Table data for the Yo-Yo Intermittent Endurance Test Level 1

The Yo-Yo Intermittent Endurance Test is a test of the ability to do repeated high-intensity exercise. Participants run out and back on a 20 meter course, with a 5 seconds active break after each 40m, with the speed increasing at set intervals until they are unable to continue (see a general description of how to conduct the Yo-Yo Test).

There are two versions of the Yo-Yo Intermittent Endurance Test. The table below shows information about the Level 1 test, which starts at 8.0 km/hr. See the similar table for the Yo-Yo Intermittent Endurance Test Level 2, which starts at 11.5 km/hr.

In this (endurance) version of the yo-yo test, there is a 5-second recovery period, unlike the commonly used Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test Level 1 which has a recovery period of 10 seconds after each 40m run. See more information about all the versions of the yo-yo tests.
