A revised push-up test for college students was presented in 2002. The purpose of this study was to develop percentile norms for the revised push-up test when it is used with college students. Revised push-up scores collected on 177 male and 274 female college students were used to develop percentile norms. The norms for the men have a different push-up test score for each percentile point presented. The norms for the women have the same score (0 and 1) for several different percentiles presented. The size of the male and female samples in this study is adequate to obtain representative norms. The percentile norms presented can be used with college-aged men and women. (Contains 2 tables.)
