Speed and explosive power are important components of success in many aspects of running, fitness and life.

The distances across the three efforts will then be summed together and points awarded accordingly.

Week 2

These runs test the individual's aerobic capacity and the ability of the heart and lungs to provide the body with oxygen for exercise. This is important in running, fitness and sport as it tests the individual's cardiovascular system's ability to continuously provide the muscle with adequate levels of oxygen to perform.

Week 3

  • Wall Sit Test

  • Jelly Legs

Strength week consists of two basic strength tests, Plank Test and Wall Sit Test, to measure the strength in your core and quad muscles.
