As a bodybuilding coach, Eugene Teo regularly shares advice on how to build strength and muscle safely and sustainably through resistance training—but when it comes to the cardio fitness side of things, he’s the first to admit his skills are limited. In a new video on his YouTube channel, he steps out of his comfort zone with progressive aerobic cardiovascular endurance running (PACER)also known as multi-stage fitness test, or beep test.

PACER consists of a series of random runs of 20 meters, with the goal of each length being to reach the line before you hear the beep. The gap between each beep gets shorter and shorter as the test progresses, until you run. When you can no longer complete the full 20 meters before hearing the beep, it means you are out of the test.

“I feel like I got PTSD from this because of gym class in high school,” says Eugene. “I smoke anything physical.”

He joined coach Sharele Grant for the challenge. “I often find that I have more physical strength in my legs than I do in fitness,” she says. “I can work hard, but I’ll be completely crushed in the end.”

After a brief warm-up and picking up some high school pre-workout energy in the form of Nerds candy, Eugene and Sharele set off on the test—and failed at level 6, which they partly attributed to the fact that they carried a fair amount of muscle mass between them.

“I just hate that burning feeling,” he said. “I could happily do hours of low-intensity cardio… but when my lungs started to burn, I was mentally exhausted.”

Sharele also points out that Eugene’s running form is inefficient. “You’re making things difficult for yourself,” he said. “You’re so heavy on your feet, and you’re not using your arms at full capacity to be able to get your stride and stride.” He adds that the PACER test is a good challenge, as it’s quite difficult to inflict an injury as long as you warm up enough.

“I’ve done a VO2 test before getting on the bike, which is easier because there’s no skill,” says Eugene. “But running, whether on a treadmill or outdoors or whatever, is very technical. I haven’t run in years. And even if I have been running for years, a lot of people run, but they don’t have good technique. skill.”
