Abstract

Although perceived exertion scales were initially applied to endurance and cyclic exercises, they have been also used to monitor resistance training. The current article analyzes different criteria for the application of perception scales to resistance exercises. In addition, the proper use of perceived exertion to reflect the effect of different resistance training configurations including the fluctuation of velocity is also discussed. Furthermore, this paper also speaks to the issues of correct instructions and anchored scaling procedures, as well as how to use the perception scales to accurately select the loads, determine the number of repetitions per set, or to assess the effects of the training volume associated with different strength manifestations.
