What is RPE and Training Load?

Print Friendly and PDF

Workout RPE
Rate of Perceived Exertion or RPE is a way of measuring physical activity intensity level. Perceived exertion is how hard you feel your body is working. It is based on the physical sensations a person experiences during physical activity, including increased heart rate, increased respiration or breathing rate, increased sweating, and muscle fatigue. It is rated as a number between 1 and 10.

Workout RPE Load
It is the Rate of Perceived Exertion times the duration it took to complete the Training Load. For example, if perceived exertion is 6 and the workout took 50 minutes to complete, the RPE Load would 300.

Workout Training Load
Training Load can be calculated as Sets X Reps X Weight. For example 4 sets of 6 reps of 75lbs would be 4 X 6 X 75lbs = 1800

Workout Duration
The amount of time it took to complete a particular workout or set of exercises.

See the article, RPE and Training Load Calculations for more information.
