It's a fitness test, so speed, strength, and endurance are all important.
dont look hard
This is a nice change of pace from the usual get huge / lose fat / reppin 500s threads
all but the 3k that would be tough.
, but I don't know about the situps as well..
almost 2 miles in under 12 is the only issue maybe, and i'm out of shape, that and I don't fucking know how many times I can skip
to convert kgs into lbs, is it kg x 2.25 = lbs?
2.216 i think.
i think i could do all except the 3km run
The last 5. Why the hell do you need to have such great aerobic capacity to play badminton?
Because you wouldn't last very long if you didn't.
Average distance you have to cover in badminton in a single game is about 3.7 miles. There's no breaks during the game. None. You get 5 minutes to rest in between matches, and then it's on to the next game. The problem isn't just the distance. You have to change your distance few meters, so you need to use your muscles to stop and reverse direction. This is also a lot more tiring than just running in a straight line. In addition, you'll have to do lots of jumping as well when you are attacking offensively. There's also the burst of upper body strength that is required when you are returning shots. The aerobic capacity required to play badminton competitively is akin to being able to run up stairs maintaining 10km/hr continuously for an two hours, with 2 short breaks inbetween. The difference between just fast enough and just a little bit too slow is the difference between returning the shots and losing 15-0.
Quick article on it...
I'd master the 3km run......
and then die of a heart attack.
right now the run would be the easiest thing on there to do for me
1 pound = 0.45359237 kilograms
1 kilogram = 2.20462262 pound
Badminton is fun as shit. I used to have a net in my backyard.
I wish I could play badminton outside... that's be so kickass. The wind always gets in the way though
I remember being a freshman in highschool and we'd always play it in our gym class. I don't know how many jokes we made about "shuttlecocks".
Those were the days.
Here's the conversions.
3 kilometer = 1.86 miles
400m = 1 time around a track (aprox. .24 miles)
70 kilogram = 155lbs.
100 kilogram = 220lbs.
Pretty confident about every one but the skipping one, I would have to practice that a few times before I try it.
All. The 3km run would be the most difficult for me but should still be able to do it.
