Abstract
Background: Exercise cognitions and beliefs are key associates of exercise behaviour. Self-talk is an intrapersonal communication system that may be a useful technique for studying exercise-related beliefs in pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) patients. The purpose of this research was to determine the relationships for self-talk, social-cognition, and clinical indicators in PR. Method: The following measures were assessed in 78 PR patients during the first two weeks of PR: the 6-minute walk test, St. George’s Respiratory Questionnaire, Exercise Self-talk Questionnaire, Self-talk Function Scale, and Social-Cognitive Questionnaire. Results: Moderate correlations were found for self-talk, cognition, and clinical indicator relationships that varied by gender. Self-efficacy, perceived severity, perceived difficulty, and personal physical evaluation self-talk had the strongest relationships to cognitions, and clinical indicators. Conclusions: Self-talk is related to social-cognitive constructs, health status, lung function, and functional exercise capacity in PR patients. Gender differences may be due to functional ability differences or gendered socialization experiences.
