Push Up Test

The pushup test is a quick and easy way to assess the muscle strength and endurance of the chest and arms.

Begin in a push up position. In a controlled manner, lower your chest to floor level and immediately press back to the starting position. Maintain a consistent tempo without extended pauses between repetitions. The test stops when form breaks down, the rhythm is lost or slows significantly, or you are no longer able to continue due to fatigue or pain.

This test is an important measure of general fitness and can be easily performed anywhere. Compare your test results to the table below.
