Know Where You Stand
Start your new exercise program by testing your initial fitness levels. Chart your BMI, time a one-mile walk and record your pulse before and after, see how many push-ups you can do, and stretch next to a yard stick to test your flexibility. Knowing your starting aerobic and muscular fitness levels will help you set goals, track progress and stay motivated.
Do each of these activities this Monday or schedule a time to do them during the week.
Write your findings in a journal and retest yourself every few weeks to see how you’re doing.
