The Jagiellonian University Sports Office is holding the University Cooper Test for all members of the JU academic community. This endurance trial will help you examine the level of your physical fitness. The registration will take place right before the start at the Na Groblach stadium. The subsequent runs will begin every 15 minutes, starting from 9.00 a.m.
Cooper test is an endurance trial designed by the American physician Kenneth H. Cooper for the US Army in 1968, consisting in a 12-minute non-stop run. Today, it is widely used to examine the level of physical fitness of individuals, especially athletes. The test aims at determining the maximal aerobic capacity (maximal oxygen consumption, VO2 max), which indicates the level of physical stamina. The outcome is based on the covered distance, compared to the age and sex of the tested person.
