Pull Up Test


The aim of the pullups test is to assess the muscular endurance of the arms and shoulder muscles


A horizontal pull-up bar set at a height so that the participant’s feet do no touch the ground when they hang with their arms extended


  1. The participant hangs from the bar with their arms fully extended, with their palms facing away from their body
  2. The participant then pulls their body up with their arms until their chin is just above the bar
  3. The participant then lowers their body to the original starting position
  4. This process is repeated as many times as possible with the number of successfully completed pull-ups counted
