EXERCISE CAPACITY INDEX
The Exercise Capacity indicates the general efficiency of the body in movement from the point of view of all motor abilities but excludes the physical characteristics of the individual (e.g. BMI and upper am skinfold measures are not included). It is calculated as the average score of all measures that determine physical performance, i.e. eight movement measurement tasks. It is expressed on a scale of 0 (worst) to 100 (best), as a centile value; so for example, a ECI of 25 would mean that for this person, 25% of their peers have worse (and 75% of their peers have better) physical performance than they do.
PHYSICAL FITNESS INDEX
Physical fitness index is an indicator of our overall performance. It is calculated from the percentile values of all 8 fitness tests, BMI and triceps skinfold thickness. Low values of this indicator are a proof of insufficient physical efficiency.
