Benchmark Assessment!!! What is it? and how it is done?

Yes.. By now you would have completed your benchmark assessment. The benchmark assessment is held at the start of every intake each month with an objective to first gauge the recruits physical ability in strength, muscular endurance, stamina, agility and speed. With the Benchmark Assessment too, instructors will have a better insight in the recruits ability to go beyond their physical fatigue. This is important for instructors to get the best out of the recruit during training.

Once the assessment is concluded, recruits will be placed unto their respective rank, eg, Delta, Seals and Rangers according to their benchmark timing and workout form as well as the technique observed and performed during the assessment. However, please note that the benchmark timing is not the only factor used in categorizing recruits but there are other characteristics and factors.

BENCHMARK ASSESSMENT is important and should not be missed. Previous month's recruits whom are not continuing their session in the following months should also perform the Benchmark Assessment upon completing their 12 sessions to see their level of fitness improvement.

There are 2 parts of the Benchmark assessment.

1) Benchmark Assessment 1 (BM1),  there are Four (4) Exercises involved in the Benchmark Assessment.

i) Running 2 laps of 200 meter track.
ii) Pushups (10 repetition on toes & 15 on knees)
iii) Grunts (10 repetitions)
iv) Situps (15 repetition without assistance, 20 rep with feet assisted)

There will be no resting between workout and once the 3 sets of the circuit above is completed, the timing will recorded.


Benchmark assessment!!! Yes.. We would always usually began on the first and the thirteenth session of every month with a Chief's Original Bootcamp (COBC) Benchmark assessment. However, this month we scheduled it on other unknown days for various reason but it will be done. Without the Benchmark assessment of the first session, new recruits were placed into Ranger, Seal or Delta according to how they perform while working out at every session!! Yes.. The Reds are watching us!! Rumor has it, they all got eye behind their back... So much so that when we thought we are on a comfortable safe zone taking a breather, Wham!!! 10 Grunts for stalling... Gulp.. *swallow saliva.. spotted!

Whether you are at COBC in Malaysia or Australia or any other part of the world, you will be doing the same benchmark assessment!! The same form, the same circuit and the same distance. Why? because of various reason but primarily because wherever you are, when you have reach a certain fitness level, you would want to pace yourself against other better recruits within the COBC network worldwide. That is one of the primary characteristics of a Delta. Twice a year, this elite Delta will be given a special invitation to participate in the network's toughest challenge codename: Hell Week!! or Longest day etc. Some Deltas were even invited to try out for the Red Tee... Yes, we encourage and recommend potential Deltas to be in red tee for one main reason.. Instructors that was born from a recruit knew best the needs and wants of a recruit and is able to fulfill that better than someone from outside whom would have to first understand COBC military-inspired's firm, assertive and yet friendly nature as well as COBC recruit's culture and camaraderie.
