Push-Up Test

Designed to measure the muscular endurance of the upper body, primarily the pushing muscles.
– In a push-up position (ankles, knees, hips,
shoulders, and head in a straight line), the
client lowers the body to touch a closed fist
under their chest, and repeats for 60 sec or
exhaustion without compensating the push-up
position.
– The number is recorded to be compared to when the client is reassessed.
