Fitness Test – SAI Khelo India Fitness Test in school (SAI – Sports Authority of India)

Sports and fitness have a huge impact on a person’s life. Sporting activities foster teamwork, analytical and strategic thinking, leadership qualities, goal-setting, and risk-taking. A fit and healthy person contributes to a healthy community and a powerful country.

Fitness Test

All of the motor fitness components—agility, coordination, balance, speed, and response time—are measured while a person’s motor fitness is being tested. The motor fitness test gives the student a score indicating their level of fitness, the success of their current training regimen, and their current situation, inspiring them to work harder and achieve more.

50mt Speed test

The starting line and finishing line are two straight lines that are separated by a distance of 50 metres.
To successfully complete the process, at least two officials are needed. One stands behind the standing line to give the commands “On your mark” and “Go” along with a downward sweep of the arm, providing a visual cue to the other official who stands perpendicular to the finishing line to time the process.
In order to run as quickly as possible and post the best time, the student will start from a standing position.

600mt Run/Walk

Before the run/walk begins, the student should be told of the distance. A visual indication and the instructions “On your mark” and “Go” will be given by one official to the other. The student will travel the distance as quickly as feasible by running or walking. The test may be administered in a group, but there must be an equal number of officials and participants.

Sit & Reach flexibility test

The student should sit with her or his feet on the sit-and-reach box and without shoes. The test subject’s knees should be locked and pressed flat to the ground (the tester can help by holding the knees down).
Without extending, the student should extend both arms forward, palms facing forward.

The student should slowly stretch forward as soon as the official gives the signal to begin the test, stretching as far as they can with both hands without jerking, and holding that position for two seconds. Keep your hands level at all times.

Abdominal Partial Curl Up

Student should lie on mat in supine posture with knee bent at a 90-degree angle. Hands should be held straight out in front of the body, parallel to the body, and feet should be spaced apart. The student will curl up at least six inches above the mat’s surface or six inches toward the parallel strip by pulling up with their upper bodies.
Movement must be smooth and the upper body must descend gradually. One curl-up will be considered to be the full cycle of rising up and descending.

Push Ups (Boys) and Modified Push Ups (Girls)

Male students will lie face down with their hands slightly apart from their shoulders. The neck, back, and knees should be rigidly straight. The pupil will be positioned so that their palms and toes are touching the ground.
For female pupils, the position will be the same, with the exception that their knees must be on the ground.
The student will return to the starting position after bending their elbows to a 90° angle at the elbow joint. Both positions require a straight back. Keep in mind that your stomach should not contact the ground while you are beginning out.

Computing Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)

The amount of calories burned while your body carries out its fundamental (basic) life-sustaining functions is known as your basal metabolic rate (BMR). Also known as Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR), this phrase refers to the number of calories you would burn if you spent the entire day in bed. In either case, many people determine their body’s metabolism rate using the basal metabolic rate formula.

The basal metabolic rate formula below can be used to calculate your basal metabolism rate:

Men: BMR = 88.362 + (13.397 x weight in kg) + (4.799 x height in cm) – (5.677 x age in years)
Women: BMR = 447.593 + (9.247 x weight in kg) + (3.098 x height in cm) – (4.330 x age in years)

Rikli & Jones – Senior Citizen Fitness Test

The Rikli and Jones Senior Citizen Fitness Test for evaluating the functional fitness of older persons describes simple, efficient tests to determine strength, flexibility, and aerobic fitness using the least amount of expensive equipment. Common tasks like standing up from a chair, walking, lifting, bending, and stretching are included in the Individual Fitness Test elements.

The examinations were created to be fun and safe for senior citizens while still being reliable and genuine according to scientific standards. Tests include –

  • Chair Stand Test for lower body strength
  • Arm Curl Test for upper body strength
