Day 37: long overdue fitness test results

Good morning 

Sorry for the slightly late posting of yesterday’s activity, but I did my usual trick of falling asleep, never mind though it is here now 🙂

So yesterday morning, I decided that I would forgo the Pilates class in favour of being able to go out for the day without loosing most of the morning to a gym class. This is a shame, because I like Pilates, however it is not the end of the world and it allowed us to have a good day out…but i will come to that later.

In lieu of Pilates I decided that it was about time that I did mt fitness test, you know the one I promised to do regularly but haven’t done for 2 weeks…

So I carried out the fitness test, in accordance with the rules of scientific testing, I did my best to keep most of the parameters the same as the last times. I Carried out my 10 min warm up on the stepper then went through the exercises in the same order, Press-ups, sit-ups, squats, step test, sit and reach. With the following results:

Press ups – 30, Sit-ups (in a minute) – 49,  squats – 51, HR after 3 min stepping – 90, sit and reach – 16 cm.

As I have said previously, I am not actually sure how accurate a test of fitness this is, especially administered at home on my own, but by doing  the same thing once a week (ish) that is repeatable and measurable it at least gives a ball park indication 🙂

As i have 3 sets of results…I am starting to get graphs the look interesting now so here they are…
