The McCloy Physical Fitness Test

The McCloy Physical Fitness Test
The McCloy Physical Fitness Test. The objective of this test is to monitor the development of the athlete's fitness.

Required resources
To undertake this test you will require:
  • Gym with mats and a bar on which to do pull ups
  • Stop watch
  • Assistant.
How to conduct the test
The athlete undertakes a series of exercises with the assistant recording the number of repetitions completed for each exercise.
A three minute recovery is allowed between each exercise.
The test comprises of the following exercises:
  • Chins (pull ups) to maximum
  • Press ups to maximum
  • Squat thrusts for 1 minute
  • Squat jumps for 1 minute
  • Sit ups for 2 minutes.
Analysis
The Physical Fitness Index (P.F.I.) is calculated by adding together the repetitions completed for each exercise and then dividing the total by five.

Analysis of the result is by comparing it with the results of previous tests. It is expected that, with appropriate training between each test, the analysis would indicate an improvement.

Target group
This test is suitable for active individuals but not for those where the test would be contraindicated.

Reliability
Reliability would depend upon how strict the test is conducted and the individual's level of motivation to perform the test.

Validity
There are no published tables to relate results to potential performance in competition.
