Overall Fitness In 8 Tests
A friend forwarded me an article from Runner's World (written by editors at Men's Health) titled "8 True Tests of Your Overall Fitness". The article describes the test, drones on about the author's experiences, and then gives some helpful tips on how to meet the test objectives. I wanted a quick chart that I could easily reference, so I'll just post it here. The 30 pound dumbbells and 315 pound deadlift assumes 200 pound body weight.
| | STANDARD | | STIFF ARMS PLANK | 10 seconds | | BROAD JUMP | 7 feet | | SQUAT, HAMMER CURL, OVERHEAD PRESS | 20 reps in 60s, 27 lb | | FACING WALL SQUAT (2 IN) | 1 squat | | BEEP TEST | Level 12 | | CLAPPING PUSHUP | 10 | | DEADLIFT | 315 lbs | | SIT AND REACH | 17 inches |
My goal is to update these with my actual figures over the rest of the summer training season. most of the day fixing all of the question marks.
