There is a paucity of methods for improving the affective experience of exercise. We tested a novel method based on discoveries about the relation between exercise intensity and pleasure, and lessons from behavioral economics. We examined the effect of reversing the slope of pleasure during exercise from negative to positive on pleasure and enjoyment, remembered pleasure, and forecasted pleasure. Forty-six adults were randomly assigned to a 15-min bout of recumbent cycling of either increasing intensity (0–120% of watts corresponding to the ventilatory threshold) or decreasing intensity (120–0%). Ramping intensity down, thereby eliciting apositive slope of pleasure during exercise, improved postexercise pleasure and enjoyment, remembered pleasure, and forecasted pleasure. The slope of pleasure accounted for 35–46% of the variance in remembered and forecasted pleasure from 15 min to 7 days postexercise. Ramping intensity down makes it possible to combine exposure to vigorous and moderate intensities with a pleasant affective experience.

majority of them included judo 9 and Olympic wrestling 10 fighters with no previous studies including karate athletes. Thus, in the light of all this, this research aims at assessing the discriminative ability of several fitness dimensions and anthropometric attributes for forecasting competitive success

having similar mean affective responses during exercise, the decreasing intensity group reported more positive postexercise pleasure, remembered pleasure, forecasted pleasure, and enjoyment of exercise. Based upon the contributions of Focht et al. ( 2015 ), Greene and Petruzzello ( 2015 ), and Zenko et

, & Lavigne, 2009 , Study 2). Finally, some scientists have begun to explore the role of passion in the use of future temporal processes, such as affective forecasting. Wilson and Gilbert ( 2003 ) defined affective forecasting as the ability to predict how one will feel in a future situation. Their research

Using the linear regression of HR and VO 2 established during the graded exercise test, the expected HR while riding was forecast using the riding VO 2 and compared with the concurrently measured HR to determine offset.
