Sit and Reach Test

The sit and reach test is a common measure of flexibility, and specifically measures the flexibility of the lower back and hamstring muscles. This test is now widely used as a general test of flexibility.

There are a few variations of the test. Many of the variations of this test involve the differences in the value of the level of the feet. The most logical measure is to use the level of the feet as recording zero, so that any measure that does not reach the toes is negative and any reach past the toes is positive.
