In this week’s lab, you will be using different cardio exercises and attempting to exercise at steady state (maintain a constant HR).
You are free to choose from the following pieces of cardio equipment
- Rowing machine
- Skipping ropes
During your ~18 minutes of activity (measuring every 3 minutes), your partner will record your:
- Heart rate
- Ratings of Perceived Exertion (RPE, scale of 1 – 10)
- Did your HR data match up with your ratings of perceived exertion over the 18 minutes of exercise?
- What influence does the choice of exercise have on ratings of perceived exertion?
