Testing endurance in team sports has never been easy. There are multiple ways to do it, some of which are more or less sport- or training-specific, and some are more or less useful in prescribing training.
The shuttle run beep or bleep tests have been a staple in testing endurance in team sports, but since they didn’t implement corrections for CODs (changes of direction) and have used exact beeps from straight-line versions of the beep test (UMTT or VamEval), which resulted in lower MAS (maximum aerobic speed) scores, and that made them pretty much useless in prescribing the HIT (High-Intensity Training) conditioning.
This version of the shuttle run beep test implements corrections for the CODs, which makes it usable in prescribing both long-distance and shuttle-based HIT conditioning.
The MAS score reached in the COD-corrected shuttle run beep test can now be used in both long-distance and shuttle-based conditioning with our corrected beep test.
In addition to this product, you will get 6 compiled beep test versions and the R source code, so you can compile your own version if needed.
