Multistage Fitness Tests

The Multistage Fitness Test is arguably the most recognisable maximal aerobic capacity test available. Widely utilised by the uniform services as an indicator of ‘fit-for-task’, with corresponding benchmarks based upon gender and age. The test is administered over a 20 metre runway with marker cones at either side; the CD provides audio instructions and constant guidance regarding which level in the progression participants are on and a regular ‘beep’ to denote the point at which you need to arrive at the line and turn.¬†Used as a ‘field testing’ benchmark for multi-directional sports; they are eight mins in duration at level 7, 11 or 15 respectively. A useful metabolic conditioning tool, particularly for football athletes. The instruction manual included with the CD, provides a breakdown of predicted Max VO2 based upon the level and shuttle number the participant dropped out at.¬†Simple to administer, yet effective at providing valid data for predicted maximal oxygen uptake via a progressive running test.
