Introduction

Multi Stage Fitness Test Result: 11.7 / 23.0 Purpose: To assess the level of cardio-respiratory fitness. The bleep test is what I chose for my pre-test, as it's a maximal test, which means it tests your fitness to the limit.

The bleep test works by you having to run a distance of 20 m and keeping in time with the bleeps. ...read more.

Middle

David Beckham and Lance Armstrong are only a handful of athletes who can complete the test. I did the test because the bleep test is used to estimate your VO2 max. (Maximum oxygen intake).

One variable that could have also affected my performance was that I was running without any one by me so I didn't have any one to compete with as such, this in my opinion would have probably spurred me on a extra level maybe to 12.0. Food Intake running up to the test Breakfast- porridge & orange juice Morning snack- Chocolate cookie Lunch- half a bottle of water I kept my food intake to a minimum as top nutritionists advise it. > It's advised you shouldn't eat from 2 hours before the test > You shouldn't consume alcohol or cigarettes before test. ...read more.
