Abstract
The paper presents the results of three experiments to determine the effect of sleep deprivation and physical fatigue on ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) for exercise of short (30 s) and long (15-50 min) duration. The combined data suggest that where the exercise is of several minutes' duration, RPE is increased by sleep deprivation and by physical fatigue. Where the exercise period is as short as 30 s, sleep deprivation has no effect and physical fatigue causes only a small change in the perception of exercise intensity.
