Chinese Military is agonised over the dropping numbers of potential recruits failing the rigorous fitness test. Army has rejected 20 percent of the applications due to the applicants being overweight whereas eight percent of them were rejected due to candidates' enlarged testicular vein.

In order to ensure the top-notch condition of the would-be recruits, many candidates were rejected by People's Liberation Army. An official from PLA took it to Social Media addressing the reasons as to why the potential candidates are failing the test.

The total number of candidates rejected so far due to the issue was not mentioned, although it was mentioned that more than half of the applications were rejected. Apparently, PLA has high standards for recruitment. 

The root of the problems is said to be excessive masturbation and playing way too much video games without resorting to physical exercises. Oversized tattoos and alcohol problems were also acknowledged as a big reason for test failure.

Defence ministry supporting the decision said, "China's recruitment process has strict rules and procedures." The ministry further added, "The quality of our recruits is guaranteed and the headwaters of our military will flow long and strong."

Chinese citizens supported PLA's regulations. One of Weibo (China's version of Twitter) users wrote, "Going online every day on the computer or phone, late-night gaming and masturbating, it would be weird if they were actually healthy and fit!" 

Chinese Military officials have always been against modern lifestyle ways and earlier mentioned their worry regarding soldiers getting addicted to the online battle game "King of Glory" which might lead to them having difficulty in focusing on actual war. 

President Xi Jinping ever since coming into power in 2012 has procliamed the need to build a stronger combat-ready military. Chinese military has been seeing double-digit increase in the budget for past few years until last year, when it was raised by only 7.6 percent.
