Teach-nique™ Perceived Exertion Banner
Give students a way to rate their activity intensity.
Help your students better understand the amount of energy they are exerting based on their comfort level, ability to talk, and percentage of maximum heart rate so they can better identify and match the appropriate levels of exertion for specific activities. This enormous 3’ x 5’ poster features color-coded information for visual reinforcement for the entire class, even when they are across the gym!
Important Exertion Information
Exertion ratings are color-coded on the banner and numbered, with red being the highest and blue the lowest. A corresponding exertion level explains how long that level should be maintained, so students quickly correlate how hard they are working. Red is the highest and can be maintained only for 10-30 seconds, yellow is next and must be maintained for 5-10 minutes, then, green, purple, and blue is the lowest. Each chart also displays the percentage of your maximum heart rate maximum for each exertion level.
Each exertion level in the banner also uses the example of the Talk Test. For example, if you are operating at your full 10-9 exertion level (red), you should not be able to talk while working out. If you are in the green 6-5 exertion level, you should be able to complete a couple sentences at a time while experiencing moderate shortness of breath. This is a simple and effective way to gauge individual performance.
