Bicycling mag. this month has a fitness test. The easier option, to test out your leg strength, is to stand on one leg, grasp the opposite ankle, and squat, bending at the knee, until your thigh is parallel to the floor (or as low as you can get). Then stand back to vertical, using only the one leg. You can use your free hand for balance, but remember not to use it to lift.
How many can you do?
I don't have the mag here so I don't exactly remember the scoring scale. Something like...
<5 - Dust off your bike.
5-7 - pretty good
7-9 - Your legs are NOT a problem.
>9 "Wait up!!"
(If anyone has a copy handy, they could correct my scoring scale if needed)
So, How many can YOU do?
FTR, I DID do this, but will reserve posting my "score" until I can be sure to avoid embarassing myself.
