Sit-And-Reach Test - This test does not viaxin really tell us anything. If you review the classic text Muscles: Testing & Function by Kendall, McCreary and Provance (1993), you'll notice that many different strategies are used when one tries to touch their toes - some accomplish the task with flexible backs, others with flexible hamstrings, not to mention limb-length discrepancies that exist among individuals, and so on. Furthermore, there is a low correlation between static and dynamic flexibility. And flexibility is joint specific - we are not testing overall flexibility, and we're not solely testing hip flexibility since the back and other variables come in to play, so what are we truly measuring during the sit-and-reach test?
