Yo-Yo Endurance Test (Beep Test)
*We use the original version of the Yo-Yo Endurance Test. You'll run back and forth between two markers placed 20 Meters apart. The test will set your pace. When you can no longer keep up with the test, you're test will end and your score will be recorded.
Hint: It is best to arrive at the line right on time. If you're too early, you're wasting energy running too fast. If you're too late, you run the risk of having the test ended.

40 Yard Sprint Test
*You'll start the 40 Yard Sprint Test from a stationary position. The moment you move, the timer will start. When you cross the Finish Line, your score will be recorded. You'll have two attempts at this test.
Hint: Run all the way through the finish line, . . . perhaps even imagine the Finish Line being 5 yards further.

Chest Press To Maximum Repetitions (40 lbs. with Metronome)
* A metronome will be set to 70 beats per minute. While seated in our Chest Press Machine, you'll extend your arms to press 40 pounds on the first tone, then return on the next. When you can no longer keep up with the tones, you're test will end and your score will be reported. You must fully extend your arms and fully return (to where the chalk line goes back into the weights).
Below, you will see the records. They stand well above the average for this test. The high score in the past four years has been 42 (2016), 51 (2015 and 2014) and 48 (2013). A score in the 30's or 40s is pretty good.

Hint: Jump immediately upon landing from the previous jump. Don't let your momentum stop.
