imasrxd saidI'm pretty sure I bombed this as a kid. In fact, I think my PE teacher took me aside to tell me how bad I sucked and that I should be taking my studies more seriously since there was no athletic future for me.
As for today, I'd like to think I'd alright. I max out my Navy PFT categories though I don't think that's a great test of fitness but probably similar to the President's Physical Fitness Test.
Mike: what is the actual President's Physical Fitness Test and can it be adapted to do as an adult? We should set up a competition here on RJ......hmmmmmmmm.
The Physical Fitness Test has five parts that measure muscular strength/endurance, cardio-respiratory endurance, speed, agility, and flexibility:
Curl-ups (or partial curl-ups)
Pull-ups (or right angle push-ups or flexed-arm hang)
V-sit reach (or sit and reach)
There is an adult test. It's a 1.5 mile run, sit-up, push-up, sit and reach, and a BMI assessment. I've got a spread sheet at work with normative results I can share with you. I've always wanted to invite parents to come take the test when their kids are taking theirs but I worry about embarrassing parents in front of their kids.
