Agility L test

The L Test is an agility test frequently used in the world of sports and training. It’s very simple to perform and requires little equipment. With this test, acceleration, speed and the subject’s ability to make changes of position and direction can be measured.


  • Required Material: A flat non-slip surface, 3 cones and marks to delimit the course of the circuit, a tape measure and a stopwatch.
  • Procedure: Three cones are placed as shown in the illustration, at a distance of 5 meters from each other in an L-shaped pattern. During this test, the subject must make changes of direction of 90º and 180º. The objective of the test is to complete the course (A-B-A-B-B-C-B-A) in the shortest possible time. The subject starts with his/her foot behind the starting line (A), in a sprint start position and begins the run at the evaluator’s signal. The test is finished when the subject crosses the finish line (A) with any part of his/her body, the stopwatch is stopped and the elapsed time will be recorded. Any attempt in which the subject passes over a cone instead of going around it will be considered null and void and will not be counted.
  • Assessment: It is measured in seconds (sec) and the subject has a maximum of 3 attempts. (En Fisicalcoach,) The lowest time, as well as the mean and the median can be recorded.


  • Remarks: Since in exercises that require changes of direction performance depends on the angle and speed during the execution, different tests should be considered and the most specific and appropriate one should be chosen in each case. Fisicalcoach features a large set of tests available to perform.
