Here are a couple of common questions we get on training for the beep test:
- Is it okay to train for the beep test on an oval or on grass?
- Is it okay to just step out the distance to measure your 20 meters
The short answer is NO to both of these questions.
You should avoid practicing for the beep test on grass because the surface could be unpredictable, you don’t know what’s under the surface. It could be a little pothole, it can be slippery, tt’s just not a safe environment to practice on.
It’s best to avoid doing the beep test training on the grass.
It would be great if you have a basketball court that you can go inside and practice whenever you like. The next best thing is an athletics track, synthetic rubber type surface is much more predictable than doing it on grass.
