Beep Test Calculator

                
 

The Beep Test Calculator will be online soon in the meantime you can use our chart below.

The following is a table of predicted maximum oxygen uptake values (VO2 Max) for the Beep Test. It was developed by the Department of Physical Education and Sports Science Loughborough University, 1987.

Facts                                      English Football star David Beckham and American Cycling Legend, Lance Armstrong are two of the very few people who can complete the beep test.

At lower speeds/ levels, athletes might be laughing or complaining about the ease of the test.  However, things get quiet tough at about Speed 9, and by Speed 11 to 13, people are dropping out.
