How flexible are you?

The ability to move joints freely and without pain through a wide range of motion is an important component of physical fitness. Flexibility benefits all physical activities and helps prevent pain and stiffness after exercise. Busy working or raising our families, most of us don’t take the time to exercise and stretch regularly. Take this opportunity to assess your joint health.

The Test
  1. Place a yardstick on the floor with the zero mark closest to you. Tape the yardstick to the floor at the 15-inch mark. Have a friend help keep your legs straight during the test but not interfere with your movements.

  2. Sit on the floor with the yardstick between your extended legs, feet about 10 inches apart and heels at the 15-inch mark.

  3. Place one hand over the other with one middle finger on top of the other.

  4. Slowly stretch forward without jerking or bouncing, and slide your fingertips along the yardstick as far as possible.

  5. Place a marker at the spot where your fingers touch the floor .

  6. Do the test three times. Your score is the highest number you reach, to the nearest inch.
