Table 3 Average HR and RPE during the duration of each modality (Mean ± SD)

From: The acute effect of exercise modality and nutrition manipulations on post-exercise resting energy expenditure and respiratory exchange ratio in women: a randomized trial

  HR (bpm) RPE
AEE 126 ± 7* 10 ± 1*§
HIIT 184 ± 29# 16 ± 1#
HIRT 129 ± 17 15 ± 1
  1. AEE, aerobic endurance exercise; HIIT, high-intensity interval run; HIRT, high-intensity resistance training; HR, heart rate (bpm); RPE, rating of perceived exertion (Borg scale).
  2. *Indicates significant difference between AEE and HIIT (p < 0.0001).
  3. #Indicates significant difference between HIIT and HIRT (p < 0.0001 to p = 0.001).
  4. §Indicates significant difference between AEE and HIRT (p < 0.0001).
