We sought to describe the differences in exercise prescription in obese subjects using attained METs as compared to the subjective perception of the effort using the Borg scale ratings of perceived exertion (Borg RPE). We studied 552 obese patients who underwent an exercise stress test in the setting of a rehabilitation program. Exercise was prescribed at 70% of peak attained METS. This method was compared to an exercise level prescription that induces a subjective perception of mild fatigue… CONTINUE READING
