LOL.

My dad lived to 94 (passed away last July 19th)...and it would take him 30 minutes and an infinite number of elbows and hands to get up off the floor (to which he would fall from time to time).

I think this test is bogus in most ways...but still offers us seniors something to work toward.;-)

I am 65 and overweight, but I got up with one hand. It was not pretty, but I did it. When I am feeling a little optimistic, I may try the cross-legged rising thing, but I have not done that one in years.

I hope we didn’t spend too much on this study. Is anyone surprised that people who cannot get up off the floor are in worse shape than those who can?

What next? People who cannot breathe are in worse shape than people who can?

Might as well give the money to PBS.
