For the first time ever, I need to make a change. This month will stay flexibility, but how I measure will be slightly different. This is because there are 2 different ways to do the sit and reach. Both methods use the traditional box but the difference comes in the measurements.
The first and more traditional starts at 9 inches at your feet and the platform that extends towards you counts down to 0.
The second starts at 0 at your feet and the platform that extends towards you counts to 9 in negative numbers and in positive numbers as it extends away from you.
As much as I would love to build one of these things myself, I will just personalize the test to myself. Like many people, I can’t touch my toes while standing or sitting. This is essentially the test just without the device.
