I had a fitness assessment at the university’s Recreation Centre today. Here are the results.
|Blood pressure||120⁄78||Healthy—the meds are working|
|Resting pulse rate||70 beats/minute|
|Sum of skin folds||132mm||No change|
|Astrand Submaximal Cycle Erometer test|
|Age corrected VO2 Max||1.738 litres/minute||This is low|
|Estimated VO2 Max||27.16 ml/kg/min||Delivery and utilisation of oxygen per kg of body weight—still low (< 30)|
|Sit & reach||Very good|
|Thomas test||Left quad a little tighter than the right, hip flexors good|
Overall, I’m losing weight. Now I just need to build up some strength. So, I feel on-track.
