Push-up Test

The push-up test measures muscular endurance of the upper body and pushing muscles. It is designed to establish a benchmark of one’s pushing abilities. It’s ideal that you perform the push-up test in a standard push-up position however push-ups can be done on your knees.

To perform a push-up test you’ll need a friend or a way to record yourself.

  • Begin in a push-up position.
    • Your ankles, knees, hips, shoulders and head should be in a straight line.
  • Lower your body to the floor or touch your chest to your partner’s fist.
  • Repeat for 60 seconds or until exhaustion whichever comes first.
  • Record your progress.
