    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The sitting rising test! YOU GONNA DIE!

    I guess certain disabled people, people with a knee injury, or people with inner ear damage are way more likely to die even if they lead an incredibly healthy lifestyle, because they cannot do this, lol. Pretty ableist, to be honest.I mean, me, I have permanent knee damage.

    I can take my shoes off or put them on while standing upright on one foot, I can kick over my head, but thanks to bursitis and a torn ACL from martial arts training, to safely get up off the floor I need to brace myself.

    Meesa gonna DIEEEE!



    What do you think? Is this an indicator of "health?"

    Of course it's an indicator of health. It's a benchmark, and not a bad one. Is it a complete assessment? **** no, and nobody said it was. Is it perfectly predictive even for special cases? No, and nobody said it was. It's a test, one of many, and it's useful.

    "to safely get up off the floor I need to brace myself." --> so, what's your score? This could be anywhere from a 3 to an 8 or even 9.

    But you're so close to the floor to begin with that I don't think it counts.

    This is the only way I ever stand up, unless it's a technical standup.

    People use things other than than legs?

    I guess I am doing OK.

    I do think it is an indicator but its by no means a fool proof one.
    Like many indicators it just means you have to look deeper.

    It's an indicator of strong feet and balance, two important factors in standing the **** up.

    More importantly, how can "internal" training improve one's performance in this demonstration...
