Why is it Important to Be Tested?
Muscular Endurance: Ability of a group of muscles to exert a sub-maximal force numerous times. Two tests commonly used to measure muscular endurance are push-ups and curl-ups. Push-ups measure upper body endurance and curl-ups measure mid-torso endurance.
What is done with the information gathered?
A report of your fitness assessment will be discussed with you. To objectively identify areas that may require emphasis in your exercise prescription, consideration will be given to the established norms for various levels of physical fitness. The purpose of this assessment is not to place you in a fitness category. Rather, we feel it is more helpful to measure your current physical capacities and compare these with regularly scheduled fitness assessments overtime.
