From: Resistance-induced brain activity changes during cycle ergometer exercises

  Early Middle Late
Low-resistance
Borg RPE 9 (1) 12.5 (2) 16 (2)†‡
Mean heart rate 106.7 (13.9) 111.8 (12.7) 119.4 (14.8)†‡
High-resistance
Borg RPE 13 (0) 16 (2) 18 (1)†‡
Mean heart rate 137.8 (23.5) 150.8 (20.8) 157.6 (22.3)†‡
  1. All data are represented as median (interquartile range). The paired permutation test is used to compare the differences between two pedal stages. The mark † indicates that the middle or late stage variable is significantly different from its early-stage value (p < 0.05/3). The mark ‡ indicates that the late-stage variable is significantly different from its middle-stage value (p < 0.05/3).
