That's the thing, start from where you're at and get better. It's probably not the best barometer, but it's another thing to track. I like tracking. Numbers motivate me.

Cool. I did the US Army Physical Fitness Test a while back and had a lot of fun working to improve my scores. The Marine Corps test is a bit harder so that could be a good challenge for me.

My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since.

Hmm, well I know it's only a hang, but I'm not sure I could do that at all. Those are old-school (banned in every modern gym) "situps" not "crunches". Assuming I could do all 100pts of crunches, my run would pull me to exactly zero, or possibly a little negative, so I guess I'm not joining the Corps any time soon...

A friend of mine who does the fitness thing (we do our own thing, we're not fitness buddies or anything) mentioned that he was doing this test. He wants to do it every 6 weeks as a barometer for his overall fitness. It's not necessarily my barometer of choice, but he asked me if I'd like to join him and I did.

I scored a 175. If anyone else does it, post your numbers. It could be a fun little competition thing perhaps.
