Sitting Rising Test – DON’T DO IT! VERY DANGEROUS.

This is the test. But in order to try for a 10 I was aggressive and in my first attempt fell back on my head while getting up. The head hurt. Luckily I fell on the carpet else I could have injured myself badly. Later, by using a hand, I could get up easily but the test is fundamentally bad.

DOING THE TEST IS VERY DANGEROUS AND THE STUDY HAS NOT BEEN REPLICATED AND DID NOT CONTROL FOR A RANGE OF OTHER KEY VARIABLES. [Summary from here – “I also believe that performing the test may do more harm than good.]

My conclusion: The harms of doing this test FAR EXCEED any predictive benefits it might bring.

Just do regular exercise and stretching. SLOWLY. And that’s fine.
