Shoulder Flexibility Test

This is a general test used to assess shoulder flexibility. Good flexibility in the shoulder joints is essential for a wide range of activities, from everyday tasks to athletic performances. Fitness professionals and physiotherapists often use the shoulder flexibility test to assess the range of motion and flexibility of the shoulder muscles and joints.


How to test for shoulder flexibility

Firstly, place one hand behind your head, ensuring the palm faces outward and extends towards your mid-back, right between your shoulder blades.

Next, place your other hand behind your back, but with the palm facing upward, striving to reach the fingers of the opposite hand between your shoulder blades.

Measure the gap or overlap between your fingers, and compare on the other side.

This comparison will reveal any differences in flexibility between each side of your body.
