When completing an Aerobic Endurance activity, you should work at an RPE of about 6 or 7. Brisk Walking or Road Cycling are common exercises that fall under this category.

RPE stands for Rate of Perceived Exertion and is based on a 10-point scale.

10 = extreme exertion -- conversation is impossible

8 = high effort -- conversation is extremely labored

6 = optimum effort -- conversation is difficult, but possible

4 = medium effort -- conversation is easy to maintain

2 = warm up
