Nissan 370Z NISMO.

The Nissan 370Z (known as the Fairlady Z Z34 in Japan) is a sports car manufactured by Nissan Motors. It was announced on October 29, 2008 and was first shown at an event in Los Angeles ahead of the 2008 Greater LA Auto Show, before being officially unveiled at the show itself. The 370Z is the sixth-generation of the Nissan Z-car line, succeeding the 350Z. Almost every piece and component of the 370Z has been redesigned from the previous model (350Z). It is powered by the VQ37VHR 3.7 L (230 cu in) DOHC V6 with Variable Valve and Lift Control and produces 332 bhp (248 kW; 337 PS). Power delivery to the rear wheels comes through a new 7-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters or 6-speed manual transmission which features the world's first synchronized down shift rev-matching system, SynchroRev Match. The SynchroRev Match system is only available with the sports package. The differential offered with the Sport Package is indicated to be a viscous limited slip differential. The new driveshaft is made from a carbon-fiber composite material.

What is a beep test?

Beep test is a commonly used maximal running aerobic test. It is also known as the 20 meter shuttle run test. This test involves continuous running between two lines 20m apart in time to recorded beeps. For this reason the test is also often called the 'beep' or 'bleep' test. The subjects stand behind one of the lines facing the second line, and begin running when instructed by the recording. The speed at the start is quite slow. The subject continues running between the two lines, turning when signaled by the recorded beeps. After about one minute, a sound indicates an increase in speed, and the beeps will be closer together. This continues each minute (level).

Fitness training program and diet

In this article I would like to share my fitness training program and diet that helped me to prepare for Nissan GT Academy powered by G-Drive. My weight was 90 kg (21 of July), when I started to use this program. As you know there is a fitness test which includes push-ups, plank and beep test. So you should be in good fit to pass it successfully. First of all, I decided to check my fitness conditions. I can make 45 push-ups, hold a plank for 2-30 minutes and reached the 9 level in beep test. I started to find different fitness programs and methods that will help me to improve the results.
