The Effects of Modality Preference on the Temporal Dynamics of Affective Response Assoicated with Acute Exercise in College Aged Females

VIEWS: 2 PAGES: 13

An experiment was conducted to examine the influence of modality choice on affect response during and following exercise. It was hypothesized that affect response during and following the most preferred activity would be rated as more pleasant than that reported during and following the least preferred and control conditions. Participants were 42 female university students who completed an exercise preference questionnaire and then randomly performed their most preferred activity, least preferred activity, and a non-exercise control condition on separate days. Each condition consisted of a 5 min baseline period, a 30 min activity period and a 15 min recovery period. The affect, arousal, and RPE scales were assessed prior to each condition, 3 times during the activity, and 2 times during recovery. Participants reported experiencing a more pleasant activated state following the most preferred activity when compared to the least preferred and control activities. Additionally, participants reported feeling a more pleasant state during the non-exercise control condition compared to the least preferred condition. These results may have implications for exercise prescription and motivation for future exercise participation in college aged females. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
