In Season Heart Rate and Session Rate of Perceived Exertion in Collegiate Softball Athletes
Erin R. Pletcher, PhD, ATC, CSCS
- Monitoring of workload is vital to minimize risk of overuse musculoskeletal injuries in athletes while optimizing performance
- Heart rate (HR) and session rate of perceived exertion (sRPE) have been shown to be reliable measures of training intensity in steady state and interval exercise
- Relationship between training load and injury in running-based team sports has been established
- Limited studies have investigated internal load in throwing-dominant athletes despite rigorous competition season
