The Influence of Gender on Resistance Training Adherence in Division III Athletics

This presentation will examine the influence of gender on resistance training adherence in division III female athletes. The limited research in this area, including original data that I have collected, will be supplemented with anecdotal evidence and research for the larger area of exercise adherence. Then, based on various theoretical models, including social-cognitive theory, strategies to promote resistance training adherence in female athletes will be presented. All are welcome to attend!
