The Yo Yo Test CD is easy to perform, which will determine the fitness level of athletes and individuals. All you need is the CD, something to play it on and a marked-out area 20 metres in distance.
This is a popular test often used by some of the best football and soccer teams from around the world.
How to perform the Yo Yo Test
- Place two markers positioned 20 metres apart and a third another 5 metres apart. This can be in a sports hall, grassed area, or a hockey pitch or Astroturf.
- Start the Yo-Yo Test CD and begin to run between the markers. The pace is then controlled by the beeps, and the person taking the test runs like a yo-yo between the two set markers.
- The speed increases until the individual can no longer keep up with the pace set by the beeps. The test ends once the participant can no longer keep up with the beeps.
- The total distance covered during the test allows you to find out the fitness level achieved
The CD has 3 tests. Each test has two levels that anyone can use, irrespective of training status or fitness. We recommend that Level 1 should be for those who perhaps don’t train that often. Or have possibly had some time of inactivity. Level 2 is for regular exercisers and well-trained athletes. Each of the tests focuses on different aspects of physical performance and fitness. If you are looking for an alternative to the Yo Yo Test take a look at the 15 m bleep test.
