As identified above, rate of perceived exertion was maintained through the application of Borg's (1971) 15-point RPE scale.
To gauge the rate of perceived exertion, use a scale such as 1 to 10 or 6 to 20, the lowest number indicating a very easy intensity and the top number indicating a very hard workout.
Perceptual measures: Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) and a rating from the Thermal Sensation Scale (TSS) were obtained based on 10-point (Borg CR-10 scale) and 8-point (TSS) Likert scales, respectively.
Heart rate and rate of perceived exertion (RPE) were measured during the final min of each 4 min of the speed increment.
During the trials--Heart rate, core body temperature, room temperature, relative humidity and rate of perceived exertion or RPE (18) were monitored at intervals of 10 min.
Rate of perceived exertion increased significantly (P<0.
This study examined the effects of poles when walking on the rate of perceived exertion (RPE), physiological and kinematics parameters, and upon the mean ratio between locomotor and respiratory rhythms.
2003) compared two formats of high-velocity resistance training protocols (continuous vs discontinuous) on HR and rate of perceived exertion (RPE) in young subjects and concluded that the discontinuous protocol was significantly less demanding.
Background: Patients in cardiac rehabilitation programs are taught to self-monitor heart rate (HR), rate of perceived exertion (RPE), and signs and symptoms of cardiac distress when they are performing strenuous activities.
Self-monitoring recommendations involving heart rate (HR), rate of perceived exertion (RPE), and recognition of the signs and symptoms of cardiac distress during aerobically stressful activities are important parts of the disease management process.
5,6,20-22) Therefore, the purpose of this study was to describe patient's knowledge of and adherence to self-monitoring recommendations regarding heart rate, rate of perceived exertion, and signs and symptoms of cardiac distress 1 month following completion of extended phase I cardiac rehabilitation (CR).
