Power of perception

Entrance near the Whyalla Cafe

Testing, training and applications in sport, exercise and rehabilitation

It is recognised that exercise can be used to improve overall health and fitness, but how do we know if we are working hard enough to achieve the benefits? There are many hi-tech ways to measure and assess the capacity and effects of exercise including work rate, heart rate, breathing rate, oxygen use and blood lactate, but they’re often time consuming and expensive. 

During this free public lecture, Professor Roger Eston, Head of School: Health Sciences at the University of South Australia, will present research findings from old, young, elite, recreational and clinical populations on the remarkable value of the rating of perceived exertion (RPE). He will explain how RPE is now a recognised measure for predicting and monitoring exercise capacity, training effects, optimising exercise intensity via self-regulation and interpreting fluctuations in performance.

Professor Eston will introduce a personalised, online, user-friendly and remarkably accurate psychophysiological integrator – the subjective sense of effort. You’ll never exercise the same way again!

Date: Thursday 4 May

Time: 7:00pm - 8.30pm

Location: UniSA Whyalla Campus Library, 111 Nicolson Avenue, Entrance near the Whyalla Cafe
