PURPOSE: Many tests to assess specific muscle group endurance are currently available. However; there is not yet one test that assesses overall muscular endurance. The purpose of this study was to determine if a 90-second dumbbell swing test correlated to a well-known test of muscular endurance. METHODS: The participants were 47 male and female college students (age: 20 ± 2.10 yrs, height: 66.44 ± 3.74 in, weight: 149.93 ± 30.81 lbs, BMI: 23.76 ± 3.34, gender: (f 66.7% m 33.3%). The one-minute pushups and 90-second dumbbell swing tests were conducted on the same day. The amount of weight used for the dumbbell swings was 11.4 kg for females, and 15.9 kg for males. Each repetition of the dumbbell swing consisted of the dumbbell taken from the level of the knees, swing outward up to shoulder height and returned. This activity was conducted for 90 seconds with the number of completed repetitions recorded. RESULTS: A Pearson's bivariate correlation was used to compare the results of the one-minute pushup test against the 90-second dumbbell swing test. The analysis yielded a statistically significant correlation between the two exercise assessments (r = .307, p = 0.018). CONCLUSIONS: The data suggest that one-minute pushups and 90-second dumbbell swing test are correlated. Though the tests are assessing different muscle groups, based upon these data it is plausible that the 90-second dumbbell swing assessment is a test of muscular endurance. PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS: This information could be useful to anyone performing a physical fitness assessment, or who needs an alternative test for the one-minute pushup test. The 90-second dumbbell swing test is relatively easy to perform, and addresses more muscle groups simultaneously than the one minute push-up test.
