# Re: (TFT) ST/Weight Table (long)

```Strength
```
The following is TFT ST with some real world physical fitness equivalents. We have had some fun with these numbers. People coming over to the house to be "tested", actually doing the pull ups and such. The numbers were averaged from ?AAHPERD Youth Fitness Test Manual, revised 1975 edition.? test results. Specifically the college age group results were used. By doing the tests listed below one could find out their own TFT ST. All of my friends and I got an 11 ST. Only one friend got a 12.
```
```
Standing Jump: measured in meters. Results are listed in Male/Female scores. A standing jump is measured from in front of the toes to the back most part to land, or the heel marks of impact which ever is shorter.
```
```
Pull Up: It only counts if done overhand, without swinging, and goes all the way back to full extension before starting the next one. For females the arm hang must be done with the chin over the bar, looking ahead, and is measured in seconds held. The counting stops when the person either starts to tilt their head or touches the bar with their chin.
```
```
Percent: This is the percentage of the population of American college students who took the test that have less ST than shown.
```
```
Option: A sprint number is the number of 1.88m hexes (sorry, I don?t use the 1.333m Hex so a figure fits in one Hex when prone) a character may move per MA if the figure moved full MA that turn. If the sprinter turns facing or direction by just one Hex then they loose the sprint multiplier for the rest of that move. A sprinter may not turn by more than one Hex until the next turn. The multiplier assumes a very smooth running surface. The multiplier is ?1 for grassy fields, -2 for woods, and ?3 for broken terrain (which also requires a 3D roll per Hex anyway).

The implication of this table is that there are different kinds of strength. Not only differences in male and female strength for the average person. I would have these numbers be only true for Man. Creatures and monsters like Dragons, elementals, horses, and cats would have different kinds of strength. The following table assumes humanoids once again. The dead lift is the maximum weight the character can lift. They can only do this briefly. That and the weight can not be lifted higher than their center of gravity.

The following Table is for adolescent children. It is listed by Age not ST. Strength is the second column. It has the standing jump, pull up, and sit up. One table for each sex. One of the conclusions of the study was that Females are not encouraged by society to excel physically. Hence the drop of in some abilities. Now that female sports are encouraged I imagine these numbers would continue to climb.
