For the men who had a higher fitness level and could complete more push ups, their outlook was a lot better.
The results showed that study participants who were able to perform 40 push-UPS, the risk of cardiovascular disease within 10 years was 96% less than those male who do less than 10 pushups. That is, there may be other factors tied to heart disease risk that are also related to how many pushups an individual can do. Then, the subjects of the study were followed for ten years to see if they had any cardiovascular events, like a coronary artery disease, cardiac arrest or heart failure.
'Participants able to perform 11 or more push-ups at baseline had significantly reduced risk of subsequent CVD events.
"Our findings provide evidence that push-up capacity could be an easy, no-cost method to help assess cardiovascular disease risk in nearly any setting", study lead author Justin Yang said in a statement, reported Forbes.
While there is growing evidence for objectively assessing cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) as a vital sign for health risk, it has been neglected by researchers.

'To our knowledge, no study has examined the association of push-up capacity, a simple, no-cost, surrogate measure of functional status, with future cardiovascular events.
American and Italian scientists conducted a study and found that the number of push-UPS that can carry men, it is possible to estimate the risk of cardiovascular disease.
The 1,104 firefighters included in the study ranged in age from 21-66 years (mean 39.6) and were all men. It states that middle-aged men who can do 40 push-ups at once are healthier than those who can do fewer than 10.
Investigators noted that their results may have limited generalizability to other groups such as women and that the analysis was not adjusted for multiple comparisons.
What's interesting is that push-ups are now the best way to determine CVD cases.
