Abstract : Moods of 9 males and 9 females were examined before and after 6 different weight lifting workouts, varied according to inter-set rest interval (1 vs. 3 min.), total work (low vs. high), and weight lifted (heavy for 5 reps. per set vs. light for 10 reps. per set). The Profile of Mood States was given 2 min. pre-, and 2 mins., 2 hrs., 24 hrs. and 48 hrs. post-workout. Higher subjective feelings of negative moods including tension, depression and fatigue resulted from high work, lower weight with higher reps. per set, and short inter-set rest period. Lighter weight with higher total work produced more tension and depression with 1 than 3 min. rest, probably due to physical fatigue. In contrast, a heavier weight with lower work produced more tension and depression with 3 than 1 min. rest, possibly because of impatience about 3 minute test periods when fatigue was minimal.
