Since the CFT is meant to ensure Marines are ready for combat, a shorter recovery time is something they could experience downrange too.

“In combat, things happen rapidly,” Armes said. “You don’t get a set time to recover. You might get a Marine across the danger zone and then they might have to do something like lift ammo cans. They’re going to be doing one thing after another in combat.”
By Jeff Schogol: Mattis Can’t Say If Having Women In The Infantry Will Work Or Not
Mattis also stressed that infantry units are “the most primitive, I would say evil environment” in the military because they consist of young Marines and soldiers who are cocky, rambunctious, and “necessarily macho.”
“I was never under any illusions about what level of respect my Marines would have for me if I couldn’t run with the fastest of them and look like it didn’t bother me; if I couldn’t do as many pull-ups as the strongest of them,” Mattis said. “It was the unfairness of the infantry.”

A good Navy is not a provocation to war. It is the surest guaranty of peace.
A powerful Navy we have always regarded as our proper and natural means of defense; and it has always been of defense that we have thought, never of aggression or of conquest. But who shall tell us now what sort of Navy to build? We shall take leave to be strong upon the seas, in the future as in the past; and there will be no thought of offense or provocation in that. Our ships are our natural bulwarks.
Theodore Roosevelt
