Aim. To investigate the relationship between subjective exercise experiences and exercise intensity in active and inactive females.
Methods. Participants consisted of 8 inactive and 8 active female volunteers who completed the Subjective Exercise Experience Scale pre-exercise, 10 min during and 5 min after low and high intensity exercise.
Results. A series of 2×2×3 (Group × Condition × Time) between-participants repeated measures analysis of variance revealed a significant Condition × Time interaction for Psychological Well-being scores (p<0.01). During exercise participants reported significantly higher Psychological Well-being scores in the low intensity compared to high intensity exercise condition. In the high intensity exercise condition participants reported higher Psychological Well-being scores per exercise than before or during exercise. Time main effects were also recorded for Psychological Well-being (p<0.05) and Psychological Distress scores (p<0.05).
Conclusion. These preliminary findings indicate that exercise may positively influence psychological states irrespective of participants’ activity status.
