It's been awhile since I've had a fitness assessment. The last times were in 2002 and 2004. So, here we are, about 10 years on from the first one. Let's compare today's results with history.
|Resting-pulse rate (bpm)||52||60||102|
|Sum of skin folds||114mm||132mm|
|Hip to waist||0.97||0.92||1.02|
|Cycle Erometer test|
|Estimated VO2 Max||49.18||33.0||15.6|
|Sit & reach||Excellent||Very good||Good|
|Thomas test||Left normal, right good.||Left quad a little||Tight quads,|
|Flexors good.||tighter than the right,||hip flexors good|
|ITB left, excellent,||hip flexors good|
|ITB right, below min|
|Shoulder assessment||Below minimum||Okay||Good|
|Push ups||10 (wimped out)||19|
Of course, this is all age dependent.
So, my body fat is 17%. This is in the good range, but I'd like to loose another 10Kg. The trainer (Aimee) reckons that with the weight (muscle) I'll put on from training, I should only get a 5Kg reduction, and that—in combination—will take my fat down to about 10% (and apparently, we don't want to go much lower than that).
So, some interesting changes and improvements. Clearly running has had a good impact, but I've been neglecting some parts of my body.
I wonder what I might do about my shoulders.
