Indian cricket sensation Virat Kohli has once again proved his unwavering commitment to fitness and athleticism by acing the Yo-Yo Test ahead of the highly anticipated Asia Cup 2023.
Renowned for his exceptional prowess on the field, Kohli’s dedication to physical fitness has revolutionized Indian cricket completely. It is worth mentioning that it was Kohli only who played a pivotal role in introducing the Yo-Yo Test as a mandatory assessment for all Indian cricketers under his tenure as the Team India captain.
What is Yo-Yo Test?
The Yo-Yo Test is a rigorous aerobic fitness evaluation that involves players sprinting back and forth between markers placed 20 meters apart. The test pushes athletes to their limits and is designed to measure endurance and cardiovascular fitness. Each 40-metre run is followed by a 10-second recovery period, with the test continuing until the player reaches complete exhaustion. The minimum passing score stands at 16.5, a level that challenges even the fittest individuals.
