I did the Walking a mile for my first Assessment or formally known as the RockPort Fitness Walking Test. I completed this Fitness Test on Trevilian Way because that is the street that I live on.
The equation that I used to figure out my V02 max. The formula for the equation is 132.853-(.0769 x Weight)-(.3877 x Age)+(6.315 x Gender)-(3.2649 x Time)-(.1565 x HR)= Answer in ML/KG/MIN.
Male= 1, Time=9 minutes and 42 seconds, Age=19, HR=(Resting=56 BPM, After exercise=88 BPM), Weight=210, Gender=1
Answer= 71.1257 ML/KG/MIN.
Reflection: This test shows you where you stand in your fitness level and doesn’t take any time at all. I really enjoyed doing this test because the walk on a nice day was great and I got to see where I stood in compare to my friends.
Assessment 5-3 is the next fitness assessment I completed. The Sling test is what this test is called and it is to see how flexible your muscles really are. I tested around 1 inch off of the floor so I tested around the excellent category, you should try it and find out where you stand!
Reflection: It was pretty fun to compete against my roommates to see who was more flexible, and not surprisingly I was the most flexible out of my group of friends!
Assessment Activity 5-4 is the Trunk Extension Assessment shows how flexible your abdominal and hip flexor muscles.
Reflection: This test made me realize that I need to stretch more because I scored more in the Average category. You should see what you score!
In the Assessment Activity 7-1 Using BMI to Estimate Body-Weight Status and Calculate Desirable Body Weight.
Reflection: I had to use a scale and equations to figure out what my BMI is and how much weight it made me realize I wanted to lose. Here is a picture of what my calculations were.
In Assessment 13-3 Are You at Risk for Diabetes? Answering certain questions to find out if you are questionable for soon adopting to the fact that you may have Diabetes.
Reflection: While answering the questions yes or no to all of the questions it was nice to see that I will not have Diabetes unless my lifestyle drastically changes in the near future.
