I don’t agree with all and some are just downright hard to set up logistically…swim 700 yards? I’ve had to go through numerous fitness tests over the years (presidential fitness test, Cooper Standards, etc..).
My personal thoughts on a fitness standard is a bit more simple and good for males and females or really any age.
1) run a 5k in under 30 minutes at any given time
2) bench press 1.5x your own body weight
3) deadlift 2x your body weight
I try to make sure no matter what my focus is that I can achieve all 3 of those things and every so often I’ll go out and test myself to be sure.
I’m curious as to how others personally test their fitness standards.
