Table data for the Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test Level 2

The Yo-Yo Intermittent Fitness 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 10 seconds active break after each 40m, with the speed increasing at set intervals until they are unable to continue (see a full description of how to conduct the Yo-Yo IR2 Test).

There are two versions of the Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test. The table below shows information about the Level 2 test, which starts at 13 km/hr. The Level 1 test is more commonly used, might want to check out the data table for the Level 1 test.
