To those who are up to it: why not compare our beep test scores? The beep test is basically a test of cardiovascular fitness (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-stage_fitness_test). The steps are:

1. Measure out a flat, straight stretch of 20 metres/65.62 feet/21.87 yards. Mark the ends.
2. Download this audio file: http://www.mediafire.com/file/hzsygm1s60v1mwu/BeepTest.mp3
3. Put audio file on MP3 player.
4. Run from one side to another when the audio file tells you to.
5. When you can't run any longer, take note of the last stage you completed. This is your score.
6. Post results.

I managed 7.5 but was nearly dead by the end of it.

I could probably run back and forth through my hall, but then my parents would ask what the shit am I doing. I don't really know how to form "because some internet guy told me to" into an acceptable response

Well its not like you have to run.. I just would like to compare fitness levels with my brohnos. Having a park nearby and not having crippling social anxiety, of course, helps.

I've been doing crunches and stationary bike to keep my heart healthy and my gut less jellylike.

Not working too well ;_;

Maybe you should try do a bit more. My routine that prevents me from having to go outside is:

-Spine stretching. Stand up straight and clasp your hands behind your head. Bend down quickly and touch your elbows to your knees. Rise, repeat 12 times.

-Deep Knee Bends. Stand shoulder width apart hands on waist. Squat all the way down. Rise, repeat until failure.

-Calf Raises. Stand with feet a little less than shoulder width apart. Rise up on your toes and lower yourself down. Repeat until failure.

-Pushups. You should know this, just make sure you are doing them correctly.

-Dips. Sit on the ground. Elevate your feet by placing them on a chair or bed. Lift and lower yourself with your arms until failure.

-Leg raises. Sit on the floor with your hands behind you, propping you up and your legs straight out and close together. Quickly lift your legs up until your body forms a “v” shape. Lower, repeat until failure.

-Bicycle crunches. Lie flat on the floor with your lower back pressed to the ground. Put your hands beside your head. Bring knees up to about a 45-degree angle and slowly go through a bicycle pedal motion. Touch your left elbow to your right knee, then your right elbow to your left knee.

Also I am up to 8.2 on the beep test, just gotta keep pushing. I went from 3.2 when I started 3 months ago, so there are results if you just work hard.
