    This has had me confused for some time. I've had people tell me you should achieve 60 - 85 situps in under two minutes, and 50 - 60 pressups in the same time. But when I listen to the audio tapes where you do it to the bleep, the situps for example take three minutes for the bleeps to reach 85, so do you go by the bleeps, or not?

    Does this still stand? And do they still perform repetitions to the beep?

    Happy days, practiced at 4am this morning and hit 11.1.
    Any training methods to improve stamina and endurance to help increase that effort? Because That was flat out as a best effort and I’m wanting a higher score

    HIIT training. It's all about getting that heart rate up as quickly as possible and holding it for a long as possible. 6x best effort sprints for 30 secs, jogging inbetween reps to lower heart rate. That combined with your road running will see the biggest difference but any cardio sport in time will increase your VO2 max.

    @ Ninja_stoker is this PDF still valid for today ? Nothing has changed? As I see the initial post is quiet old. Many thanks.
