The McCloy physical fitness test

The objective of this test is to monitor the development o 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 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.


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 athletes but not for individuals where the test would be contraindicated.


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


No published tables to relate results to potential performance in competition.
