The ability to measure and control the internal training load (TL) of athletes is important to optimize athletic performance. However, at present, there are no methods available for evaluating internal TL during swimming. The session-RPE method is a practical, noninvasive system used to quantify the internal TL placed on athletes. This article discusses how the session-RPE method may be used to monitor swim training and ultimately improve the training process of swimmers.
