Water Polo Intermittent Shuttle Test (WIST)

This Water Polo Intermittent Shuttle Test (WIST) is a water polo specific fitness test, created by IƱigo Mujika, to assess a player's ability to perform repeated high-intensity efforts interspersed with brief periods of active recovery. The test is designed to mimic the demands of the sport of water polo, and is based on the running Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test Level 1. Mujika et al. (2006) showed the test to be a reliable, sensitive and valid match-fitness test for water polo players. See also the 10 meter Multistage Shuttle Swim Test designed for water polo players.
