Skating Multistage Aerobic Test (SMAT)

A beep test on ice for hockey players

This is a modified version of the standard 20m beep test adapted for the specific requirements of ice hockey players, created by Leone et al. (2006). The test differs from the standard beep test in that it is conducted on ice and uses a 2:1 work to rest ratio. For more information on the beep test and its variations, see the complete guide to the bleep / beep test. Read more about fitness testing for hockey.
