FitnessGram Curl Up Test

Good strength and endurance of the abdominal muscles are important in promoting correct posture and pelvic alignment. The curl-up abdominal fitness test requires the subjects to perform as many curl-ups as possible following a set cadence. The following information describes the procedures as used in the FitnessGram Program (and also the Brockport Test?). There is also a similar Curl Up test as part of the Connecticut Physical Fitness Test and a beep curl up test used for the NHL testing. See the general guidelines for Abdominal Endurance Tests.
