What are the ILEA' physical fitness training requirements?

There are five (5) physical fitness components that will be measured in one day as a battery of tests.

1. Vertical Jump. This measures leg power, and consists of measuring how high a person jumps.

2. One Minute Sit Ups. This measures abdominal, or trunk, muscular endurance. While lying on his/her back, the student will be given one (1) minute to do as many bent leg sit ups as possible.

3. 300 Meter Run. This measures anaerobic power, or the ability to make an intense burst of effort for a short time period or distance. This component consists of sprinting 300 meters as fast as possible.

4. Maximum Push Ups. This measures the muscular endurance of the upper body. This component consists of doing as many push ups as possible until muscular failure.

5. 1.5 Mile Run. This measures aerobic power or cardiovascular endurance (stamina over time). To complete this component you must run/walk, as fast as possible, a distance of 1.5 miles.

Testing will be conducted in the first week of training and again in the last week. Each component is scored separately and the standard must be met on each and every one.
