The aims of this study were to design a specific Jiu-Jitsu anaerobic performance test (JJAPT) and investigate the relationship between blood lactate ([La]), heart rate (HR) and rating of perceived exertion (RPE) during simulated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu combat (SBJJC) and JJAPT.

Dr. Jason Gillis will be contributing a number of scientific communications at this years Fall meeting of the New England Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine.

AIM: To test the construct validity and reliability of the session rating of perceived exertion (sRPE) method by examining the relationship between RPE and physiological parameters (heart rate: HR and blood lactate concentration: [La –] ) and the correlations between sRPE and two HR–based methods for quantifying internal training load (Banister’s method and Edwards’s method) during karate training camp.

If you’re in the Boston Area on Saturday May 2nd, stop by Salem State University for the Spring meeting of the Massachusetts Association of Clinical Exercise Physiologists (MACEP). There will be a number of presentations, and Dr. Jason Gillis will be presenting recent research assessing the influence of Biofreeze, foam-rolling and Kinesiology Tape on recover from exercise-induced muscle damage.
