Yo-Yo Intermittent Endurance Test Levels

The Yo-Yo Intermittent Endurance Test is a test of the ability to undertake intermittent exercise - there are two variations, this the endurance version and the recovery version. The participants in this test have a short active break of 5 seconds (2.5 meters) after each 40m (2 x 20 m runs) of increasing speed (see a full description of the Yo-Yo Intermittent Test procedure).

The Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test has different speeds and a longer recovery (10 seconds) between 40m shuttles. The Yo-Yo test recording can be performed using the Team BeepTest software.
