Talk Test Response Helps Set Exercise Intensity

The Talk Test provides a simple and reliable indicator of the proper training intensity for runners, suggests a report in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.

A pace where it’s just starting to become difficult to recite the Pledge of Allegiance (or a nursery rhyme, or any other familiar lines) is a good indicator of when trained athletes have reached their recommended exercise intensity, according to the study.

If the person can’t comfortably recite the Pledge all the way through, it means that he or she has likely passed the VT and that exercise intensity is “unacceptably high.”
