intermittent yo-yo endurance test

Quick Reference

A test based on the same principles as the shuttle test, but with a 5-s recovery period at the end of every pair of 20-m shuttles so that it more closely simulates the exercise pattern within a team game such as soccer. As with the shuttle test, the aim is to complete as many shuttles as possible, while keeping up with the required pace.
