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…

Corres, Pablo; MartinezAguirre-Betolaza, Aitor; Fryer, Simon M.; Gorostegi-Anduaga, Ilargi; Arratibel-Imaz, Iñaki; Aispuru, G. Rodrigo; Maldonado-Martín, Sara – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: To determine whether improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), blood pressure (BP) and body composition previously seen after a 16-week exercise intervention (POST) with hypocaloric diet are maintained following six months (6M) of unsupervised exercise time. Methods: Overweight/obese, physically inactive participants with primary…

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…

Julio, Ursula F.; Panissa, Valéria L. G.; Cury, Rubiana L.; Agostinho, Marcus F.; Esteves, João V. D. C.; Franchini, Emerson – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: This study compared the energy system contributions and relationship between mechanical and energy system variables in upper and lower body Wingate tests (WAnT) in judo athletes. Method: Eleven male judo athletes (18 ± 1 years, 174.3 ± 5.3 cm, 72.6 ± 9.9 kg, 11.8 ± 1.7% body fat) attended two laboratory sessions to perform two WAnT (upper…

Purpose: This study aims to analyze changes in Maximum Inspiratory Pressure (MIP), lung function, cardiorespiratory fitness, and blood pressure, in 10 healthy active elderly women, following 7 weeks of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) combined with a multicomponent training program (MCTP). The association among these health parameters, their…

Easley, Elizabeth A.; Black, W. Scott; Bailey, Alison L.; Lennie, Terry A.; Sims, Wilma J.; Clasey, Jody L. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine differences in heart rate recovery (HRRec) and oxygen consumption recovery (VO2 recovery) between young healthy-weight children and children with obesity following a maximal volitional graded exercise test (GXTmax). Method: Twenty healthy-weight children and 13 children with obesity completed body…

Dale, Julian; Glaister, Mark – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: This study investigated the existence of the oxygen uptake (VO[subscript 2]) overshoot and the effects of exercise intensity and fitness status on the response during moderate-intensity exercise. Methods: Twelve "high-fitness" (M[subscript age] = 26 ± 5 years; M[subscript height] = 184.1 ± 5.4 cm; M[subscript body mass] =…

Nettlefold, Lindsay; Naylor, P. J.; Warburton, Darren E. R.; Bredin, Shannon S. D.; Race, Douglas; McKay, Heather A. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2016
Purpose: Patterns of physical activity (PA) and sedentary time, including volume of bouted activity, are important health indicators. However, the effect of accelerometer epoch length on measurement of these patterns and associations with health outcomes in children remain unknown. Method: We measured activity patterns in 308 children (52% girls,…

Finn, Kevin J.; Saint-Maurice, Pedro F.; Karsai, István; Ihász, Ferenc; Csányi, Tamás – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2015
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to test the convergent validity of Omron 306 using Biospace InBody 720. Method: A total of 267 participants (145 boys; aged 10.4-17.9 years) completed testing during a single session. Each measure provided percent body fat (%BF), while the InBody 720 included fat-free mass (FFM). The validity was examined…

Malina, Robert M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2014
Growth, maturation, and development dominate the daily lives of children and adolescents for approximately the first 2 decades of life. Growth and maturation are biological processes, while development is largely a behavioral process. The 3 processes occur simultaneously and interact. They can be influenced by physical activity and also can…

Niederer, Iris; Kriemler, Susi; Zahner, Lukas; Burgi, Flavia; Ebenegger, Vincent; Marques- Vidal, Pedro; Puder, Jardena J. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2012
In the Ballabeina study, we investigated age- and BMI-group-related differences in aerobic fitness (20 m shuttle run), agility (obstacle course), dynamic (balance beam) and static balance (balance platform), and physical activity (PA, accelerometers) in 613 children (M age = 5.1 years, SD = 0.6). Normal weight (NW) children performed better than…
