Buying the Yo-Yo Test

There are several variations of the yo-yo test: see Yo-Yo endurance test and a Yo-Yo Intermittent Test. In addition, there are two versions of each test, Level 1 & 2. The endurance test is like the beep test. In the intermittent tests (endurance and recovery versions), participants have a short active recovery break after each 40m run.

Where to Buy

I have yet to find a good source of buying the yo-yo test, although judging by the questions I get about it, there is a lot of interest. If you Google for 'yo-yo test' you may be lucky to find something.

If you have an iphone or ipad, you can download a Yo-Yo Test App.

The YoYo Intermittent Recovery and Endurance Levels 1 and 2 can be performed using the Team BeepTest software. The Yo-Yo test script is now included as standard with the latest version of the Team BeepTest software. This software also enables you to modify the parameters of Start, Run, Rest and Repeat, so any beep type test can be created.
