BLC 22 - Week 12 Fit Test Results

Monday, August 26, 2013

Well, this is the last week of BLC 22. This week we will revisit the Fit Test that we did throughout the challenge. Here are the results of my comparison:

Fit test!
Do as many of each as you can without a break of more than a few seconds. Record it! If you cannot do something for whatever reason, skip it. If you need to modify it, do so. Just do it! We’ll come back here at the end of the round.

- Crunches
- Squats
- Push ups
- Plank (count in seconds)
- Wall Sit (count in seconds)
- Exercise of your choice - add any strength exercises that you want to track!

So I choose to do the first 5. I did make a modification to the TNT. I didn’t think that “do as many as you can” was specific enough. So I gave myself a time limit. I did as many as I could (crunches, squats, and push ups) in a 2 minute time period. That way I have a little better stats to compare against at the end. Here are my results:

June 6, 2013 Results:
- Crunches – 69 in 2 minutes
- Squats – 48 in 2 minutes
- Push ups – 36 in 2 minutes on my knees
- Plank – 45 seconds on my hands and toes
- Wall Sit – 2 minutes 1 sec

July 9, 2013 Results:
- Crunches - 87 in 2 minutes
- Squats - 60 in 2 minutes
- Push Ups - 60 in 2 minutes on my knees
- Plank - 60 seconds on my hands and toes
- Wall Sit - 2 minutes 45 sec

August 26, 2013 Results:
- Crunches - 105 in 2 minutes
- Squats - 75 in 2 minutes
- Push Ups - 72 in 2 minutes on my knees
- Plank - 78 seconds on my hands and toes
- Wall Sit - 3 min 31 sec

So I improved quite a bit in just 12 weeks! Woohoo!


Then our head captain threw out an additional challenge on top of this one.
ALSO complete the following:
- Walkers - complete and time a 1 mile walk at your fastest pace
- Runners - Complete and time a 1.5 mile run at your fastest pace
- Flexibility - sitting on the floor with legs straight out in front of you, reach for your toes and have someone take a picture of you showing your current flexibility
- Post ALL your results, including your flexibility picture in a SP Blog.

June 6, 2013 Results:
My results for the run was 22 minutes. I held consistent for a 15 minute run/walk. In my book, not a great time (I’ve done better) but not terrible considering I haven’t really run/walked much this spring.

July 9, 2013 Results:
My results for the run was 19min 30 sec. I held a fairly consistent pace for the entire 1.5 miles of 13 min per mile (run/walk). It was super hot and fairly humid.

August 24, 2013 Results:
My results for the run was the same as July 9. 19 min 30 sec for 1.5 miles. Since I am a pace leader, I have to hold fairly consistent. So no surprise here.

Here is the flexibility picture from June 6:

I honestly can't tell if there is improvement between July and August. The picture is at a funky angle so I can't tell. I felt like there was slight improvement. What do you think?
