For today’s stack schedule with shortened periods (31min ea), we will be doing our second initial fitness assessment of the semester: Max Effort Pull-Ups! This assessment will test the fitness component of upper-body strength.
While some of you already have the ability to complete one or more strict pull-ups, most of you do not (yet!)…so we will bring out the resistance bands to see just how close we are. Details for scoring are located below.
MAX EFFORT PULL-UPS: _____
Determine how many strict pull-ups you can complete. If you do not have a strict pull-up, determine what the smallest resistance band is that will allow you to complete a strict pull-up (Red, then Black, then Purple, then Green)…and then score max effort (# of pull-ups) for that band.
Report # of strict pull-ups (or # of strict pull-ups using which color resistance band used).
Ex: 4P (4 Purple)
Ex: 3R (3 Red)
Ex: 1G (1 Green)
