I did this test a long time ago to see how strong my upper body strength really was. It tells you how fitness rating based on how many pushups you can do in a minute or until you can’t do any more. I call it the pushup test. I first tried doing it after lifting heavy for about 3 months with little cardio. It’s been about 6 years since then and I wanted to compare my results.
The pushup test is an easy DIY measure of your current fitness level that requires a timer. I used my smartphone for the new video and has someone help the first time around. If you are a female, the results are based on modified pushups so if you want to do them on your knees, you’ll have a better chart to compare yourself on.
