Cooper test

 

 

 

The American doctor Dr. Kenneth Cooper has developed this test. After a good warming-up you run on a track (or a piece way, where a helper measures the distance) in 12 minutes as many meters as possible. Try to run in a gradual speed. Because this is a heavy effort test this test is not suitable for people with a bad health. Do not forget to do after the test a good cooling-down.
