Sit and Reach Testing Procedure:

Advise the subject to limber up gently and loosen the limbs by mild stretching exercise for a minute or two. The subject is to sit on the floor and place both feet (without shoes) against the vertical surface of the `sit and reach' board.

With knees and elbows locked, the subject places one hand on the other, palms down, fingers out stretched with fingers overlapping. The subject with knees straight, slowly and smoothly flexes the trunk and hips and stretches forward as far as possible, sliding both the hands along the scale down the board as far as is comfortable without undue pain or exertion. Ensure one hand does not lead.

Jerking and bobbing forward is not permitted; it must be an even movement, and the extreme reach position must be held for two to three seconds, then relax. Record the distance reached. The best score of three trials is recorded with a short rest being allowed between trials.
