Flexibility Test

Using a flexibility test enables you to measure range of hip and trunk movement. Flexibility testing is used by gyms sometimes in your induction to get an overall picture of the state of your body.

Flexibility tests also include reach or flexion tests and are a a great idea if you are regularly participating in physical activity. Be sure when you use a flexibility test that you use them for all areas of the body like hip and trunk and not just the hamstrings.

Flexion Tests

By performing flexion tests you will be able to gauge how well you are able to move the hip joint through a large range of motion. Any runner, sprinter, long or high jumper or athlete who requires quick bursts of energy should be doing flexion tests on a regular basis.
