Here is fitness test #2 … carrying on from the FIRST Test I gave you (the table test).

A lot of you wrote back to tell me just how difficult GETTING into that position was, let alone holding it.

One fine lady on LinkedIn even commented on the sheer efficacy of this exercise and for those that didn’t read the dispatch on that –  let me know, and I’ll send the link over!

A former gymnast and cheer leader, so the lady KNOWS what she’s talking about.

Anyway, this morning I had a mission to complete.

My daughter’s made a mess in the playroom (as usual, hehe) and being the “benevolent father” I am (and being my wife seems to be a stickler for cleanliness), guess who the cleaning up tasks fell upon (at least in terms of removing the toys etc spread all over the place if not the actual sweeping and mopping, of course).

Yours truly!

Was going to do it after dinner last night … but ended up doing it this morning (wife asked me “why I’d want to do it after dinner”, hehe).

And as I did so, the test #2 came to mind.

It is this – and it consists of two simple parts.

Or one, actually.

I was going to include this exercise in 0 Excuses Fitness, but didn’t.

I DID however included it in Kiddie Fitness, and those that have bought the book know what a great exercise it is – not just for kids – but for adults too.

It’s the DUCK waddle, my friend.

Simply get down into an Asian style squat (like a duck, on your haunches).

For what it’s worth, the Asian style squat isn’t the Hindu squat done on your toes.

It’s a version that for most people (at least those of us “Westerners” used to sitting on chairs and toilets hehe) find INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT to do … or even GET into position, for that matter.

Stand flat footed, and drop down, with feet pointing out at an angle until your butt’s almost at the floor. That’s it.

Here’s how we’ll grade this one.

If you can GET into this position, and STAY in it for at least 5 seconds – 10 points.

If you can hold for at least 20-25 seconds – 20 points.

If you can hold for until a minute … 40 points.

You’ll see the points DOUBLE as we go along and when you DO the thing, you’ll realize why!

And if you can MOVE around in this position … well, you get 30 points. That’s moving around in this position for at least 30 seconds without stopping, my friend.

And if you can sum it all up and get to a 100 without cheating – write back, and let me know. I’ll let out a holla that can be heard WORLDWIDE, hehe, and I’ll also hook you up with a special discount coupon for the site if you so choose!

Alright, my friend.

That’s test #2.

CAN you pass it?

The clock starts … now!
