Component and its Importance
The component I will be teaching is the sit and reach test. The Sit and Reach assesment tests each hamstrings flexibility seperatly. Maintaining adequate joint flexibility is important to functional health. However, for young people decreased flexibility is generally not a problem. The sit and reach test measures flexibility in the hamstrings, the bodie’s largest and most commonly injured muscle, which is why staying flexible in your hamstrings is very important throughout your life.
