Testing Your Flexibility
Testing your flexibility is an important first step in planning your stretching program.This simple test not only show you what areas are too tight to allow normal range of motion, they can also indicate when a muscle is too loose and allows too much range of motion.
Too short and you will not have movement without compensation; too long and you will not have the necessary strength and stability in the joint.Every person has unique flexibility needs and potential. There’s no definitive marker for how much flexibility you should have for every test. Rather, use the following test as a gauge to locate problem areas and to measure your progress over time.
Record your test scores in your initial evaluation and again at regular intervals, such as every 4 or 8 weeks.Each test begins with a simple description, followed by starting position, the movement. Complete as many of the tests as possible, as flexibility is specific to each joint, and determining your flexibility in a few joints is not an indicator of flexibility in others.
