“Participants able to complete more than 40 push-ups had a 96% reduction in incident CVD events compared with those completing fewer than 10 push-ups…This longitudinal cohort study of 1104 occupationally active adult men found a significant negative association between baseline push-up capacity and incident cardiovascular disease risk across 10 years of follow-up. Participants able to complete more than 40 push-ups were associated with a significant reduction in incident cardiovascular disease event risk compared with those completing fewer than 10 push-ups…Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of mortality worldwide…Participants were stratified into 5 groups based on number of push-ups completed and were followed up for 10 years…adjusting for age and body mass index (BMI)…1104 with available push-up data were included in the final analyses…Participants able to complete more than 40 push-ups were associated with a significantly lower risk of incident CVD event risk compared with those completing fewer than 10 push-ups (IRR, 0.04; 95% CI, 0.01-0.36)…push-up capacity was found to be significantly inversely associated with most of the baseline risk factor variables that we examined…” (JAMA Netw Open. 2019;2)
