The simple exercise of sitting down and standing up again without holding onto anything, could suggest how long you have to live – that’s according to a group of physicians.

The group came up with the ‘sitting-rising test’ to measure their patients’ flexibility and strength.

They developed a scoring system for the test and found that people who scored three points or less out of 10, were more than five times as likely to die within six years, as those who scored more than eight points.
