Relations of Strength Training to Body Image among a Sample of Female University Students.
Ahmed, Christine; Hilton, Wanda; Pituch, Keenan
Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, v16 n4 p645-48 Nov 2002
Evaluated college women enrolled in a strength training class before and after completion of the class, using a combination of physical fitness measures, to determine the relationship between strength training and body image. Strength training generally did not substantially change participants' weight, percentage of fat, or circumferences. Most women felt more toned up, better about themselves, more confident, healthier, and more positive about their body at the end of class. (SM)
