An Exploration of the Drive for Muscularity in Adolescent Boys and Girls.
McCreary, Donald R.; Sasse, Doris K.
Journal of American College Health, v48 n6 p297-304 May 2000
Investigated the drive for muscularity among high school adolescents using the Drive for Muscularity Scale. Results indicated that the scale was reliable. High-drive students were mainly boys trying to gain weight and muscle mass. Drive related to poor self-esteem and higher depression levels among boys, but not girls. Drive for muscularity was relatively unrelated to drive for thinness. (SM)
