Why is it important to have Test and Retest workouts? Yesterday was a test for a month out. Today is a retest of a workout from December.
Well, first: they act as benchmarks for our fitness. How do you know if you’re actually improving if you can’t measure that progress?
Two: knowing what traits we are testing allows us to set up programming to improve upon the intricacies of said test. This is and always has been the reasoning behind our programming. This is why we use a whiteboard to take the data towards the end of class. This is why coaches ask you how the workout went. Give us answers! The more detailed, the better!
Three: it gives you a tangible, measurable, repeatable, and observable goal to reach/obliterate. Isn’t that scientific?
