Measuring your fitness level, using timed tests, is one way to track your progress. 

The Push-Up Test measures muscular strength and endurance.  A timed push-up test can be done anywhere, making it a convenient way to test your fitness level from home.

Equipment Needed:  A stop watch or timer set for one minute.

Goal: To do as many push ups as you can in one minuteAssume a traditional push-up position, from your toes.  Get ready, get set, GO! Press yourself up with arms fully extended and lower yourself back until your chest is a few inches from the floor, without fully touching the floor. Repeat as many times as you can in one minute.  Rest only in the “up” position if necessary.

This Test MeasuresStrength and endurance in your chest, shoulders, and triceps.

Scoring: The chart below shows the age-adjusted standards based on guidelines published by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).  The chart says "modified" for females, but I strongly encourage you to do them from your toes as well - challenge yourself.  

**My age is 31 and my score for the one minute pushup challenge was 42 pushups from my toes.
