Sort of on topic: I was going to try to get guys doing a tabata competition at work. Monday do push-ups, Tuesday sit-ups, Wednesday double unders, etc. Something simple that can be done during a little downtime at work. Post your numbers on a chart on the door.

Problem is, my senior chief walked in on me doing the push-ups and started ing about it. Claimed it didn't look professional (never mind that the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy does it with young sailors at his conferences). Then he said exercise should be done in the gym (great, go 15 to 20 minutes away to do a quick 3 minute exercise). Oh, and having a chart of exercise results is bad and unprofessional (this was the week after the mock prt).

He probably just had a bad day, but my respect for him drop quite a bit that time.
I like your thought process, shame about the comments of your chief as its always good to do these tests and of course always good to share.
Best of luck

Re: 2 minute tests

Just found a video we recorded in August of max double unders in 2 minutes.
Its loading to you tube as I type
Managed 187 double unders in the 2 minutes.
Will post the link to the video later on for proof

Re: 2 minute tests

Marcus, thanks for the comment.

On topic, here's a nice 2 minute test: Max reps of (movement) at 25% your 1rm in two minutes. Post load and reps to comments.

So, if you're 1rm back squat is 380# then try max reps for 95# for two minutes.

Obviously this works with Tabata.

Tabata CFT: One week after a CFT, using 25% your 1rm do a Tabata with Squat, Push Press and Deadlift. No rest between rounds. Post total reps to comments.

Thanks Charles that makes a lot of sense and seems like it would be a great test.
What do you think about relating the load to body weight ratio?

They make a lot sense when it comes to competition. Evens the playing field really well. Even with training, it helps change things up which is while Linda is so popular I guess. However, it seemed for advancing my training I got better results using a calculated 1rm as a guide (since I was doing SS, I'd use 7/6th my 5rm). While my body weight was going down (lowering BW based exercises) my 1rm went up.

All very interesting bits of research
