The President's Challenge Adult Fitness Test

Muscular Strength and Endurance

Muscular strength and endurance is critical to both your health and ability to carry out daily activities, such as performing household tasks (yard work, carrying groceries) or job-related tasks (lifting or moving heavy objects). There are many ways to measure your muscular strength and endurance, often with a focus on a specific group of muscles.

This section describes two fitness tests for muscular strength and endurance: the Half Sit-Up and the Push-Up.
