Cooper Test / Demi-Cooper Test


Test de Cooper :

Cooper test allows you to estimate your VO2 max (also maximal oxygen consumption, maximal oxygen uptake, peak oxygen uptake or maximal aerobic capacity) and your vVO2max (velocity at maximal oxygen uptake) in running.

Procedure: Run, after warming up, the greatest possible distance in 12 minutes.
In order to accurately determine the distance covered in ruuning, the test should ideally be performed on a track in an athletics stadium.

It is also possible to perform the test outside the stadium, ideally on flat ground, then calculate your distance covered in running on : Sport Distance Calculator

Attention: Performing a Cooper test involves risks for subjects with little training and / or with health problems (especially heart problems).

Demi-Cooper test:

The Demi-Cooper test allows you to estimate your vVO2max (velocity at maximal oxygen uptake) in running. This test has the advantage of being more precise in the calculation of the vVO2max because it corresponds to the average time of the support of the vVO2max (4 to 8 minutes).

Procedure: Run, after warming up, the greatest possible distance in 6 minutes.

It is also possible to perform the test outside the stadium, ideally on flat ground, then calculate your distance covered in running on : Sport Distance Calculator

Attention: Performing a Cooper test involves risks for subjects with little training and / or with health problems (especially heart problems).


Demi-Cooper test:

Distance covered in 6 minutes of running: meters
