These Two Bodybuilders Attempted The FBI Fitness Test

YouTube fitness duo the Buff Dudes, aka brothers Brandon and Hudson White, have tried all kinds of workouts and nutritional challenges, from going keto and vegan to working out while sleep-deprived. Most recently, they challenged themselves to find out if they have what it takes to join the FBI. Turns out, it takes more than just fidelity, bravery and integrity; it also takes strength and endurance.

Led by FBI agent Duke, the first test is pullups. The goal is to manage 20, with no time limit, which they both manage, but Brandon wins by completing his set slightly quicker.

Next up is the pushup round, which requires a minimum of 30 reps. Duke adds that the perfect score is 70. Hudson completes 50 pushups, a passing score, although it should be noted that he doesn’t fully extend or lock his arms. But who are we to criticise the FBI’s guidelines on pushup technique? Brandon wins this round too, with 55 pushups. Hs form is better, although as he begins to tire his arm extension also suffers a little.

There’s a one minute window on the next challenge; the aim is to complete 38 situps or more in the allotted time. “That was hard,” says Hudson, who fails the challenge just shy of the goal at 35 situps. “That was the hardest one so far, by far.” Duke corrects his form on this round as well; he had his hands behind his head, when they need to be crossed over your shoulders.

Brandon, meanwhile, sails past the target and completes 46 reps in the one minute time limit. “You’re going like ‘I can definitely do this,’ but then you hit that wall where you just seize up,” he says.

Fourth is the 300 meter sprint. A perfect score here is 41 seconds. By 30 seconds, everybody else has fallen behind and only Brandon is still running, reaching the 300 meter mark in 49 seconds.

The fifth and final test is a 2.4km. A perfect score here would be to complete it in 9 minutes… the brothers manage somewhere around the 15 minute mark, proving they both need to work on their stamina before they’ll be welcomed into the ranks of the FBI.
