Basic Fitness Tests
Why not check out our basic fitness tests to give you an idea on what to check out when you're starting to do your workouts. Our 12 fitness tests below are simple and quick to undertake.
With these tests make sure you are both honest and accurate with your recordings, and remember to keep notes of all your results. The best way to get accurate results is to see your doctor, join a gym or hire a personal trainer.
Work within your own limits when doing the test, you don't need to do all of them, as a reasonable fitness level is required for some of the tests.
|TEST 1 RESTING HEART RATE|
The best time to take this is when you first awake in the morning, as this is when you're at rest. If you can take the recordings over three days to find an average, this will give you a more accurate reading.
|Test 2 (Blood pressure)|
Having your blood pressure taken is a very easy operation, however make sure that the equipment used and the person taking the reading knows how to do it. Some electrical machines have been shown to be inaccurate.
