Training volume, subjective perception of effort and mood states during a macrocycle trainingThe mean of this study was evaluated the association between the training volume, subjective perception of effort and mood states during a macrocycle training. Twenty speed swimmers, high level athletes, of both sexes were evaluated. Data were analyzed by the mean and standard deviation of foursubjective perceptions of effort, the six mood states and Brums Total. Anova of Repeated Measures and Bonferroni test was used to compare the fourperceptions and ANOVA ONE WAY and testing Tukey to compare measures of the perceptions of the effort and the mood states and Pearson correlation to analyze the relationship between training volumes, perception of effort and mood states. Results showed significant differences in PE between higher and lower training volume. The results correlation showed a significant positive correlation between perception of total effort, fatigue, confusion, total mood and the training volume, and a negative correlation with the vigor. Through such data we can conclude that there is an association between training volume, perceived exertion and the mood states, when the volume decreases, the subjective perception of effort and perception of the psychological fatigue also tend to decrease.
