Table 2 Heart rate and rate of perceived exertion scores at rest, after the warm up (Post-WU) and at the end of the RSA-test (Post-RSA)

From: Warm-up durations in a hot-dry climate affect thermoregulation, mean power-output and fatigue, but not peak power in specific soccer repeated-sprint ability
