Another fitness assessment


I had another fitness assessment at the university's Recreation- Centre today. Here are the results.

Overall, my weight loss has plateaued but I'm definitely fitter. I think I need to adjust my diet somewhat. It'll be interesting to see what the doctor says next. Most-interestingly-was how poorly I did on the sit ups—my boxing training has done a lot to improve on my "abs' but it didn't show on today's test. I'll have to think about that (is it the test itself?).

Anyway, the results were:

Comments
Weight 99.08 No change
Height 176 I've grown … nearly 3 cm
Blood pressure Not done
Resting-pulse rate 60 beats/minute That's an-improvement …
it's down from 70 bpm
Body composition
Triceps 24mm Same
Subscapular 37mm Same
Suprapsinal 26mm Big drop from 41mm. So, I'm losing fat
from somewhere. Maybe it's getting converted
Medial calf 27mm Same
Sum of skin folds 114mm Down
Hip to waist 0.92 Was 1.02—I'm now in the moderate group.
That makes my body-fat content 25%, down
from over 30%
Astrand Submaximal Cycle Erometer test
Estimated-VO2-Max 33 Better. The fair range is 31—39
Flexibility
Sit-&-reach Very good
Thomas test Left quad a little tighter
than the right, hip flexors good
Shoulder-assessment Okay
Strength
Push ups 19 Well that is over double, but not quite
in the "good' range (21—30)
Sit ups 9 Fair … argh! I've been working hard
and I expected more

Of course, this is all age dependent.
