I just got out of my Exercise and Program design and testing class. One of the topics tonight was the YMCA bench press test. Does any body think the weights a ridiculously low?
I think anybody that is apparently healthy would have no problem putting up 30 in a minute(which is what I was told ends the test after a minute or fatigue), even women that have never benched before or in a long time were putting up numbers well over 30 reps and for the guys only one guy in the class could only get 12.
Just asking if anybody finds this test effective for assessing muscular endurence?
