The Results of Training (修行の成果, Shugyō no Seika) is episode 3 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
Naruto, though Kakashi hasn't officially started the test yet, begins attacking Kakashi with his shadow clones to catch Kakashi, who has his Sharingan activated, off-guard. Jiraiya, Tsunade, Shizune who are shown watching the bell test, as well as Kakashi, have seen Naruto's improvement with its timing. Naruto's attempt to catch Kakashi off-guard fails and Kakashi officially started the test.
Sasori and Deidara easily enter Sunagakure after Yūra, Sasori's spy killed the guards on the entrance. Creating a large clay bird as transportation, Deidara proceeds to find the jinchūriki of Shukaku, Gaara.
Kakashi begins to attack using taijutsu, and he (as well as Jiraiya, Tsunade and Shizune) notes Naruto and Sakura's improvement as team. Deidara manages to incapacitate the scouts who watched the skies above Sunagakure with his explosive clays. Meanwhile, Naruto and Sakura are able to release themselves from genjutsu. Kakashi realises that his old tricks won't work anymore. Back to Sunagakure, Gaara finally faces Deidara, who thought that his infiltration was successful.
