How many burpees can you do in five minutes? How fast can you run 1.5 miles?

The burpee test is a bit truer, we’ll be honest. Dr. H.P Burpee designed the burpee to test fitness, in fact. It’s a great tool with which to express your VO2 MAX. But if you are an experienced runner, and feel that will be a better measure of your fitness, we’ve included 1.5 mile time trial splits to determine your fitness level. You should do both, and if you have a huge divergence between your two scores, average them out, or pick the LOWER of the two tests.
