If you’re not satisfied, set a realistic goal for improvement:________________________________________________ Are you satisfied with your current level of cardiovascular fitness as evidenced in your daily life—your ability to walk, run, bicycle, climb stairs, do yard work, engage in recreational activities? If you’re not satisfied, set some realistic goals for improvement, such as completing a 5K run or 25-mile bike ride: What should you do next? Enter the results of this lab in the Preprogram Assessment column in Appendix D. If you’ve set goals for improvement, begin planning your cardiorespiratory endurance exercise program by completing the plan in Lab 3.2. After several weeks of your program, complete this lab again, and enter the results in the Postprogram Assessment column of Appendix D. How do the results compare? (Remember, it’s best to compare scores for the same test.) SOURCES: Kline, G. M., et al. 1987. Estimation of from a one-mile track walk, gender, age, and body weight.
