Q15: Write a detail note on Harvard Step Test.

Answer: Harvard Step Test was developed by Brouha in 1943. It measures the cardiovascular fitness or Aerobic fitness by checking the recovery pulse rate. In this test an athlete stands in front of a box or bench which is 16 inches (female) to 20 inches (male) in height and steps up and down for 5 minutes at a rate of 30 steps/ minute. The pulse rate is counted 1- 1 1⁄2 minutes, 2- 2 1⁄2 minutes and 3 – 3 1⁄2 minutes immediately after the test is administrated.
The fitness Index score is calculated by a simple formula:

100 ✕ test duration in seconds
2 ✕ (sum of the heart beats taken in the recovery period)
