MEASURING PRACTICE EFFORT 5.1

This fifth issue of Volume 13 of Coaching Science Abstracts reviews articles concerned with using ratings of perceived exertion and heart rates to measure practice effort. Four previous issues, namely Volume 1(5), Volume 4(5), Volume 7(5), and Volume 10(5) also dealt with this topic. The information from those sources, as well as that contained in this issue, will yield an extensive knowledge base of recent research in these two indices of exercise response.
