Intermittent Endurance 20-10
I have just finished the beep test and after an ALPHA test I did on myself I decided to share it and await feedbacks.
How it’s done?
The test is done in a shuttle arrangement (30m) – see the picture.
Why it is done?The IE20-10 is designed with team sport athletes in mind. I have written about the importance of high-intensity running-based conditioning (HERE and HERE) and this test allows you to utilize the score to design and individualize the running based conditioning. You can find more about this process in the great article by Dan Baker HERE.
Why do we need the new test?
Since Martin is world known researcher I cannot argue with him on the statistics (he would destroy me 🙂 ), but I still somehow feel that there is a room for improvement in the test design. That’s why I developed IE20-10.
How did I calculate the beeps?
Well – manually and with some help of Excel. I started with average speed…
