It's a lot of tough work, but floating down to Earth under that parachute with the view is unbeatable!

Normal minimum army standard.
However we run everywhere and have 5 mile formation runs sounding off in cadence.

Work on chin-ups. Get ready to be hollered at, called dirty leg and other names. When you get to tower week, don't tighten your harnesss so tight you can't stand straight. You will jump out of the 34 foot tower until you are very sore. It took me a few days to figure that one. Don't close your eyes and do everything the way the Black Hats tell you. You will be jump qualified if you make it. You are not airborne until you make your cherry jump in a airborne unit. You will not regret making the leap!

I’ve been told that the chin up standard is just holding a single one for 20 seconds, is that true?

That is the additional part to the normal minimum standard PT test. The point is to be able to pull risers to slip for collision avoision and safe landing. Practice proper chinups is still just helpful!
