How can I measure my training intensity?
If you don’t know the answer to that question, then you are in the right place.
Workout intensity is vital to measure as it can tell you whether you are training too hard or not pushing it hard enough. Do too much, and you risk injury and/or burnout. Do too little, and your fitness level will plateau, even decline, which is not what you want.
One of the commonly used methods is the Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE). Using this rating system is a crucial component of any training program—regardless of your current fitness level and goals.
In this post, I will give you an overview of RPE—what is it, why you should use it, and how to efficiently use for maximum effect.
So, are you excited? Then here we go.
