The authors investigated the effect of chronic exercise on feelings of energy and fatigue using meta-analytic techniques. Chronic exercise increased feelings of energy and lessened feelings of fatigue compared with control conditions by a mean effect delta of 0.37. The effect varied according to the presence or absence of a placebo control or whether chronic exercise was completed alone or in combination with an additional therapy. Investigations that used a placebo control and examined chronic… Expand
A Randomized Controlled Trial of the Effect of Aerobic Exercise Training on Feelings of Energy and Fatigue in Sedentary Young Adults with Persistent Fatigue
TLDR
Six weeks of low and moderate exercise training performed by sedentary adults without a well-defined medical condition or an unexplained fatigue syndrome but reporting persistent feelings of fatigue resulted in similarly beneficial effects on feelings of energy. Expand
The effect of acute resistance exercise on feelings of energy and fatigue
TLDR
It is unclear whether this effect is a placebo effect because, while it did not differ from the placebo condition, it cannot rule out that resistance exercise at a wide range of intensities produces increased feelings of energy. Expand

TLDR
This review quantifies the potential benefit of cardiac rehabilitation exercise programs on feelings of energy and fatigue, and suggests that cardiac rehabilitation researchers and practitioners may benefit from examining, and perhaps even focusing on, feelings ofEnergy and fatigue as an important outcome variable.

Effects of cycling exercise on vigor, fatigue, and electroencephalographic activity among young adults who report persistent fatigue.
TLDR
Feelings of vigor were higher after both low- and moderate-intensity exercise during Weeks 1, 3, and 6 compared to a control condition, and EEG changes after exercise are causally linked with mood. Expand
The effects of a less active generation on both physical and mental health in modern society
TLDR
Exercise interventions as a means of reducing levels of depression and anxiety and the effects of exercise on feelings of energy and fatigue are reviewed. Expand
Predictors of feelings of energy differ from predictors of fatigue
ABSTRACT Background: Studies examining energy and fatigue as a bipolar mood have focused on a single variable, usually fatigue, when studying these moods. Objective: The purpose of this study was toExpand

The effect of exercise training on anxiety symptoms among patients: a systematic review.
TLDR
Exercise training reduces anxiety symptoms among sedentary patients who have a chronic illness and whether selected variables of theoretical or practical importance moderate the effect is determined. Expand
Outcomes of an exercise program for pain and fatigue management in adults with cerebral palsy

Chronic physical activity and feelings of energy and fatigue.
TLDR
This brief review summarizes key epidemiological and experimental evidence concerning relationships between chronic physical activity and feelings of energy (vigor, vitality) and fatigue among sedentary and fatigued individuals. Expand
Physical Activity and Feelings of Energy and Fatigue
  • T. Puetz
  • Psychology, Medicine

  • 2006
TLDR
There was agreement among the studies suggesting a strong, consistent, temporally appropriate dose-response relationship between physical activity and feelings of energy and fatigue, which is sufficiently strong to justify better controlled prospective cohort studies and randomised controlled trials. Expand
Psychological effects of exercise: a randomized cross-over trial.
TLDR
It is concluded that beginning an exercise program, in itself, produces minimal psychological benefits and that other conditions, e.g. the presence of emotional problems, socialization along with exercise, or a training effect must be present for exercise to produce psychological benefits. Expand
Fatigue mediates the effects of exercise on quality of life
TLDR
The results suggest that exercise may affect quality of life and that this effect may be mediated by the effects of exercise on fatigue, which is a common side effect of cancer treatment. Expand
Physical activity dose-response effects on outcomes of depression and anxiety.
TLDR
There is little evidence for dose-response effects of physical activity and exercise, though this is largely because of a lack of studies rather than a lacks of evidence. Expand
The effects of exercise training on mood and perceived coping ability in anxious adults from the general population.
TLDR
The moderate exercise programme led to significant improvements in aerobic fitness, and was associated with significantly greater reductions in tension-anxiety, depression and other moods than the attention-placebo condition, together with increases in perceived ability to cope with stress. Expand
Effects of rehabilitation exercise programmes on anxiety and depression in coronary patients: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is concluded that exercise programmes should not be considered the only treatment for emotional disturbances in coronary patients, but that they can be psychologically beneficial as an additional treatment component. Expand
Psychological Changes Accompany Aerobic Exercise in Healthy Middle‐Aged Adults
TLDR
Results document the potential utility of regular aerobic exercise in promoting psychological health in normal adults and show that the exercisers exhibited less state and trait anxiety, less tension, depression, and fatigue, and more vigor than the controls. Expand
