This study examines the effects of resistance and aerobic exercise on Social Physique Anxiety (SPA) and Physical Self-Efficacy (PSE) over a 3-week time period. Participants (n=44, mean age=21.11 yesrs) were randomly assigned to one of four treatment groups: Aerobic, Resistance, Combination, or Control. Measures of SPA and PSE were taken as baseline and after the 3-week period. Two-way ANOVAs revealed a singificant difference in SPA, confidence, and ability over time across all groups.
