There are a few ways to judge a person’s intensity when they are exercising. One of the easiest (without having to use any fancy equipment) is called “Perceived Exertion” or P.E.  It is a technique that requires the individual to judge their overall intensity while exercising. The accuracy of this test is dependent on a person’s ability to judge their own output of energy and not take into account any other influences they may be feeling (I.e sore knee or achy back muscles). Exertion is based on how you are breathing, energy, heart rate. The current rating scale is (1-10) 1 being the easiest.
