The Test II

The Test II 


The lowdown:  It was time for the Lehigh Valley Pax to go back to school and take a another test this morning.  This test provided a baseline to measure progress again for the future for some and for others it was a way to see if they made any progress over the past two months.


The Thang:

Warmup- 150 side straddle hops was then followed up with arm circles, truck twists, hip rotations, side to sides, knee rolls, and ankle rolls to loosen all the joints up.

Then the pax partnered up.  One person counted while his partner did as many reps of the exercise for that round.  Then they would switch.  Each partner was to check for good form and was motivating each person to do his best. This went back and forth for all five exercises.  The exercise were as follows:

  1. push-ups
  2. squats
  3. burpees
  4. situps (bent knee and unassisted)
  5. pull-ups
  6. 15 min run  (The goal here is to run as fast as you can for 15 min. to do as many laps of the predesignated area as possible until time runs out.  The pax can then determine min. per mile pace.)  The results are below.  Also, if a Pax member participated in the last benchmark their last score is at the bottom in parenthesis.
