Abstract : The reliability of the relationship between subjective and electromyographic assessment of fatigue in an isometric muscle contraction task was established under conditions of competition, monetary reward, and over a series of trials for both male and female Ss. Studies are now under way, or planned, to determine the effects of (a) anxiety, (b) the time at which motivation is introduced, (c) training of the S, and (d) personality variables upon the assessment of fatigue and the efficiency of the performance of the Ss.
