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.
