  • Physical Test

    Ok.. I am in a bit of a dillema.

    I can do the sit ups, bench press, 1.5 mile run with ease.
    Only problem is the sit and reach portion.

    About 3 years ago (18 yrs old), I began to have a slight pain running down my left leg. It began to get worse as the years went on. When I was 20 years old, I went and saw a Neuro-surgeon, who set up an MRI appointment etc.

    Come to see, I had Sciatica, which means I had a nerve that was either rubbing or pinching in my lower back.

    21 years old, I had surgery, doctor said I would be 99% better after it.

    6 months later pass, my leg is better on a daily basis, but I cannot touch my toes, not even close.

    It is nothing but pain when I try to stretch.
    I'm 5'11'' - and can only reach middle of my shins.

    I have an appointment on October 7th to see the doc, but I dont wanna hear him tell me I'm going to need another surgery.
    I don't know what I am going to do when it comes to take the test.

    Now comes the time to start applying anywhere and everywhere I can, and I am already set back. I'm just depressed over this.

      Thank you for the reply. Will look into trying this when I flex a bit later today. My main issue is my sciatic nerve. I used to be able to touch my toes with ease, but once this issue arroused, thats when the problems started. It doesn't hurt to stretch, I know I can touch my toes, but the pain that is shooting down my leg stops me from going any farther because it hurts alot more.
