Bleep Test

An endurance test designed to determine an atheletes VO2 Max.

The test consists of two lines which the athelete has to run between before a "bleep" on a tape goes off. The speed increases with each level until the athelete cannot keep up with the bleeps.

It starts at 8.5 km/h and increases to 19.5 km/h at level 23. Only elite athletes are expected to reach the last three levels. David Beckham, of Manchester United Football Club can complete the entire 5400 metre test.
