Attentional strategies and their relationship with perceived exertion and flow [electronic resource] /

by Connolly, Cathleen T.

Abstract (Summary)
ABSTRACT: A study was designed to explore a proposed conceptual scheme linking the concepts of perceived exertion, flow, and the attention strategies of association and dissociation. The purpose of the current study was to: 1) examine whether attention allocation would vary as a function of perceived effort, 2) examine if flow would vary as a function of attention allocation, and 3) examine if flow would vary as a function of perceived effort. Sixty high school and collegiate rowers were recruited to participant in the rowing ergometer task. Participants were divided into 30 experienced (15 males and 15 females) and 30 novice rowers (15 males and 15 females) based on years of experience.
