You can estimate your shape with a simple small effort test.
You have to measure three heart rates (in pls/min with a HR monitor or with the pulsations from the wrist in 15 s, multiplied by 4):
|F1 after a rest of 2 min in a seated position.|
|F2 after 30 complete flexions of legs in 45 s (vertical bust).|
|F3 after a recovery of 1 min in a seated position.|
(F1+F2+F3-200)/10 gives the shape index (Ruffier's index).
|0 to 5||Excellent|
|5 to 10||Good|
|10 to 15||Mean|
|15 to 20||Feeble|
Attention ! This test is only indicative because not precise and not reliable.
