Awesome series of articles, Jack. As humans, we tend to get exercise grooved, doing what we do well over and over again. These 4 areas of testing inspire us to check our actual fitness against our perceived fitness over a range of measures. Much thanks!!

Thanks for reading! Much appreciated.

You are absolutely correct. We tend to default to what we’re good at to the exclusion of everything else. This is the reason there are tons of “weight people” and “cardio people” but very few who give both training modalities the equal balance they deserve.

These tests provide an easy way to gauge what we’re good at and where we need to improve to ensure we aren’t blindly ignoring weak spots. And they make goal setting (with SMART goals) extremely easy.
