Bleep Test

bleeptestThe Bleep test is also known as the Shuttle run test or the Yo-Yo test. The test is a maximal running test performed on a flat 20 meter distance.

Instructions:
1. Mark a 20 meter distance. Use lines, tape og cones at each end.
2. Warm up for 5-10 minutes.
Bleep test3. Start the Bleep test software. At each bleep, you need to have at least one foot on line with the endpoints of the track.
4. If you are to fast you will have to wait at the line until the bleep.
5. An increase in speed is indicated with a double-bleep.
6. When you can no longer follow the pace (misses the bleep two consecutive times) stop the test and read your VO2max score (Fitness) in the calculator.

VO2max
ml/kg/min
10.9
Level:
Speed:
Time:
km/h
1 - 1
0.0
0:00
This calculator is also included in Fitness Test pro
Get it from App Store Get it from Google Play

Background:

As the test is based on a controlled gradual increase in speed, this running test is easier to follow for non-runners than most other running tests.

Note that this calculator uses a slightly different algorithm for calculating VO2max than the original article by Léger. We use the algorithm developed by professor Jens Bangsbo From University of Copenhagen. His version of the Bleep test is known as the Yo-yo test.

Reference:

I think what's going on here is all the kids are doing 10-15 meters. Still good job for your age! I'm training for the army and my first time I got a crap score of 4.6 ha! However this was set at 25 meters, the best way to get results I think is to set it that bit further then when you come to do the real test you have practiced more then needed :) it's been 2 weeks of training and I'm now up to 7.5. My point is stop the moaning and putting each other down, I think there are a lot of liers on this page. Hope the advice helped guys and keep trying hard!

ahhh thing is man you didn't get that...that's either a dirty lie or you're just mistaken. Top olympic distance runners get around 17...so you should be able to easily compete in olympic 5 k, probably win gold.

almost everyone that left a comment was wrong.
Sebastian Coe(olympic distance runner) did the bleep test with a score of 17. I run the mile in 4:37 and I got 14.6 so those who think they got in the high teens expect to run in the Olympics... hey you never know I could be wrong.

Im do sorry but that is not true, last year in year 8 ( I was 13) I did the bleep test and got 7.9, I could of done 3 more laps but I was too embarrassed. We did it correctly. So if u do it right the average for a 13 year old is 6-8, and 15 would be 9-13 roughly. Oh and did u know that u have to have a 6.5 to join the British police force? That means that it is impossible for a 12 year old to get al level 21
i dont even think there is a level 21. I thought it went up to 15. If u check online im shure there will b a video on YouTube explaining how to do the bleep test correctly.

The reason kids score so highly is that they do the test incorrectly. It is not a continuous run for starters. Anyone can do that. They must stop at the end of 20 metres pivot with at least one foot at the line and start again in the other direction. They must get to the line on the beep every time. If they are ahead they must wait for the beep then commence again. It is the stop start nature that eliminates runners and not how fast they run or far they get ahead. That is not considered the beep test. Once they do it correctly they drop like flies. The army is level 8. So are most police forces. My son who is 16 was boasting 12 and 16 scores with kids at school getting up to 20. When they did itcorrectly the average score was 4. Some kids to got 6 and one got an 8. 6 year olds getting to level 18? yeah thanks for that. The shuttle or beep test as it's known is about aerobic fitness not continuous running. If your kid did get a 16 it wasn't done properly and if it was I don't believe it because they are physically incapable. By the way level 18 is "continuous stop/start every 20 meters and pivot for 4,000 meters. Your kid ran 4 kilometres at 17kmh did they? That's level 18 on the beep test. An olympic athlete can't run that.

You start the test - every minute speed is increased. When you can no longer follow the pace, you can read your result (Aerobic fitness / VO2max) directly on the screen.

Adil - there is no need to calculate any levels. When a person stops just look at the result on the calculator (fitness = VO2max). That is much easier than noting the level and then looking up VO2max in a table.

Well, you don't need to know what level you are on. When you can no longer follow the pace, you can read your fitness level in the display.

Anyway - every minute the speed increases by 0.5 km/h, so minutes = levels.
