Objectives 1. To measure hamstring and back flexibility using a standard sit and reach test and determine if the measures fall within accepted normative ranges. 2. To measure hip joint range of motion and back flexibility through the use of an electrogoniometer DURING the sit and reach test. 3. To measure hip joint range of motion and hamstring flexibility, performing a supine straight leg raise test, using an electrogoniometerand compare to normative values. 4. Have a lab partner perform visual comparisons of the range of motion of the hip joint during each of the activities and record the observations. 5.
