Episode 61: How to measure intensity 150 150 Stephanie Thompson
In today’s episode I discuss how to measure intensity using a 1-20 subjective RPE. I take the time to describe the different elements such as subjective intensity, heart rate, the talk test, and the breathing gears. I go through each and explain how to use them during training and a curling game. Key Resources Mentioned: Listen/watch on Curling News, below or your favourite streaming service In case you missed them, these episodes would be a great follow up listen:
