Barnett, Fiona, and Spinks, Warwick (2008) Affective responses of postmenopausal women to an acute exercise bout. In: Proceedings of the 3rd Australian Association for Exercise and Sports Science Conference and the 5th Sports Dietitians Australia Update. From: 3rd Australian Association for Exercise and Sports Science Conference and the 5th Sports Dietitians Australia Update, 27-30 March 2008, Melbourne, VIC, Australia.
Weight gain and the associated increased risk of coronary artery disease are associated with the postmenopausal period (Shangold & Sherman, 1998). However, moderate intensity physical activity may be protective for postmenopausal women through attenuation of weight gain (Gaspard, Buicu & Creutz, 2001). Despite this evidence, many postmenopausal women do not engage in regular exercise. The affective responses to an acute exercise bout are thought to influence future exercise behaviour.
