Agility Type Shuttle Tests
Shuttle run tests involve repetitive running back and forth, either over the same distance, or with changing distances. There are many shuttle type fitness tests, from short duration high-intensity tests measuring speed and agility, to longer and slower paced tests measuring aerobic fitness (and many in-between). Here is a list of the agility type shuttle tests, conducted over a short distance and short duration.
About Agility Shuttle Tests
Agility shuttle run tests require the participant to run back and forth between lines or markers, as quick as possible. Some tests use a set distance to shuttle between, others may use a ladder shuttle, in which the shuttle distance changes with each run. Two or more trails may be performed, and the quickest time is recorded.
