First Fitness Test Results for the BLC25

Monday, May 05, 2014

OK so my fitness is not great... I knew that...

My walk was good - 17.08 for a mile... not awesome but not too shabby for a mile walk.

My push ups were poor... I managed 12 pathetic attempts. If a personal trainer saw me do those he would not count any of them I'm sure.
My crunches were pretty bad too. I managed 21. I was sore afterwards and that was just one minute of crunching... My core is terribly weak... broken probably.

After 3 minutes of steps my heart rate was 88... I could feel it slow as I counted. I think that's OK... Not sure. My legs are good it's just my core is really weak.

I'm going to start going to Circuit training again with a friend. That's on Wednesday. Today I did lots of exercise... my 35 minutes in the pool plus one hour walking.

Today I've done 14,136 steps already! I am going to meet a friend at Starbucks for a chat soon... so I'll get a couple hundred more for sure. I might even make 15,000.

I wonder how my fitness will improve over the coming weeks. What a wonderful idea to do a fitness test! Well done BLC!

    emoticon 15,000 steps!!

    If you're serious about improving your pushups, check out the one hundred pushup challenge. It uses your baseline to slowly increase your reps. I've improved mine using this and also doing daily planks (modified ones on the forearms) Here's the link to the 100 push up challenge: http://hundredpushups.com/
