About Luc Léger

The beep test was first proposed by the Canadian physiologist Luc A. Léger, Emiritus professor, Department of Kinesiology at the University of Montreal. Léger has a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology from the University of Alberta, located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Since his first paper describing the beep test in the 1980s, the test has been quickly adopted around the world, and has become a common test of the aerobic running ability for team sports players. The test has been the subject of hundreds of research papers, including many co-authored by Léger (see below plus many more beep test references).
