I think they're good general guidelines to strive for if you want to be well rounded.

Like said earlier though you may have more trouble getting some and others you may get easily depending on your bodyweight, anthropometry, genetics, etc.

Fun little exercise but ultimately meaningless in the grand scheme of training.

funny, but after all the discussion on standards (which i agree are kinda pointless), i wanna test myself on a lot of those levels that your link stated. i dunno if it will change my training at all, but now i'm just curious what my numbers are for some of those things.

well I needed a goal and was curious how does one train for such a feat if one is chronically ill and not an athlete?

I am more proud that I figured something out which will even get the least talented to meet the goal than of the feat itself. And I once could do this on my off-days without breaking a sweat...

and I am chronically ill, broke my back had hernias, brain surgery, a battered man with enough scars to please a company.

now you tell me is that an elite feat??!

You proved that things are achievable if you put your mind to it. Particularly if you are as bloody minded as you are Dr. Puetz.

You should be able to squat down and stand up ten times, jog a mile without stopping, throw a baseball from the mound to home plate, paddle a canoe without tipping, carry a small TV up three flights of stairs, wrestle for a couple minutes, hit a softball, do a somersault, make a free throw, pick up a 100# stone, take steps two a time, dive into the water and swim a quarter mile, ride a bicycle, jump over a pumpkin, and pick up children. Everything else is gravy.

Very nice. I think that's truly what people NEED to do. I WANT to squat 500 lbs for reps, but you're right, beyond being able to live a functional life, the rest is just gravy.
