    Author(s): AWS Chandana* and HACS Hapuarachchi

    This study was aimed at evaluating the performance level of strength, endurance, agility, balance, and coordination with biomechanical factors of youth in Sri Lanka. Most of the available test batteries were designed for particular groups of people, in relation to their anthropometric measurements, Geographic Variation, and socio-cultural factors. Therefore, the modified Burpee test (the 30s, with push-up and vertical jump) was introduced to the subject (n=383, male and n=327, female) to design a test battery. The percentile method was used to distinguish the performance levels. The average number of Burpees of males and females are 9 (SD=3.4) and 6 (SD=2.5), respectively. University students (68), whose, physical fitness levels (satisfactory level or above) were tested for four times through the Eurofit test, were selected to observe their performance levels unde..
