The testee starts from a prone position (head showing in the direction of the run) and negotiates, as fast as possible, a cone positioned 10 (ten) meters away.

As soon as testee gets back to the start point, he briefly assumes a prone position, claps his hands behind his back, jumps up onto his feet and sprints again.

The aim is to run five and a half laps in the fastest time possible.
