In a sample of 76 students (56 women, 20 men) from an upper division psychology class at this large university, men's and women's scores on the Anger subscale of the Profile of Mood States and self-reported exercise (-.34 and -.39, respectively) were significantly correlated. Men also reported exercising for longer periods, while women reported exercising more intensely. Researchers might well examine behavioral measures of anger and exercise over an extended period of time in an experimental design.
