We have been using the bleep test for the last two years! This is a easy way to test a high school physical education class. We divide our classes into groups of 35 or more. We can test students of all levels of cardio fitness at the same time. We test once a week and record the scores. We can post the scores so students can see their progress. I liked I like that we can utilize our gymnasiums sound system to administer the test! I think it would be awesome to compare our scores to other high schools throughout the country.
This app does not time to the 20M Euro 21 stage standard used for athletic benchmarking. Compared to the standard, completing level 10 on this app is 90 shuttles, or 4 shuttles short (drops a segment on levels 4,6,8, and 9) and about 30 seconds shorter than the actual standard, which is widely published and should complete level 10 with 94 shuttles and a time of 10:32. This is 80M shorter and 30 seconds shorter than standard at level 10 and it gets worse with more dropped segments. This makes this app a “cheater” app, so that very good athletes can show a score output higher than the standard test. Example a 11.2 on this app would be very close to a 10.9 on the actual 20 min beep test standard. Find an app that publishes the data tables or just run your preferred app to ensure stage 10 completes at 94 shuttles and 10:32 to know it is using the true standard parameters.
The multi-stage fitness test, also known as the bleep test, beep test, pacer test, Leger-test or 20-m shuttle run test, is a series of stages that have different tasks sometimes used by sports coaches and trainers to estimate an athlete's VO2 max (maximum oxygen uptake).The pacer test is "progressive aerobic cardiovascular endurance test". The test is especially useful for players of sports such as rugby, football, Australian rules football, Gaelic football, hurling, hockey, netball, handball, tennis, squash, and fitness testing in schools and colleges plus many other sports; employed by many international sporting teams as an accurate test of cardiovascular fitness, one of the more important components of Fitness. The test was created in 1982 by Luc Leger, University of Montreal and published in 1983 with a starting speed of 8 km/h and stages of 2 min duration. The test was re-published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology in 1988 in its present form with a starting speed of 8.5 km/h and 1 min stages under the name "The multistage 20 metre shuttle run test for aerobic fitness". Result equivalences between slightly modified versions are well explained by Tomkinson et al. in 2003.
It works like this when you start the test you need a track like a line at one side of something and then a line at the other side you stand at one of the lines and when it beeps you run to the other line and stop when it beeps again you run to the other line and just keep repeating the same thing over and over until you feel like you want to stop.I hope this helped you!.
Beep test is a fitness activity. It's used by coaches of highly cardiovascular / aerobic sports like soccer and rugby. Athletes run back and forth usually 20 meters crossing the lines without consecutive misses. When there are two consecutive misses, the athlete is done and scored based on that level.
App seems to be crashing a lot lately. I've had to delete and reinstall about every other time I attempt to use the app. Currently looking for an alternative but hope the developer gets it figured it out. When it worked smoothly the app did the trick.
If and when you can get this app to work, it doesn't work properly. I've been getting abnormally high scores (for me) and I thought it odd, so I timed the beeps, and sure enough, the time between beeps in each level is too long. If you use this app as a benchmark for a physical test or PAT, you're going to be in for a rude awakening.
