There’s a pretty simple test to tell if you’re likely to die in the near future.
While I don’t think it’s a perfect correlation… it is telling.
All you have to do is see if you can sit down on the floor without using your hands and then get up off the floor without using your hands.
If you can do that in a balanced way you get a perfect score of 10.
But even if your test score is 8 you’re doing just fine. And that would entail using one hand to help you go down and one hand to help you get up.
See this video below to see how it’s done and how to score yourself.
Sit – Stand Test
In a study published in the European Journal of Cardiology, Araujo had more than 2,000 patients ages 51 to 80, all part of an exercise program at Clinimex Exercise Medicine Clinic in Rio de Janeiro, take the SRT. People who scored fewer than eight points on the test, he found, were twice as likely to die within the next six years compared with those who scored higher; those who scored three or fewer points were more than five times as likely to die within the same period compared with those who scored more than eight points.
The Sit-Stand Test will test your leg and core strength, flexibility, coordination and balance.
I was able to get a score of 10 although it looks like my flexibility can use some improving. I was not able to go up crossed legged like some of the people in this video but I had another way I could do it as I’ve seen people do in other videos. I’ve never been good at sitting India style even as a child.
I was surprised to see how easily Andrew, Rainbow and Karmyn could get perfect scores on the test too.
Now the good news is that you can improve your test score via doing the proper exercises.
And from what I’ve seen of most seniors, most of them will not be able to pass this test. They’re just way to sedentary and usually overweight.
If you don’t use it, you lose it.
If you want to stay young and active as you age then exercise is, how can I say this???
The great news is that I know of two exercises that will dramatically improve your ability to pass the this test with flying colors.
I’m talking the Lightning Speed Exercise (LSE) which is great for your legs and knees. It will easily give you the leg strength you need to pass this test. And don’t worry there are easy versions of this exercise to get you started.
You can find the LSE in the Lightning Speed Fitness Program:
Then the other crucial exercise is Two Second Abs.
The Sit-Stand Test is largely a measure of core strength. If you have a strong core it’s just much easier to do. Plus having strong core will dramatically increase your ability to keep your balance which is also a major factor in this test. By the way… you lose half a point every time you go off balance during the test.
And 2 Second Abs will give you a rock solid core and abs in 14 days and just 30 seconds a day.
There simply isn’t an easier or more convenient ab and core workout anywhere.
If you want to get your furry left foot out of the grave then I it’s high time to get started with “Two Second Abs.”
You do have a spare couple of seconds don’t you?
Why not give the fastest and most convenient ab and core workout on the planet a shot while you can still get it for pennies on the dollar.
