NerdStrong Gym - DEX Testing
For the first test we had to do 2 minute max reps for the following, Push Ups, Sit Ups, Kettlebell Swings, Squats and Pull Ups/Ring Rows. So I did 33 Push Ups in 2 minutes, up about 12 Push Ups from my last max. I did 40 Sit Ups in 2 minutes which is impressive for me because I'm extremely slow at sit ups. I did 56 Kettlebell Swings in 2 minutes which I was somewhat disappointed in. I was hoping to hit 60. I manged to do 51 Squats in 2 minutes but expected to do better since I'm really good a Squats. For the Pull Ups/Ring Rows I can actually do 2 Pull Ups, but I went for the Ring Rows for 2 minutes and did 35 of them which I was happy with. So overall I was satisfied with my 2 minute test this go round.
We then did 3 rounds of :30 seconds of Box Jumps and then :60 seconds of Box Step Ups with no rest in between, before finishing the workout with TABATA Planking.
It was a rough workout but a good one. We test again in October so hopefully I will improve on those numbers next time.
