Good question. Its true you will see a lot of guys that look like their in great shape but cannot run a mile or have good control/balance of their bodies.
Personally I feel as though I'm in prime condition in terms of strength.
balance and endurance are good. Longest run I've completed was 16 miles more or less. I was not actually unable to go further, that is just the longest distance I have actually measured out.
When I was in high school and a bit lighter my balance was a bit better. When I was 16 I could push out 110 push ups straight and somewhere around 120 sit ups straight in 2 minutes. Now I am at a heavier weight and although I can bench more or press more chest wise I max out at about 70 push ups and 80 to 100 sit ups in 2.
Pull ups around 16 or 18 dead hang.
Flexibility is always improving and since running and swimming more I've noticed it is very important.
Their are still some things I can improve upon. A lot of times I feel like I am sacrificing one thing for another, and its true because you can't have it all. A person who is carrying a lot of muscle on them is not going to be able to run as fast as someone who is lighter. I personally want to have a healthy balance.
No, not at all. I work out on almost a daily basis. I do martial arts and yoga heavily, along with weight lifting and cardio. And yet, my body is awful. No muscle definition anywhere and a chubby stomach. It sucks.
I'm in way better then I thought I was. Had an fitness assessment done recently .I always knew I was very strong & flexible but was amazed by my endurance and stamina .On the stress test I ran way longer then either I or they thought I could heart rate was good recovery very quick . I'm 45 and was told I'm in better shape then a lot of people half my age.
I think my aesthetics perfectly match my fitness ability if I base my 'fitness' on your descriptions. However, I am very bad at long distance running and any type of sports that involve a ball. (not much hand eye co-ordination, I guess)
I have huge legs, but they're incredibly strong, but I'm also strong in my arms. My back is my weak place 'cause I fell off a horse and hurt my spine.
I actually have "hypi-flexy" joints or something like that. My thumb can bend down and touch the inside of my wrist, and sometimes does it backwards to. I can put my foot on my head. My joints are constantly clicking due to loose ligaments.
I have unusually good balance and aim.
I go to the gym and do cycling and running and some weights. I can go for about 20-45minutes of heavy breathing and sweating without stopping.
I wouldn't say I'm fit as a fiddle but considering I'm a UK size 16 (give or take a size depending on where I shop) I don't reflect my ability.
I put B because I look fairly fit, but I'm pretty fast and have excellent lateral movement cause I play tennis. Also my flexibility and balance are good, but I'll admit I'm pretty weak as far as strength is concerned.
