So many questions today... anyway, if you were to have a fitness test right now, would you be surprised if you were less than excellent in any category, eg. cardio (including recovery), strength (push ups and such), balance, core, flexibility?


To be completely honest, I'd be surprised if I were lower than excellent in anything but flexibility.

The heart rate recovery does depend on age but I don't have the chart handy for the step test. As you get older, your heart rate recovery rate

I have a bone to pick with that core test. :) They give NO middle ground - no gray area. I have rather strong core muscles but I can probably only do about 1:30 on the elbow planks (I have never tried to alternate lifting limbs).

Is there a good website that with a list of those fitness tests?

No, I just google and find what I think seems reasonable. The ACE fitness manual has a whole section on fitness testing but I don't remember anything for the core.
