Because older individuals may take up to 5 minutes to reach their steady state (12) (when cardiovascular variables plateau for that level of exercise intensity [13]), the rating of perceived exertion, electrocardiogram, HR, and blood pressure were assessed after 5 minutes of treadmill walking and the peak values recorded.
1994) Rating of perceived exertion and blood lactate concentration during submaximal running.
Abbreviations: MEB = Medical Evaluation Board, MOLLE = modular lightweight load-carrying equipment, OEF = Operating Enduring Freedom, OIF = Operation Iraqi Freedom, RPE = Rating of Perceived Exertion, TTA = transtibial amputation, V[O.
The study's first hypothesis was that heart rate, rating of perceived exertion, and level of perceived fatigue would significantly increase at each level of task demand.
Cool down (5 min -DB split squat L leg easy pedal) -Standing DB bent-over row Data collection consisted of heart rate, blood lactate, and rating of perceived exertion.
We calculated descriptive statistics for age, time since stroke onset, body mass index, HR, SSS, BI, total distance (in meters) walked in 15 gait sessions, mean values of speed and amount of BWS in the gait trainer, Borg Rating of Perceived Exertion Scale ratings, and the content of the additional physiotherapy provided.
Borg designed the first rating of perceived exertion (RPE) scale (Borg, 1982), which is widely believed to be one of the best indicators of degree of physical strain during exercise.
Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of horseback riding on the heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP), rating of perceived exertion (RPE), and caloric expenditure of normal healthy children.
In retrospect, Borg's Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) scale has proven to be incredibly effective in measuring physiological stress and perceived exertion during exercise (Dunbar, Robertson, Baun, Blandin, Metz, Burdett, & Goss, 1992).
The purpose of this study was to determine if ingesting a carbohydrate-protein gel results in improved finishing success (training quantity), run time differences, number of gates completed (training quality), and Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) during slalom training in elite junior racers.
The overall rating of perceived exertion is thought of as representing a kind of "gestalt" that is, an individual's integration of a great number of sensations (Borg, 1962).
