The Additive Effects of Exercise and Self-efficacy on Anxiety and Social Physique Anxiety in Emerging Adults

This project intends to investigate the additive effects exercise and self-efficacy may have on anxiety, as well as the additive effects exercise and self-efficacy may have on social physique anxiety in emerging adults. These different components have been examined pairwise but never examined in combination in this particular population. The researcher hypothesizing that individuals with a higher self-efficacy and who exercise regularly are likely to be less anxious than individuals do one or neither of these things. The researcher also hypothesizing that these individuals with a higher self-efficacy and who exercise regularly will have less social physique anxiety. Participants complete four different questionnaires concerning exercise, self-efficacy, anxiety, and social physique anxiety. If the hypothesis is correct, there would be a need for further experimental research in this area. Findings could then be used to advance the psychosocial treatment of anxiety in emerging adults.
