Quick Reference

A test of agility, coordination, and balance sometimes used by gymnasts (figure 32).

▪ Using masking tape, make a hexagonal shape on a level, firm floor with each of the six sides measuring 65 centimetres (see figure). Stand at the centre of the hexagon facing side F. Jump with both feet over side A. Jump back to the centre and then jump over side B and so on round the hexagon, returning to the centre to face side F between each jump. Time how long it takes you to complete three circuits of the hexagon: 12 seconds or less is excellent; 13–17 seconds, good; 18–22 seconds, fair; more than 22 seconds, poor.
