This June, we bring you the Sit and Reach Challenge.

This challenge, presented by fitness professional Leon Wormley, together with his Mum Janet, is designed to help improve the flexibility of your lower back and hamstrings, reducing tightness and stiffness. Over time this can help with tasks like picking things off the floor or putting socks on.

Leon and Janet demonstrate different ways to perform the challenge, including seated and floor-based versions. They will also take you through additional exercises you can do to improve the range of movement in the lower back.

All our challenges are designed especially for those living with arthritis and joint pain.

    Do give it a go. I have been doing similar for sometime and it does help. Doesn't get ride of the arthritis but it helps strengthen the muscles which support the spine. Good luck with it.
