Push Up

  • Record the number of push-ups you can do in a row for the duration of 60 seconds.
  • In order to perform a legal push-up, the athlete must lower their head and upper body to the floor, touch the chest to the floor, and return to the starting position (arms extended straight at the top of the pushup). The athlete’s back must remain straight.
  • The score is the total number of push-ups you can do in 60 seconds without stopping.  

Sit Up

  • Record the number of sit-ups you can do in two minutes.
  • Athlete starts in supine (back flat on the floor) position with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Athlete keeps arms folded across their chest with hands grasping opposite shoulders. 
  • To perform a complete sit-up, an athlete must touch one of their elbows to the thighs or knees. A full sit-up is necessary for it to count. The score is the total number of full sit-ups you do in two minutes.  

6-Minute Walk

  • Measure the maximum distance for six minutes. You will measure out the distance of 30 meters, marking the beginning with a cone and end with a cone. The two cones represent the loop that will be followed to count the amount of laps obtained during the six minutes.  The amount of laps will be the amount submitted.
  • If you are in-between two cones when the timer stops you will measure the distance from the last cone to where you stopped.  For total distance you will take the laps completed X length of the course (30 meters) + Last Lap distance = the total to be submitted.
