The “Weighted Mile” is a great staple for those of you that want to see if your fitness level is increasing. The best way to measure fitness is to test your work capacity, or power output. This is done by taking the total load/weight multiplying it by distance divided by time. Simply stated, how long does it take you to perform the task at hand. This is why we time our workouts.
