When was the last time you tested your strength and flexibility? Hopefully it was within the past few months. Assessments should form the backbone of your program helping to gauge which exercises and routines are effective and which aren’t. Without regular and consistent assessment, it’s nearly impossible to track improvements.
To ensure you’re seeing improvements, implement the following flexibility and strength training assessments into your routine every four to six weeks. Document your results and compare them against previous trials. If you perform poorly on one specific test, focus the next month of your program on improving that aspect whether it’s upper body flexibility, lower body strength, or a mixture of the two.
