Ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) have been used extensively in prolonged, submaximal activity to prescribe exercise intensity and as a predictor of physiological stress. In contrast, the use of RPE in more intense, supramaximal activity is less prevalent. This study showed that during constant-load, supramaximal exercise, RPE appears to be reliable, allowing for later studies to investigate the interaction between perception of effort, perceptions of fatigue and exercise intensity using high-intensity activity. Hughes assisted with the design of the study, the data collection and the editing of the manuscript.
