Health Components Evaluated in Test:
Flexibility (Lower Back and Hamstrings)
The first student is a fourteen year old female. After evaluating this students test, it is apparent that the student is not exactly physically fit, but definitely not overweight. The one-mile walk/run, proves that the student has had little or no exposure to cardiovascular/aerobic workouts. The sum of her skin fold test however, proves she is quite lean for her age. Her flexibility was good according to her sit and reach test scores, and the pull up test showed that she meets the standard for her age.

The second student is a fourteen year old male. His one-mile walk/run shows that he is not in great physical condition. His skin fold test further explains his cardiovascular disappointment, as he is definitely overweight with a skin fold of 30. His flexibility is probably another factor of his weight. His sit and reach test was 20 cm, which definitely under the national standard. His sit up test was right on the nose with the standards, which proves this is probably an abdominal strong young man, but just the opposite in arm strength, not even reaching one pull up. Also, this may be a factor of his weight.
