blp - The Bleep Test App

blp - The Bleep Test App


We all remember the Bleep Test from school, right? Being made to run up and down a hideously cold school gymnasium by a sadistic PE teacher was at one point the bane of our collective teenage existences. Well nowadays it's apparently fashionable to put yourself through this sort of thing in the name of vanity! Hurrah!

Also known as the Multi-Stage Fitness Test (though there are other variants with different names), the aim is to repeatedly run between two points 20 metres apart in a given time. The test is split into levels, with each subsequent level requiring the runner to run slightly faster than the last. Eventually exhaustions kicks in, and the runner is forced to stop and vomit. The runner's maximal rate of oxygen consumption (their VO2-max) can then be calculated from their final speed, and their approximate fitness level evaluated.

Full instructions are provided with the app, for those who don't know how the Bleep Test works.

Note that the app currently only caters for the 20 metre version of the test.

Features:
- 100% free - no adverts!
- Deliberately simple and lightweight
- Up to 5 simultaneous runners
- Calculates VO2-max to quantify a runner's fitness
- Shows a runner's results in graph form to visualise improvement over time

If you have any suggestions for improvement, or run into any problems, then please let me know by way of a review. I'm more than happy to incorporate functionality that other users would find useful!

Recent changes:
The most recent update includes better support for smaller screen sizes, and a few cosmetic tweaks.
A couple of bugs in the original code have also been ironed-out.

Not useful Beeps are uneven in places. Doesn't save past results for more than 24 hours. Easy to bump and turn off.

Sadistic pe teacher recommend This is a very simple and easy to use app. I've just beasted a group with this and they bizarrely enjoyed it. Just plug your phone into a speaker and away you go.
