THE PRESIDENTS ADULTS FITNESS TEST CONSISTS OF
A ONE MILE WALK (26 LAPS)
OR A 1.5 MILE RUN (39) LAPS
Alert! We suggest that you DO NOT take this test until you are routinely walking for 15 to 20 minutes several times per week.
Alert! Do not try to take this test unless you run at least 20 minutes continuously three or more times a week. If you do not do any type of physical activity (walking, swimming, bicycling) DO NOT try to take this test.
In the standard push-up test, you push your body up and down using muscles in your arms, shoulders and chest, while keeping your body straight with your feet serving as the pivot point. Your body weight is your workload. Females can reduce the load by having their knees touching the floor and acting as the pivot point. In this test, only the upper body is the load. We are going to use standard push-ups and modified push-ups as our tests for upper body and shoulder muscular strength and endurance.
The Half Sit-Up Test*
One of the most frequently measured muscle groups is the abdominal (stomach) muscles. Several tests (for example, sit-up and curl-up tests) have been developed to measure mainly abdominal muscular strength and endurance. We are going to use an abdominal muscular strength and endurance test called the “YMCA Half Sit-Up” test, which is a curl-up test since you lift your trunk only partially off the floor.
SIT AND REACH (FLEXIBILITY)
This test, while not perfect, provides some information about the hamstring muscle group. The more the hamstrings allow one to reach forward, the less it restricts movement of the pelvis.
