  • Do not do any strenuous activity the day of or before the test.
  • Get 6-8 hours of rest the night before the test.
  • If taking any medications, check with your Health Care Provider to discuss possible reactions to exercise and proper dosage during testing procedures.
  • Remember to eat a balanced breakfast/lunch the day of the test (excluding caffeine and tobacco 2-3 hours and alcohol 8-12 hours prior to testing).
  • Wear clothes that will not restrict your movement (ie. Shorts, workout pants, Tshirt)
