leg raise -> MaxD
leg raise -> maximum distanceEquipment needed: wall, short tape measure, something to mark the reach distance (f.ex. chalk)
Goal and measurementThe goal is to test the mobility of the hips. The result you record is the distance between the floor and the furthest point you can touch with your big toe.
PositionStand in front of the wall on one leg, one foot length (your foot) away from the wall with your hands on your hips. You cannot stand on your toes. The heel must touch the ground.
straight kneeRaise your straightened leg to the side and forward (if necessary) to reach as high as possible with the big toe of the foot.
bend kneeRaise your bent leg in the centerline of your body to reach as high as possible with the big toe of the foot.
Hold each position for 3 seconds and mark it. The distance between the floor and the point on the wall you have touched with your big toe is the result of the test. Perform the test exercise for each leg. You can do it with or without hip rotation and with or without bending the standing leg in the knee.
