Test Validity

Few results are available on the consistency and accuracy of the curl-up. Reliability is higher for college students than for children but the values are acceptable for this type of assessment. Determination of validity has been hampered by the lack of an established criterion measure. Anatomical analysis and electromyographical documentation provide the primary support for the use of the curl-up test to determine abdominal strength and endurance.
