The article presents a study of youth soccer players' high intensity interval training by using fitness testing results. Prescription variables obtained from the 30-15 Intermittent Fitness Test (IFT) were used to improve physiological variables of players. It is concluded that 30-15 IFT based conditioning sessions are practical and time efficient methods that can be utilized by the coach to improve the players' physiological parameters.
