Background:
When performed under standardized conditions this test can be considered quite reliable, but note that results will be negatively correlated with body weight.

I am 14 years old in the 8th grade, I train alot while playing many different sports. I got the best score in this pushup test in my whole school (7th-12th grade) I got 75 pushups in a minute. I dont know about everyone else but at my school, if you do 45 pushups, you get 100%
