>80% of NSmen are actually physically UNFIT for reservist military training/war...
(<20% NSmen actually manage to pass physical fitness test; >50% NSmen so terribly disabled/ infirm, they are excused from taking physical fitness test in SAF of any kind (no modified fitness options available (swimming, cycling etc) either)).

Operationally-ready national servicemen (NSmen) running as part of IPPT Preparatory Training (IPT) programme in Maju Camp on Sept 8, 2014. -- ST PHOTO: ONG WEE JIN -

Calculation:
'300,000-plus operationally ready national servicemen (NSmen) who form the backbone of the SAF': [SAF bends and stretches over IPPT: My Paper; 01Jul2014]

'...Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT)... ...The 2010 figures from the Ministry of Defence - the most recent available - showed that half of the 116,000 NSmen who take the test annually fail it.' [Tougher penalties for NSmen who skip IPPT; ST 31Oct2014]

% of all NSmen who are able to achieve minimum pass @ IPPT =
[(116,000/2) / 300,000+] = <<19.33333%
Or much less than 20% considering that denominator is in excess of 300,000 personnel.

% of all 'operationally ready' NSmen who are actually medically fit to take IPPT=
116,000 / 300,000 = <38.666%
Less than 40% NSmen are physically (medically) fit enough to qualify for IPPT testing to have their fitness recorded and computed annually.

Fit for infantry I am since last century, still certified FFI as of last IRB in the 2010s. 15 years never put on more than 10kg, no alcohol, no drugs, no cigarettes, as Minister Chan Chun Sing says, "Water is existential in Singapore“. I water parade whenever I can and I urinate several times daily.
