2 minute tests

We have been doing a number of different 2 minute tests which are a good quick test and let you have a comparable score if you are going to repeat at any given time interval like monthly.
So far we have done:
Pull ups
Push Ups
Dead Lifts
Squats

The list obviously goes on and on as to what you can do.

Any ideas of what has been done or what you think would make a good 2 minute test would be appreciated.

Re: 2 minute tests

Try doing a six round Tabata with those events also. You get your two minutes spread out over three, getting your theoretical max.

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.

For squats we used 50% body weight and deadlifts 75% body weight.

The key in order to measure progress is to use the same weight each time and of course to maintain strict form.

To make things equally fair for all I think it should always be a % of body weight.

You name it and we will give it a shot.

2 minutes can be a very long time when you are smashed to bits. Great tests though
