How Can You Test Your Flexibility Streches in Exercise
Many adults have back problem because they do not have good flexibility. It is easy to test flexibility. A partner is needed to help in the test and some equipment is needed as a box and yardstick.
This test follows these steps:-
(i) First of all warm up muscles of leg and back for five minutes.
(ii) Sit on the floor with legs straight and feet flat against the box. The helping person will help to hold the yardstick on the top of the box.
(iii) Place one hand on the top of other. Slowly lean forward and reach as far as one can.
Hold position while helper marks the spot at the end of finger. Reaching nine inches or more is a sign of flexibility fitness for both boys and girls. Many machines have also been designed to test strength and flexibility of the body.
