The objectives of this research were to investigate the accuracy and precision with which trained and untrained participants estimate the magnitude of forceful exertion and to evaluate the mathematical relationship between actual and estimated exertion. Three groups of participants estimated, as a percentage of maximum voluntary contraction (%MVC), the magnitude of submaximal exertion for 12 simulated tasks. In addition to the control group, one group was exposed to one physical benchmark (100… CONTINUE READING
