The Effect of personality on post-exercise recovery from treadmill running

The Effect of personality on post-exercise recovery from treadmill running

 

Claire Barwood is looking at personality and recovery.  Week 1 – VO2 max testing; Week 2 – based on 80% of your VO2 Max, two periods on the treadmill, using the recovery time in between to provide saliva samples and answering computer based personality questions, all whilst your heart rate is being monitored.

 

Background of the study

Personality varies from individual to individual in a number of ways. Personality can have an effect on our physiological and psychological responses in a number of different situations. For example, individuals with different personality traits show different psychological or hormonal responses to mental tests or mentally stressful situations. Some of the physiological and psychological measures that may change in these situations are also considered to be indicators of how well an individual recovers from physical exercise. Despite this, nothing is yet known about the way that personality can effect these measures following exercise. This study will therefore investigate the ways in which personality can affect the way that we recover from whole body treadmill-based running exercise.
