Day 1 – #HOF21DAYS – Fitness Test #1

Today you will start the challenge off with a fitness test. The main benefit of the test is to establish your strengths and weaknesses, whether you are a beginner or an experienced athlete. You will compare your test results 2 more times throughout this challenge, so work really hard to gauge your improvements. You have 21 days, which is not a long period of time, but with your dedication and willingness to eat cleaner, rest more and exercise more, you can see a change that’s worth documenting? Take a photo of yourself while you’re at it. The video below  is the fitness test. The video has 60 second blocks of time set out, so you can perform the exercises while I perform them. Make sure to accurately count each rep as outlined. Do your best!!!!

Need a breakfast idea? Recovering post-workout is very important for your health. As much as it will benefit you today, it will set you up for a successful workout tomorrow. You are refilling your glycogen tank and you are basically “topping” off your storage tank. So don’t skip it all all, even if it’s a protein packed smoothie.
