You're considered "healthy" if you can do how many push ups?

Forget expensive medical tests or anything like that. If you want to see whether or not you're going to have a heart attack . . . just drop and give me 40.

A new study out of Harvard found that the best sign of whether a man's heart is healthy or not is whether he can bang out at least 40 push-ups in a row

(And I guess if you have a heart attack DURING those 40 push-ups, then you'll REALLY know.)

If he can, his odds of a heart attack, stroke, or heart disease are 96% LOWER than average

The researchers say the test works because your ability to do push-ups is the best overall, quote, "marker of general physical fitness" . . . especially for men over 40.
