The rating of perceived exertion (Borg’s scale) – subjective quantification of exertion – is widely used in sports medicine to monitor or prescribe levels of exercise intensity. Numerous studies have shown that RPE is well correlated with physiological measures of exercise intensity, such as: heart rate, blood lactate levels, % VO2 max, VO2, respiratory rate. Due to its high accessibility (simplicity, low cost), the RPE also finds application in pathology (cardiovascular, respiratory disorders) and exercise during pregnancy.

Key words:  Borg’s Scale, rate of perceived exertion, RPE.
