@JPH-i will wait and see what you come up with.I am pro-weights and was just trying to make the correlation that strength training not only helps with hunting...dragging deer,climbing...preventing injury,,,,but that the by-product of it was fat loss....a plus if you will.
Fair enough. The idea here is to pinpoint weakness so that an individual can address them through programing. Depending on the individual and the weakness found, weights may well be the answer.
Also it should be understood that one of the goals is to make this accessible to a wide range of people. For example, I would much rather use a weighted sled/tire drag as one of the events, but I know very few people have access to something like that. The 5 yd. dot drills are a surprisingly good substitute and they can be done by virtually everyone. The same goes for free weights. There are a lot of people who would avoid a test that required them, either because of a lack of access or because they do not know how to perform the lifts safely. Every graduate of elementary school PE knows how to do a pullup and a dip.
I think I have the thing laid out. I've run through several versions of the evaluation and tweaked the scoring. I just need to shoot a little instructional video and post it to youtube. This way I can post a detailed explanation in both a written and visual format. Might take a few days.
