It showed men who did more than 40 push-ups were 96-percent less likely to develop heart failure or artery disease than those who did less than 10.

First author occupational medicine resident Dr Justin Yang at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston said: '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. This is the first known study to report an association between push-up capacity and subsequent cardiovascular disease outcomes.

In a study released on February 15, researchers from Harvard University set out to study the relationship between fitness and cardiovascular health. They also filled out health questionnaires and underwent physical exams.

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.

In fact, the push-up test was more accurate in predicting heart disease than a standard treadmill test.

"Based on the current study, CVD risk factor reduction should be recommended, including lifestyle measures for those with low push-up capacity, especially those capable of ten or fewer push-ups", they concluded.

Middle aged men who can do more push-ups may have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

"The use of these tools remains limited to particular occupations and targeted patient populations", it says. This is in comparison with men who can only complete less than 10 push-ups.

"Our retrospective cohort study provides further insights into the association of greater fitness, specifically muscular strength, with CVD-related outcomes in an occupationally active cohort across 10 years of follow-up".

"This study emphasizes the importance of physical fitness on health, and why clinicians should assess fitness during clinical encounters", said senior author Stefanos Kales, professor in the Department of Environmental Health at Harvard Chan School and chief of occupational medicine at Cambridge Health Alliance.

The authors note that the results may not be generalized for men or women who are less active or of other ages as the study included occupationally active and middle-aged men.
