Considering the population’s lack of aerobic activity and strength training, it is important to examine the psychological processes that affect physical activity motivation and exercise performance. The solution we propose is tailoring

Exercise improves most lipid-related atherosclerotic risk factors ( Fletcher et al., 2005 ), possibly leading to lower cardiovascular disease risk ( Berlin & Colditz, 1990 ). Exercise before a meal attenuates fasting TG and PPL by 20%–25% ( Freese et

The amount of intravascular fluid can change dynamically during exercise, but its regulation is not sufficiently clarified; however, these changes determine hemodynamics and physical performance. Our present study aims to better understand the rearrangement of fluid spaces during short-term maximal

Clinical Scenario The fifth international conference on concussion in sport recommends integrating supervised aerobic exercise early in the treatment phase and reducing periods of rest to only 24 to 48 hours after injury. 1 Previous reasoning behind rest was that it reduced the risk for subsequent

The goals of this study were to test whether exercise-related stimuli can elicit automatic evaluative responses and whether automatic evaluations reflect exercise setting preference in highly active exercisers. An adapted version of the Affect Misattribution Procedure was employed. Seventy-two highly active exercisers (26 years ± 9.03; 43% female) were subliminally primed (7 ms) with pictures depicting typical fitness center scenarios or gray rectangles (control primes). After each prime, participants consciously evaluated the “pleasantness” of a Chinese symbol. Controlled evaluations were measured with a questionnaire and were more positive in participants who regularly visited fitness centers than in those who reported avoiding this exercise setting. Only center exercisers gave automatic positive evaluations of the fitness center setting (partial eta squared = .08). It is proposed that a subliminal Affect Misattribution Procedure paradigm can detect automatic evaluations to exercising and that, in highly active exercisers, these evaluations play a role in decisions about the exercise setting rather than the amounts of physical exercise. Findings are interpreted in terms of a dual systems theory of social information processing and behavior.
