New research by University of New Hampshire exercise scientists confirms that a low-tech, easy-to-administer test is an effective tool for gauging exercise intensity, but that it does not correspond as neatly as previously assumed to other more objective tests. In a study published recently in the Journal of Sports Sciences, UNH associate professor of Kinesiology Timothy Quinn and his former graduate student Benjamin Coons put the so-called “Talk Test” to the test.
