Abstract
Two cycle ergometer protocols for assessing perceived exertion were compared before and after a fatiguing run. In the response (R) protocol, the subject rated the perceived exertion (RPE) of a series of power outputs assigned by the investigator. In the production (P) protocol, the investigator selected the RPE values and the subject adjusted his power output using a handheld control. The relationship between RPE and power output (the regression coefficient and the slope and intercept of the regression line) was the same for both protocols. Fatigue due to the run caused a small increase in RPE (average 1.5 units) at a given exercise intensity and a commensurate decrease in power output (average 19 W) for a given RPE.
