Here is another variation of the yo-yo test, the Water Polo Intermittent Shuttle Test (WIST), designed to mimic the demands of the sport of water polo, based on the running Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test Level 1. Swimmers shuttle across 7.5m in the pool, with 10-second recovery after every 15m. The test may have the same timings as the yo-yo intermittent recovery test level 1, but the swimming distance is reduced to compensate for the slower swimming rate. This test is part of the suggested fitness testing for water polo players, and on our new list of swimming fitness tests.

The shuttles have to be completed in ever decreasing times until the player cannot finish the shuttle in the allocated time. See more on the FIT Interval Test.
