Day 380: Fitness Test Results

Monday, June 09, 2014

Since it's week 6 of the BLC, we had to repeat the fitness test that we did in week 1. I'll be posting my results from both as comparison.

The link to the test is here:

Here are my results:

Week 1:
The Push-Up Test (Modified Push Ups): 19 in 1 minute
This ranks me as "average" since I'm in the 30-39 age range.

Week 6:
The Push-Up Test (Modified Push Ups): 21 in 1 minute
This ranks me as "average" again.

Week 1:
The Crunch Test: 20 in 1 minute
This ranks me between "marginal" and "needs work" for a woman under 35.

Week 6:
The Crunch Test: 25 in 1 minute
This ranks me as "marginal" - yay!

Week 1:
The 3-Minute Step Test: 112
This puts me between "average" and "below average" for a woman aged 26-35.

Week 6:
The 3-Minute Step Test: 110
This ranks me as "average" - yay!

Week 1:
The 1-Mile Walk Test: 19:15
This puts me as "poor" for being over 17:00 at ages 30-39.

Week 6:
The 1-Mile Walk Test: 18:59
This still ranks me as "poor".

I improved on all of my results! That makes me very happy! I still got cramps in my thighs (and arms) on the push-ups, but the stomach cramps during the crunches weren't as prevalent. I may be able to improve on my 1-mile time; I had some calf cramping when I started out today. I need to do more stretching!

Overall though, I'm happy with these results! emoticon
