Burpee test

The objective of this test is to assess the athlete’s agility and balance.

Required resources

To undertake this test you will require:
  • Dry surface
  • Assistant.

How to conduct the test

The test is conducted as follows:
  • The athlete practices the technique which involves:
-          standing erect, arms by the side
-          placing the hands on the floor in front of the feet(squat position)
-          thrusting the legs back to assume a push up position with a straight line from the shoulders to the heels
-          returning to the squat position
-          returning to the starting position.
·         The athlete performs as many repetitions as possible in 15 seconds
·         A point is given for every successfully completed repetition
·         Half a point is deducted for each repetition in which poor technique is demonstrated, such as:
-          not resuming the erect position
-          kicking the feet back prior to hand placement
-          not assuming a straight push up body position.


Analysis of the result is by comparing it with the results of previous tests. It is expected that, with appropriate training between each test, the analysis would indicate an improvement.

Target group

This test is suitable for active athletes but not for individuals where the test would be contraindicated.


Reliability would depend upon how strict the test is conducted and the individual’s level of motivation to perform the test.


There are no published tables to relate results to potential performance in competition.
