What is the recovery time for a profile?

I am on a profile. How long do I have to recover before I have to take the APFT?

Recovery time for all profiles is twice the length of the profile, not to exceed ninety days. For example, if you are on profile for fifteen days, you will get thirty days to recover. If you have a thirty-day profile, you will have sixty days for recovery. The only exception is that postpartum profiles are given one hundred and eighty days to recover.

 TC 3-22.20 states:

6-6. Soldiers recovering from injury, illness, or other medical conditions must train within the limits of their medical profiles (DA Form 3349 [Physical Profile]) and be afforded a minimum train-up period of twice the length of the profile. Prescribed train-up periods must not exceed 90 days before APFT administration or other unit physical readiness goal requirements IAW AR 350-1.
