Abstract Regular exercise improves mood and helps to relieve depression. Exercise increases BDNF, b-endorphins, regulates HPTA axis and 5HT, decreases cortisol, increases testosterone and growth hormone. Higher intensity anabolic and perhaps aerobic training appear to have greater antidepressant effects. Exercise programmes should be tailored to the individual's needs.
