It popped up, so I opened it, and thought it was interesting.

0-20 no big deal.
After 20, they got tough.
I went to failure, which was 38. I suck!

C'mon Man! I Failed at 56, which is my age. That last one almost killed me.

I do 50 every day so im good.

I heard something on the radio last year that kind of caught me by surprise though. They said if you can sit down indian style on the floor and stand up without the use of your hands or stretching your legs out then you are in really good physical shape. I consider myself to be in really good shape for my age so I tried it as soon as I got out of the truck. Its not easy but I can do it. Surprised me how hard it was though.

I am 45 and can still do 80 in 2 minutes. So I can still max my 18 year old pt test. I can do about 100, but not in 2 minutes.

I did chest today. But then I did a 15 minute plank on my 55th birthday, last year.

I can do that. Rough concrete is way easier than slick concrete.

I was wearing full bunker gear, SCBA, and was on air.
