Perceived Rate of Exertion BORG SCALE OF EXERTION 6 TO 20

 

RATE YOURSELF

How do you know if you are pushing yourself enough to make a big dent in your health and fitness goal?

If you are not injured the way you can determine the intensity of your exertion 

There is a scale called the RPE or rate of perceived exertion.   

It sounds SO TECHNICAL but it’s not.

Quite simply, if you are able to carry on a conversation then you are not pushing yourself hard enough.   

We would like to see you bumping between 13 and 19 on the BORG RATING OF PERCEIVED EXERTION (Borg, 1998, Canada).

Next time you are running at camp, make a mental note of where you are "at".
