    This article looks at a fascinating area of sport—exercise dependence—focusing on a group of athletes well known for their devotion to training—bodybuilders. The relation of various areas within exercise dependence (social dependency, training dependency, and mastery) are well demonstrated in this study of experienced and inexperienced bodybuilders and experienced weightlifters. The results may have potential for identifying factors of concern with bodybuilders and potentially addressing these as needed.
