The shops remained closed, offices and warehouses were shut, the coach and chair stands
were deserted, no carts or waggons rumbled through the slowly waking streets, the early cries were all hushed; a universal gloom prevailed.
Heart disease risk factors were not linked to balance problems or the ability to do the chair stand
The Timed Up and Go (TUG), the 30 Second Chair Stand
test and the 4-Stage Balance test were used to measure mobility, muscle strength and falls risk (Jones, Rikli, & Beam, 1999; Podsiadlo & Richardson, 1991; Rossiter-Fornoff, Wolf, Wolfson, & Buchner, 1995).
Mobility tests included the chair stand
test (how fast a person can stand up and sit down on a chair five times), the timed up-and-go test (the time it takes a person to get up from a chair, walk three meters [10 feet], return to the chair and sit down again), and walking a four-meter (13-foot.

SFT comprises the following six components: (1) arm curl test (for upper body strength), (2) chair stand
test (for lower body strength), (3) back scratch test (for upper body flexibility), (4) chair sit and reach test (for lower body flexibility), (5) eight foot up and go test (for agility/dynamic balance), and (6) 2-min step test (for aerobic endurance).
Researchers selected lists of six functional fitness test from the Senior Fitness Test (5,7,8) as follows Chair Stand
, Arm Curl, Step in Place, Chair Sit-and-Reach, Back Scratch, and the 8 Foot Up and Go.
The test was then completed in this order: (1) Chair stand
up for 30 seconds was used to assess lower-body strength, (2) Arm curl was used to assess upper-body strength, (3) Back scratch was used to assess upper-body (shoulder) flexibility, (4) Chair-sit-and-reach was used to assess the flexibility of the lower extremities, (5) Eight-foot-up-and-go was used to assess agility/dynamic balance as an index of basic mobility skills, and (6) The 6-minute walk test was used to assess aerobic capacity.
Functional loss included gait speed and chair stand

time (p < 0.
Other tests that may be conducted to measure physical functioning, which are less commonly performed, are: Chair Stand
, Grip Strength, and Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) or Forced Expiratory Flow at 1 Second (FEV1) pulmonary function tests.
