RPE DOES NOT PREDICT AEROBIC DANCE PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSES
Schaeffer, S. A., Browder, K. D., & Darby, L. (1994). Ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) and metabolic responses of females during aerobic dance exercise. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 26(5), Supplement abstract 869.
RPE was not representative of exercise intensity (HR, VO2) during aerobic dance exercise with combined leg and arm movements. This contradicts the earlier study where it was shown that aerobic dance under-predicts maximum HR and VO2 by 10%.
