However, for some, excessive exercise can develop into an addiction that is detrimental to their health. In the present study, we examine potential personal (self-control, self-concordance) and social (social support) resources that we assume to be related to exercise dependence. (2) Methods: One hundred and forty athletes from different endurance sports participated in an online survey. Exercise dependence, self-control, self-concordance, and social support were assessed using questionnaires that are well-established in health and sport psychology. Additionally, further sport-relevant and demographic variables were assessed. (3) Results: Correlational analyses supported our hypotheses that exercise dependence is negatively correlated with the personal resources trait, state self-control, and self-concordance. Social support, however, was not significantly correlated with exercise dependence. Furthermore, the results of a mediation analysis revealed that the relationship between both personal traits (self-control, self-concordance) and exercise dependence was mediated by state self-control. (4) Conclusions: Our results indicate that trait self-control and self-concordance might be important personal resources that protect against exercise dependence by making state self-control available.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Zimanyi, Zsuzsanna</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Wolff, Wanja</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Schüler, Julia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2021</dcterms:issued> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/53145/1/Zimanyi_2-1h7vu0fglfy108.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Schüler, Julia</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Zimanyi, Zsuzsanna</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-03-16T07:24:07Z</dcterms:available> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/35"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Too Much of a Good Thing? : Exercise Dependence in Endurance Athletes : Relationships with Personal and Social Resources</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/53145/1/Zimanyi_2-1h7vu0fglfy108.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Wolff, Wanja</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/53145"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-03-16T07:24:07Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/35"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
