Sit and Reach Test Results

A sit and reach flexibility test is commonly conducted as part of a fitness test battery. When comparing results, check what measurement procedure was used. Some protocols define the level of the feet to be the zero mark, others have that at 15 or 23 cm. The Presidents Challenge procedures require that the box is made with 23 centimeters at the level of the feet, so 10 cm past the toes is recorded as 33 cm. The Eurofit manual suggests having 15cm at the level of the feet. The scores using the feet as zero is used here.

Only a small sample of athlete results are available at this time. There is a normative table for the sit and reach test which can also be used to compare test results.
