Another Chinese fitness challenge is sweeping across the net and it’s called the paper-thin waist test, or “A4 waist.”

The test is pretty self-explanatory: To test and see whether you are physically fit by paper size standards, hold up a 21 cm by 29.7 cm (8.2 inches by 11.7 inches) sheet of paper, the standard European size, to your waist.

A person is considered to be in good shape if they don’t have anything sticking out to the side of the standard A4 sheet of paper.
