Exertion/Velocity Profiling and Assessment of Accuracy of Intra-set Rating of Perceived Exertion in the Front Squat and Hexagonal Bar Deadlift

Autoregulation is defined as a systematic approach of incorporating individualization into a periodized strength training plan to allow progression towards maximal performance. Recent literature in

Effects of subjective and objective autoregulation methods for intensity and volume on enhancing maximal strength during resistance-training interventions: a systematic review

Overall, the findings suggest that using both subjective autoregulation methods for intensity, such as repetitions in reserve rating of perceived exertion and flexible daily undulation periodisation, together with objective autore gulations for autoreGulation intensity and volume, could be effective methods for enhancing maximal strength.

Autoregulation in Resistance Training: Addressing the Inconsistencies

A broad overview of various autoregulation strategies and their development in both research and practice is provided whilst highlighting the inconsistencies in definitions and terminology that currently exist and an overarching conceptual framework is presented that can be used to generate operational definitions and contextualise autoreGulation within broader training theory.



Efficacy of the Repetitions in Reserve-Based Rating of Perceived Exertion for the Bench Press in Experienced and Novice Benchers

The findings suggest that the RIR-based RPE scale may be an efficacious approach for AR of bench press training load and volume in college-aged men.

The remarkable value of RPE as a psychophysiological integrator in adults is highlighted and it is suggested that the brain regulates RPE and performance in an anticipatory manner based on awareness of metabolic reserves at the start of an event and certainty of the anticipated end point.

Measuring training load in sports.

The time has come to reach consensus on assessing training accurately in different sports with scientists having already done so for the assessment of physical activity, and for defining injuries in rugby, football and cricket.

Reliability of Performance of Elite Olympic Weightlifters

The purpose of this investigation was to analyze the reliability of elite olympic weightlifters over a series of international weightlifting meets and found that the top 5 athletes were almost always more reliable than the bottom‐half athletes.

The Relationship Between Vertical Jump Power Estimates and Weightlifting Ability: A Field‐Test Approach

Results indicate that vertical jumping PP is strongly associated with weightlifting ability, and suggest that PP derived from the vertical jump (CMJ or SJ) can be a valuable tool in assessing weightlifting performance.

Control of Resistance Training Intensity by the Omni Perceived Exertion Scale

The utility of RPE for controlling resistance training intensity is demonstrated and the relationship between the RPE value, load, and mechanical power (MP) produced during the bench press is established.

Novel Resistance Training–Specific Rating of Perceived Exertion Scale Measuring Repetitions in Reserve

The Experienced squatter group exhibited slower average velocity and higher RPE at 1RM than NS, signaling greater efficiency at high intensities, and the findings demonstrate an inverse relationship betweenaverage velocity and RPE/RIR.

Comparison of Powerlifting Performance in Trained Men Using Traditional and Flexible Daily Undulating Periodization

Flexible daily undulating periodization seems to offer similar resistance training adaptations when compared with a traditional DUP in resistance-trained men.

A tool for measuring stress tolerance in elite athletes

Abstract A self-report inventory of sources of life-stress and symptoms of stress is described. The tool can be used to determine the nature of an athlete's response to training, particularly his/her


Thesession RPE appears to be a viable method for quantitating the intensity of resistance training, generally comparable to aerobic training, however, the session RPE may meaningfully underestimate the average intensity rated immediately after each set.
