Quite simply, what is RPE? In the early 1980's, Gunnar Borg introduced the perceived exertion scale, which is a way to gauge how hard you feel you are working when working out. RPE (rate of perceived exertion) makes you aware by listening to your body, as it is subject to the way you feel. There are two scales that are commonly used to determine RPE. The Borg scale begins at six and goes up to 20. Borg later developed a simpler scale that begins at zero and ends at 10. The lowest end of the scale is equivalent to no exertion while the highest end of the scale represents exercising to your maximum capacity. This is a great way to quickly see how hard you are working out if working with a trainer or taking an aerobic class. Have a safe and wonderful Labor Dary weekend.
