Sounds like real-life. 3 fitness tests you should be able to pass article recently posted on Fox News, asked readers to evaluate their physical health. Here are the 3 simple tests to judge your health:
- Waist size less than half your height (Failed that one)
- Hold the plank position (strict push-up form) for 2 minutes (Failed that one)
- Get to and up from a seated position with minimal use of hands and knees. Score is 1-10 with losing a point for every use of hand or knee. Score less than 3 was associated with a five time higher likelihood of dying versus people who got an 8 or above. (Got a 7) This was not a controlled double blind study.

Being a health care provider is a stressful job, so it is imperative that you take care of the shell surrounding the brain by working the core surrounding your waistline with a consistent strength and conditioning program such as Yoga, Pilates, TRX, Personal Training, etc. Working out is a Sisyphus-like task, but does have its rewards.
