PREDICTORS OF DRIVE FOR MUSCULARITY AMONG ADOLESCENT MALES
Languages of publication
The aim of the current study was to explore body satisfaction, peer pressure and body shame as predictors of drive for muscularity among adolescent males. A total of 213 adolescent males completed the questionnaires assessing body satisfaction, peer pressure, body shame and drive for muscularity. The results indicated that drive for muscularity was predicted by body shame and body satisfaction. Participants’ BMI, age, and experienced level of peer pressure did not play a role as significant predictors of drive for muscularity. Future longitudinal research should focus on clarifying the role of body shame in the development of drive for muscularity and extreme body changing behaviours.
