve in the IDF will gain you entry.


I am including in this category soldiers in wheelchairs, soldiers without limbs, at least one dwarf that I know of, and a group of autistic
"soldiers" working in uniform on various bases in the country.

Each and every one wears the uniform with incredible pride.

Thanks everyone, I know the Americans have a physical requirement like so many of this and that in a set time, didn't know if the IDF had one too.

Looking forward to it

Thanks

Again, I am speaking about "price of admission".

Obviously there are very few Paratroopers in walkers. Pending on your aspirations, there are increasiong levels of fitness. The biggest misconception though is that people think the physical ability is the most important criterea. It isn't.
