Tsuda, Emi; Goodway, Jacqueline D.; Famelia, Ruri; Brian, Ali – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: This study examined the extent to which fundamental motor skill competence (FMSC; locomotor and object control skill competence) and perceived physical competence (PPC) predicted physical activity levels and sedentary behaviors during free-play time at preschool. Method: A total of 72 children (girls n = 33, boys n = 39; M[subscript age]…

Vukovic, Marko; Kukic, Filip; Cvorovic, Aleksandar; Jankovic, Dunja; Prcic, Iva; Dopsaj, Milivoj – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: Leisure-time physical activity (LTPA) has always been very important for the maintenance and improvement of body composition. Thus, the aim of this study was to examine if the frequency and volume of LTPA (F-LTPA and V-LTPA) were related to indices of body composition in police officers. Method: A physical activity questionnaire was used…

Kern, Ben D.; Imagbe, Stacy; Bellar, David; Clemons, James – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
To promote student "physical literacy," physical educators must teach and assess health-related fitness content knowledge (HRFK) and model healthy lifestyles. Individual HRFK is associated with lifetime physical activity (PA) and each may precede/predict both teaching and assessing of student HRFK. Purpose: The purpose of this study was…
