Noosir. I didn't think it was really worth mentioning.

I was at the gym the other night and at the end of my work out I had some time to kill so I was trying to find George's post about the coopers test on my iphone to see how I did.  I figured this could be a good quick reference for anyone wanting to see how they rate against some of our more challenging fitness tests, the BFT not being one of them  ;D
