Apparently, a new standard in health is the ability to do 40 push ups! Huh?
There may be some truth to this. A study out of Harvard found that the best sign of whether a man’s heart is healthy or not is whether you can bang out at least 40 push-ups in a row.
If you can, your odds of a heart attack, stroke, or heart disease are 96% LOWER than average.
So, forget expensive medical tests or anything like that. If you want to see whether or not you’re going to have a heart attack . . . just drop and give me 40.
I guess if you have a heart attack DURING those 40 push-ups, then you’ll REALLY know!
Researchers say the test works because your ability to do push-ups is the best overall, quote, “marker of general physical fitness” . . . especially for men over 40.
So, fellas..give it a shot! Can you do 40?
