Scott, Lauren; Shen, Bo; Price, Alanna; Centeio, Erin – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: To identify the role of content specificity in moderating situational interest and its relationship with physical activity (PA), we examined the between- and within-content relations of situational interest and PA in an urban elementary physical education context using fitness and basketball as comparative contents. Method: Fourth and…

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…

Li, Youfa; Wang, Sijia; Yu, Yong; Wu, Lili; Shi, Yutong; Zhang, Michelle; Wu, Xinwei; Ma, Xiao – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Physical education (PE) in school provides opportunities for physical activity (PA) engagement and reportedly results in improved health-related fitness. This study explored the underlying correlations between PE and activity-related healthy lifestyle practices with current level of cardiorespiratory fitness. Methods: A total of 13,138…

Leicht, Anthony S.; Fox, Jordan; Connor, Jonathan; Sargent, Charli; Sinclair, Wade; Stanton, Robert; Scanlan, Aaron – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Match activity demands of basketball players have been well reported but little exists in terms of quantifying the demands encountered by referees during match-play. Potential differences between referees and players may identify different fitness capacities and subsequent need for different training regimes. Purpose: The aims of this brief report…
