Why the Yo-Yo Test?

The Yo-Yo test is a fitness test developed by the Danish soccer physiologist Jens Bangsbo and his colleagues.

The test evaluates an individual's ability to repeatedly perform intervals over a prolonged period of time, particularly for athletes from sports such as tennis, team handball, basketball and soccer or similar sports.

The yo-yo intermittent test was developed specifically for soccer players, though it is suitable for similar sports teams which are intermittent in nature. The level 1 test is designed for recreational level players, while the level 2 test is for elite soccer players.
