Journal of Athletic Training, v34 n1 p43-47 Jan-Mar 1999
Describes several modifications of the standard sit-and-reach flexibility protocol using a new device called the multitest flexometer (MTF). Using the MTF, researchers could take six flexibility measures beyond the stand-and-reach test. The modified protocol allowed the indirect assessment of the influence of the four major muscle groups that affect sit-and-reach scores. (SM)
