  • At the gym: Bench Press, Seated Chest Press Machine, Seated Pec Deck Machine, and Chest Flys on Cable Cross Machine
  • How to know its working: When you're done testing, you can track your results on SparkPeople to keep track of your progress! Over time, you should be able to do more push ups in subsequent assessments. Try to retest yourself every 4-8 weeks.

    This test is a great tool to see how you are doing. If you don’t score as well as you like, just remember to focus on improving your own scores periodically. As long as you are improving, your fitness plan is working. If you find you aren’t making the progress that you feel you should be seeing, it may be time to change your workout routine.
