Diferencias en las áreas de histéresis entre las series iniciales y finales y los valores iniciales de tasa de esfuerzo Differences between the initial and final bouts of hysteresis areas and initial values of rating of perceived exertion (RPE), heart rate (HR), and muscle oxyhaemoglobin (O2Hb). Cohen’s d is represented in values, while significant differences from the Wilcoxon test are marked (*p < .05).
