In fact, researchers from Harvard University say continuously doing more than 40 pushups on a regular basis slashes the risk of heart diseases by more than 96%.

"Our study provides proof that push-up capacity could be a no-cost and an easy method for helping to assess CVD risk in almost any type of setting".

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.

The scientists found that on a practical level, push-ups - which can be done from home, are more cost-efficient than a treadmill when it comes to developing better physical fitness habits that have been found to be a better indicator of heart disease risk.

The study involved 1,104 firefighters over 18 in IN with a mean age of 39.6 and mean body mass index (BMI) of 28.7 recruited to a retrospective longitudinal cohort study between 2000 and 2010.

'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.

Researchers also examined the firefighter's performance on a treadmill, overall physical health, and answers to health questionnaires. The longitudinal study followed a group of 1,104 firefighters and assessed their physical fitness over a period of 10 years. However, while all the outcomes occurred in men, only one occurred amongst those who completed 40 push-ups or less during the baseline examination.

He further added that participants who were able to perform 11 or more push-ups at baseline had significantly reduced risk of subsequent CVD events.

The authors noted that because the study population consisted of middle-aged, occupationally active men, the results may not be generalisable to women or men of other ages or who are less active.

What's interesting is that push-ups are now the best way to determine CVD cases.

"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.
