In recent years, research and scientific work have been very important in various types of training processes. In order to improve the quality of training of racers of racket sports such as squash, we can use various types of tests to determine the level of the maximum VO2max, which allows you to assess the intensity of the effort. The aim of the study was to evaluate the variability of the VO2 max index in Squash players during the preparatory period. The study was conducted using two tests to diagnose cardiovascular respiratory efficiency: the Cooper test and the Beep test.Our work was conducted ona group of 20 Squash players who trained under the auspices of the Polish Squash Federation. The specialized training form lasted six weeks. There has been a progression in VO2max which is induced by regular training
