How Do You Measure Up? 3 Strength Exercises to Test Your Muscles-2

So you're a cardio junkie who can fit into skinny jeans, but do you have the muscle strength to tackle everyday physical jobs inside (and outside) your home? Find out with these quick strength tests, designed by Reebok Global Trainer, Sara Haley.

Physical Challenge #1: Rearrange Your (Heavy!) Living Room Furniture

Strength test: Do as many regular push-ups—knees off the ground—as you can without resting. Can't muster "boy" push-ups yet? Do them on your knees (or try the superman push up), and double the number in the key below to see how you rank.

How'd you do?
•12 OR MORE: You've got the girl guns to confidently move that couch.
•7 TO 11: Hit the gym a bit more before you rearrange the room.
•6 OR LESS: Time to call a burly friend to come help you.
