BODIFIT® ATHLETE CATEGORIES
1. JUMP - LONG JUMP
With this test we measure motor characteristics, explosiveness and takeoff strength of the legs, takeoff coordination and landing coordination. The more the individual is explosive – in motor balance, the longer leap she or he can achieve. Each candidate carry out a maximum of 3 jumps. The takeoffs must be two-legged, and the longest jump from the landing point to the takeoff line is measured.
2. SQUAT - ONE LEG SQUAT
Exercising may seem almost impossible to a complete beginner, but with good technique and emphasis on flexibility, she or he can quickly achieve a good result. For performance of one leg squat the strength of the front and back thigh muscles is needed, then coordination and balance, the flexibility of the hocks, hip and spine. The exercise should be performed in the predicted pace and with each leg individually. The movement must be in complete amplitude, with the pelvis lowering below the knee level, and when lifting, the body is completely aligned. The total score of the squats of left and right leg is entered in the score sheet.
3. PULL-UP - PULL-UPS
With a wide grip in the pull-up, on a straight bar, we drag the body in a way the chest touches the rod or that the beard exceeds the height of the rod. After the lift, we slowly return back to the starting pull-up position. We perform in a certain speed and rhythm. With this exercise we present our flexibility strenght and coordination of the upper part of the body. Only totally performed repetitions counts. The total number of perfectly performed repetitions is entered in the evaluation sheet.
4. MOBILITY - SIT AND REACH
Exercise which presents the flexibility of the back of the body. It is carried out by sitting along the measuring device, with the elbows moving the slider to the final point of ones abilities. The movement is carried out slowly, controlled, without thrusts. There is only one chance to perform. The data are obtained for hip and spine flexibility.
5. TORSO PRESS - BENCH PRESS
In this workout, 10 slow, rhythmically defined repetitions should be performed in a complete amplitude, without rebound from the top of the breast to the initial upper position. The torso must remain stable and the feet raised to the torso without support. A series of ten repetitions can be performed in three attempts. The maximum weight achieved in ten repetitions counts.
6. ISOMETRIC - DUMBBELL CRUCIFIX
This exercise indicates the strength and durability of the torso, shoulder girdle and arms. Men and women hold a certain “male” or “female” weight in a basic horizontal position, where the palm and elbows must be at the height of the chest. The seconds of retention are entered in the evaluation sheet.
7. AGILITY - CUBE SPRINT
Exercise where agility, explosiveness, coordination and endurance are expressed. In the shape of an hourglass, the competitor must bypass four checkpoints placed in the form of a cube. The exercise should be carried out in four consecutive sets without touching the control points. The competitors’ time after four beaten sets is entered in the evaluation sheet.
