95) AJ1 = Astride jumps; FB2 = Forwards-backwards jumps; 6MWT3 = Six-minute walk test; Jumps4 = Number of jumps performed before fatigue; Time5 = Time taken to fatigue (seconds); Distance6 = Distance walked in six-minutes (meters); Borg7 = Modified Borg scale
of perceived breathlessness; 15c8 = Fifteen count breathlessness score; SpO29 = Pulse oxygen saturation; HR10 = Heart rate
For example, Fernandez (2000) measured the level of perceived fatigue in professional cyclists with the Borg scale
Subjects performed 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at a rate of perceived exertion [less than or equal to]13 on the Borg scale
We recommend using the Borg scale
shown in Chapter 4 instead.
