“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.”
– Bill Gates
Do you know what you’re made of, where you stand, what kind of fight you can bring? Most people live their entire lives never finding out what they’re capable of or what their potential is, but you’re not most people.
The first step – you have to establish a baseline – a physical understanding as well as a time (in this case) that represents your fitness level and physical capacity at your starting point. It’s not complicated – go through this workout to the best of your ability and log your time.
In 30, 60, and 90 days you are going to repeat this baseline workout exactly as you executed each movement the first time. This is where we test the quality and effectiveness of the diet and training we’ve been doing over the past 30, 60, or 90 days. Did your time improve? Great, let’s improve it some more. Is it practically the same? Ok, it’s time to reevaluate how we’re exercising and how we’re fueling our progress.
What better way than to use a workout called “Baseline” which has been used by thousands to establish and retest their fitness level.
The Baseline Workout:
Each movement must be completed before moving onto the next, we call this a “chipper”
500 meter row (substitute 30 burpees if you don’t have access to a rower)
40 air squats
30 sit ups
20 push ups
10 pull ups
Remember to record your time and we’d love for you to share it with us via email, Instagram, or over the phone. This is not a comparison or a judgment game, but you can count on us following up with you in a month or so to check in on your retest time.
