It’s all about technique. To obtain consistent results, you should perform the test with your back straight and with no bending of the hips or knees. You should start with your arms straight in the ready position. When FitQuest tells you to start the test, lower your body as far as possible without touching the floor.
The results are based on several parameters, including how many press ups you can perform in 15 seconds and the effort made (work done) to make the press ups based on your weight, applied force and speed.
We also measure how long it takes you to make each complete press up. We then can see how much you slow down over the test period, so we can then calculate your fatigue rate.
