PAF 301 Written Performance Task

1. The two fitness tests I’m most proud of is my full sit ups in a minute and beep test results. The exercises I did in my three week fitness program to help me accomplish my 55 sit ups in a minute included a variety of core exercises. I’ve done side planks, sit ups, planks, russian twists, hollow holds, running mans, v-snaps, mountain climbers, plank jacks, wood chops and tuck extends.

To continue with my third goal of toning my rectus abdominis, I chose to complete an endurance workout because a strength workout would result in gaining muscle mass, which does not achieve my goal. In order to accomplish this, I have done planks, v-snaps, tuck extends, wood chops, side planks, russian twists, hollow holds, running mans, mountain climbers, crossover sit ups, banana rolls and windshield wipers.
