Recent research shows muscle strength is one of the most important measures when assessing cardiometabolic health. There is difficulty in measuring musculoskeletal strength as part of a fitness assessment because many traditional measures are technique-dependent and penalise individuals based on body size or length. Therefore, it is less reliable and more difficult to interpret. For this reason, handgrip strength is the preferred measure used in research studies. We also know that handgrip strength correlates very well with overall body strength.
