Retest of NCFIT Baseline II today. Last time testing was 10/2/19.

Part 1

On a 12:00 running clock, run 1 Mile. Then in remaining time, Max Meters on Rower or Max Distance on Bike.

*Rest minimum 5:00 before part 2.

Compared to last time, I tempered the run a bit coming in at 5:55 compared to 5:43 last time. However, that allowed me to get more meters – 1465m vs. 1412m. My goal is to get 1500m next time around.

Part 2

12 min AMRAP:

6 Strict Pull-ups
12 Hand Release Push-ups
18 Sit-ups

I hit 6+20 for an 18 rep improvement over last time. Two PRs today!


Hopped into the noon class for “The 20/20 Experience,” which is a new benchmark workout for NC Fit.

20 min AMRAP:

  • 20 Box Jumps (24″)
  • 20 Push Press (115#)

*Every 3 minutes including at the start, perform 20 situps.

I ended up getting 5+25 Rx. The barbell got heavy! I started with 8/6/6 trying to keep sets short and fast, but at the end, I was doing 5/5/5/5. Probably should’ve stuck with 95# and moved faster!


Barbara! I feel really good after the ruck/no gym yesterday. Felt ready to hit this one hard.

5 rounds for time:

  • 20 Pull-ups
  • 30 Push-ups
  • 40 Sit-ups
  • 50 Air Squats

Rest 3 minutes between rounds.

My round times were:

  1. 3:17
  2. 3:47
  3. 5:14
  4. 5:17
  5. 5:27

Total time (including rest): 35:02

I really fell off the pace in round 3. The situps mainly were what slowed me down. I could’ve certainly pushed harder on those! Goal next time: Be more consistent!


Since we’re traveling this weekend, I don’t know that I’ll get in my usual workout on Saturday. So, I elected to get in M-F this week instead, which has been challenging with Quinn at home with me all week.


21 min AMRAP with a 65 sit-up buy in:

  • 7 Burpees
  • 11 Push-ups
  • 22 KB Swings (53/35)

I hit 7+19 Rx. Broke the swings started in the 3rd or 4th round (16/6).
