The agility test involves doing figure eights around a couple of posts, to see how fast I can change direction. The speed test is a 40m sprint. The power test is a vertical leap that involves jumping, then extending one up upwards to touch the highest stick you possibly can on a yardstick (your height is taken into account for this one). And the endurance part of things is measured by that beep test.
In comparison to the people I do the tests alongside, I feel like I do best in the power test, but my best score is for agility, closely followed by speed. My endurance result… ergh, not so great. It's the beep test's fault.
Powerade does the sums and calculates that my total Powerscore is 635 – and hey, I’m pretty happy with that considering that Mitchell Johnson’s Powerscore is 881! I’m only about 25% less fit than my favourite male cricketer.
