The Effects of Fitness and Quality of Health on Rating of Perceived Exertion

  • O. M. Evdokimova


It has become obvious in recent decades that technical progress influences the increase of psychosocial stress factors and as a consequence results in a deterioration in the health state and the appearance of sub-clinical changes in a large part of the population (Aro, Hasan,1987; Vein et al., 1988; Bundzen, 1992). In relation to this, there arises a problem in making the correct physical exercise prescription even in healthy subjects, especially if they exercise without supervision and self-control remains the only method of training control (Bundzen, Dibner, 1994).
