Because I am now a member of the Y, I am able to participate in some of their member perks – such as a fitness assessment for $15.
Tonight I had my first session of the assessment (session 2 will be in 3 months).
The assessment consisted of vitals, measurements, and a few fitness tests.
Body fat analysis:
Based on 5’7, 195lb – 36.1% body fat, 70.5lb fat mass, 124.5lb lean mass [This should, ideally, be in the 12-18% range, but definitely below 30%]
Resting heart rate – 85 bpm [This should be 72 bpm or lower]
Blood pressure – 126/60
Recovery heart rate after 1:45 of 12in stepping at a 96 bpm pace – 130 bpm
(My quad seized on my right knee, so I had to quit before 3 min. Boo)
Sit-ups in 1 min – 19, Fair rating for age/gender
Push ups – 7, Poor rating for age/gender
Sit-and-Reach flexibility test – 19 in, Average rating for age/gender
My goals for when I test again in 3 months:
1. Increase sit-ups to 24
2. Increase push ups to 10
3. Increase sit-and-reach to 20
4. Decrease recovery heart rate to 120-124 bpm
5. Lose approx. 12 lbs (1 lb / week)
