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:
|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|
|Suprapsinal||26mm||Big drop from 41mm. So, I’m losing fat from somewhere. Maybe it’s getting converted|
|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|
|Thomas test||Left quad a little tighter than the right, hip flexors good|
|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.
