Yo-Yo Test Apps
The Yo-Yo Intermittent Test is a fitness test designed to simulate the intermittent nature of certain sporting activities such as soccer and many other forms of football. It is like the beep test, except in the intermittent test the participants have a short active break of 10 seconds after each 2 shuttles. Listed below are two different apps that are able to run the yo-yo test.
Apps from Bitworks
The team from Bitworks has a beep test app that (like their Team Beep Test software for Windows) can also run the yo-yo tests (Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery (IRTL) Levels 1 & 2, and the Yo-Yo Intermittent Endurance (IETL) Levels 1 & 2. In actual fact you have the ability to conduct a number of different beep type tests and even design your own test.
Beep Test Solo
An enhancement on the Beep Test Free, the Beep Test Solo allows you to run any type of Multi-Stage Fitness Test (MSFT) for any sport. As well as the standard beep test and its variations, you are also able to conduct the Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery and Endurance tests, the UK Police & Fire 15m Test or use the powerful script feature to create your own beep test. You are also able to record and review your previous scores on a graph to track your fitness.
