Berger, Bonnie G.; Owen, David R.
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v59 n2 p148-59 Jun 1988
Differences in mood before and after class of college students taking different courses (swimming, body conditioning, hatha yoga, fencing exercise, and lecture) were analyzed using the Profile Mood States and the State Anxiety Inventory. Results suggest that courses which meet four requirements involving aerobics, noncompetitiveness, predictability, and repetitiveness may reduce stress. (Author/CB)
