York Test

Postby firecoder9 » Sun Jun 24, 2018 9:09 pm

Hi, Anyone done the York test recently? I'm wondering how the treadmill protocol works. I've done OFAI several times, and have read some of the old post about the York. Have people found it easier/harder than OFAI? Is there somewhere you can find that speeds/inclines like the old OFAI one?

Thanks,

J

Starts off with a warm up period.
4 min @ 3.5 mph/4% incline
2 min @ 5 mph/ 4% incline
2 min @ 6 mph/ 4% incline
2 min @ 7 mph/ 4% incline
*** at this point they will assess what speed you seem comfortable running at, they may increase you to 7.5 mph (well use 7 as an example)
2 min @ 7 mph/ 6% incline etc

They will now increase the incline % every 2 minutes until you max out.

Also note that you can take a walking break for 2 min @ 3.5 mph/4% incline. You will resume at the next scheduled increment.

Hope this helps. Some people end up running for 30-45 min to max out. Definitely not as efficient as the brock test or ofai.
