Intended Stimulus: Coach Ben Bergeron calls this his "test for pure conditioning (not skill, not strength). This test makes it easy to compare athletes across a spectrum of sizes, locations, and regardless of skill or equipment... This is also an incredible test of mental toughness, as it is very easy to give up on this workout mentally before your body actually reaches failure. Basically, this is a test of 'Whatcha-got?'"

Strategy: Strategy for this one is slow down and aim to have each round done on 50 seconds, don’t go all out at the start. Be ready to pick up the barbell as soon as the next minute starts. Aim for a minimum work requirement of 10 minutes. If you think you'll be unable to complete 10 rounds at Rx, consider scaling.

Background: “Bergeron Beep Test” is one of CrossFit New England’s @cfne official benchmarks, named for owner and head coach Ben Bergeron.

The "Beep Test" is a reference to another multi-stage fitness test, also known as the PACER - is a running test used to estimate an athlete's aerobic capacity (VO2 max) in which athletes must run from one line to another before a timed beep.

CrossFit New England is famous for being the training grounds for multiple CrossFit Games champions under Bergeron. "Bergeron Beep Test" was first posted on their website June 23, 2014. CFNE names their daily WODs "for fun," but this one is from a short list of official benchmarks provided to us by CFNE’s former Director of Operations, Eamon Coyne.
