*** THIS LINE ADDED*** Okay folks, I just want to say... before u read on, check the egos at the door for this, it's for everyone to have fun and live a healthier, happier lifestyle. I know that I am one of those who needs to do an ego check, and I will do my best, I just ask that everyone else do the same and have fun with this!***THIS LINE ADDED***
Okay guys... I know a lot of us are not real happy with our level of physical fitness, I've been toying with this idea for a while now and since I got P90X and another fitness test coming up... I figured this is the perfect time. SO... I'm challenging all of u vode to be the best mando u can be, to go above all, become one of the few and the prode vode an... live life like an adventure (ok I'm out of military recruiting slogans). I'm going to challenge all vode to meet the MINIMUM scores for the US Air Force's current (not the new one that will be in effect 1 Jan 10) fitness test. It is a three event test with the following requirements, to achieve a passing score of 75% one must:
1. 33 Push Ups in 1 minute
2. 40 Sit Ups in 1 minute
3. 1.5 mile run in 12 minutes 30 seconds.
4. Abdominal Circumfrence of < 45 inches
Points are on a graduated scale... meaning more pushups/situps equals longer run time to pass. I'll even go out on a limb and share my scores as of my last fitness test, almost a month ago.
1. 55 Pushups (7 from maximum points)
2. 55 Situps (maximum points)
3. 12:15 min/sec 1.5 mile run
4. 30.5 inch abdominal circumfrence
My goal for the next test is 65 Pushups, 60 Situps, 10:30 run and maintain my 30.5 abdominal. My challenge for you is to set a goal... and meet it! I'm going to be posting my progress on a sort of regular basis here... I'd like to see some other vode join in!
Ok here's the ROE:
1. Take the AF Fitness test... Perform standard pushups for 1 min and record your number; rest 5 min; perform standard situps (arms across your chest, not behind your head) for 1 min, record your number; rest 5 min; now run 1.5 miles and time your run, record your number; measure your waist 3 times to get abdominal circumfrence and record the average.
2. Report your numbers. Make a post here just like I did and report your scores.
3. Set a goal based on your score and work out to improve your score.
4. Start from Step 1 and work all the way back through. Test yourself approximately twice each month or every two weeks.
