How Fit are YOU really?
What is a “Fit Test”?
The “Official” Definition: A Fit Test is a measure of fitness, so you have a reference point from which you can look back to see how YOU have progressed over time. We will be coming back to this test each month to see how you are doing! YAY aren’t you excited?!
Be prepared for a tough workout!
If you are a Beginner go at your own pace. This is not a competition…. it’s just to see how you are progressing over time, from this point forward.
I would recommend doing the Fit Test 1x per month at the beginning of the month to see if you are in fact getting STRONGER, FASTER and essentially FITTER. This workout hits all body parts. Its best to take a rest day (from weights) before attempting the Fit Test!
Instructions: You are going to do each exercise one after the other as quickly as you can. Go at your own pace. You are in competition with ONLY yourself. (WORKOUT BELOW)
If you are at home you can use 2 dumbbells for weight. Choose your weight and record it. If this is too light or heavy the goal is to track what you CAN do. The ultimate goal is to get Stronger, Faster, Meaner… and track your progress over time.
Do a light warm up on the heavier lifts do 10 reps with light weight to get the body warmed up. If you do more than 20 reps for an exercise it is time to up the weight for next months “Fit Test”. Stop at 20 reps thats enough. Up the weight!
Make sure to record the weight used_____and reps completed____
