How do you rank?


The American College Of Sports Medicine publishes fitness standards that anyone can compare themselves in well-defined fitness tests to the general population. If you test yourself and you do not fare well, hopefully it is a signal to change your behavior.


Below is a sample taken from ACSM table on the push-up.
