David Teetsel Health Related Fitness Fitness Plan April 1, 2013 Section 1 My current level of fitness is: Pacer:

72 Section 2 My goal for the week fit program is to loose ten pounds of weight and to increase my flexibility by two inches all around. Section 3 My program will be a seven week program; I will run 4 days a week and work on flexibility every day except on Sundays which will be my day off. For flexibility on the days I do cardio I will stretch after I finish my cardio exercises to help with my flexibility and it will also help to prevent any injuries I may get from my cardio exercises. I will use the static style of stretching for my flexibility exercises. Along with my cardio and flexibility exercises I will eat a well-balanced and nutritional diet that will also help with the weight loss. Week 1: Flexibility- calves stretch, hamstring stretch, shoulder stretch, triceps stretch, back stretch. I will hold each stretch for 10 seconds for the first week.

Section 4 In order to assess myself on the progress I have gained I will use the four flexibility tests that we used to pre assess our flexibility. They are the zipper right and left arms, and the sit and reach left and right leg. I will start these on the third week on Saturday afternoons after my weekly run. I will continue to do them every week after this right up to my seventh week of my fitness plan. I will also use a scale starting on the third week to weigh myself and see how much weight I have lost. I will continue to do this right up through the seventh week of my fit plan.
