I have a fitness test I want to pass. This test will come in the next month. The test sounds kinda funny, but try it! Currently, I'm toast in about 2 minutes! I'm out of breath. To pass the test, you have to do it for 5 minutes and don't skip a beat! Skipping a beat or faultering in any way fails the test. I gotta pass this!!!!! Heres the test. Stand in front of a 12inch arobics type step. At 120 steps(beats) per minute, step up onto the step, then step back. Starting from the floor, you go up, up, down,down, up, up, down,down for 5 minutes. Heres an online metronome. You can check the speed at 120 beats a minute. Each click is a step. http://www.metronomeonline.com/index.php?/default.asp What would be the fastest/best way to "train" for this???? Part of my exercise is heavy weights to build thigh muscles and hard runs for 8 min on the treadmill. I have the 12 inch step. Help!!!!
