Here were the results of my first assessment back in November
Situp – 17 in a minute
Pushup – 14 (modified on knees) in a minute
Jump Rope – 51 in a minute
Plank – 1:19 modified (we hold this as long as we can, then collapse into a heap of heavy breathing)
Hang time – 6 secs (don't laugh, this shit is hard)
1 mile – 15:10
Waist measurement: 42"
Hip measurement: 53.5 "
Today, I did the same physical assessment that was given two months ago. Drum roll please.... here are the results:
Situp – 23 in a minute
Pushup – 27 (4 military) in a minute
Rope – 87 in a minute
Plank – 28/1:33 total (again, holding the position as long as you can)
Hang – 8 secs
1 mile – 12:10
Waist measurement: 41.5 "
Hip measurement: 52.5 "
I am so pumped about taking 3 minutes off of my mile! That, for me, is the biggest and most compelling gain so far. Well, that and taking an inch and a half off my waist. That's pretty great too! So today, I'm celebrating. My body is healthy and my heart is glad.
