The 3 Minute Step Test is one of many variations of step test procedures, used to determine aerobic fitness.

*** Procedure of 3 Minute Step Test ***

1.) The athlete steps up and down on the platform at a rate of 22 steps per minute for females and at 24 steps per minute for males. Pace is set by the internal metronome inside the app. The subjects are to step using a four-step cadence, 'up-up-down-down' for 3 minutes.

2.) The athlete stops immediately on completion of the test, where they are guided through the counting of their heart rate for 15 seconds.

3.) The user then enters their HR and this information is then used to determine the level of aerobic fitness and a predicted V02max. The theory is that the lower your heart rate on completion of activity, the higher your aerobic fitness base.
