NAME _________Patrick Bakley ______________________________ DATE ______________________ Assessing Flexibility: Trunk Flexion (Sit-and-Reach) Test and the Shoulder Flexibility Test The Sit-and-Reach Test To perform the sit-and-reach test, start by sitting upright with your feet flat against a sit-and-reach box. Keeping your feet flat on the box and your legs straight, extend your hands as far forward as possible, and hold this position for 3 seconds. Repeat this procedure 3 times. Your score on the sit-and-reach test is the distance, measured in inches, between the edge of the sit-and-reach box closest to you and the tips of your fingers during the best of your three stretching efforts. Note that you should warm up by stretching for a few minutes before you perform the test. To reduce the possibility of injury, avoid rapid or jerky movements during the test. It is often useful to have a partner help by holding your legs straight during the test and by measuring the distance. After completing the test, consult Table 5.3 on page 164 to locate your flexibility fitness category, and record your scores on the following page.
