A test of the muscular endurance of the abdominal muscles (figure 20).

▪ Lie on your back with the knees flexed at 90 degrees and your fingertips touching a strip of masking tape placed perpendicular to your body. Perform a slow, partial curl-up by flattening out your lower back, then curling up your upper spine until your fingertips touch a second strip of masking tape, 8 cm from the first strip. Return to the start position and repeat as many times as you can at a rate of 20 curl-ups per minute, up to a maximum of 75.
