Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate relationships between a physical fitness assessment measures and a task-specific physical assessment.Design: A retrospective cohort study.Method: Data for 208 male (age: 26.60±5.66yrs; height: 179.22±10.49cm; body mass 83.97±14.02kg) and 99 female (age: 26.87±6.62yrs; height: 168.13±6.46cm; body mass 65.42±8.60kg) police trainees whocompleted the Physical Appraisal Test (PAT) and the task-specific Physical Competency Test (PCT) were provided. The PAT comprised a 2.4km run, vertical jump, 60s push-ups, and grip strength measures. The PCT consisted of ten occupational-specific tasks completed as a 400m obstacle course.Results: All PAT measures were significantly correlated to PCT performance with the strength of the correlations ranging from strong (2.4km run time; r =.639, p<0.01) to moderate (vertical jump height; r = - .420, p<0.01). The highest predictive relationship was seen with the 2.4km run (r2 = .409), and the lowestwith standing vertical jump (r2 = .177).Conclusion: Aerobic endurance, lower-body muscle power, grip strength and upper-body muscle endurance are measures associated with, and predictive of, PCT performance; an assessment designed to mimic police task requirements.
