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…

Hibbing, Paul R.; Bassett, David R.; Crouter, Scott E. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: To assess changes in criterion validity when modifying cut-points for use in different epoch lengths. Method: Simulated free-living data came from 42 adolescents (2-hr each) and 29 adults (6-hr each) wearing a hip-worn accelerometer and portable indirect calorimeter (Cosmed K4b[superscript 2]). K4b[superscript 2] data were classified as…

Roure, Cédric; Pasco, Denis; Benoît, Nicolas; Deldicque, Louise – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: Despite the benefits of commercial exergames, in the practical application, players might not be spending sufficient time in physical activity levels compatible with health outcomes. We adopted a design-based exergame approach to build a bike exergame called Greedy Rabbit. The purpose of this study was to identify the impact of Greedy…

Çakir-Atabek, Hayriye; Aygün, Cihan; Dokumaci, Bircan – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The current study aimed to investigate the exercise intensity and exercise characteristics of active video games (AVGs) by measuring various physiological responses, and to test whether AVGs can be used in components of training in sports branches. Methods: Twenty-two male athletes with good aerobic fitness level (age = 20.6 [plus or…

Wang, Yubing; Chen, Ang – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
One primary goal of physical education (PE) is to promote students' lifelong physical activity (PA). This goal implies that PE should not only improve students' PA in PE classes but also promote their PA outside of the school known as the "PE effect." Purpose: In this study, we proposed a two-pathway model of the "PE effect"…

Umstattd Meyer, M. Renée; Prochnow, Tyler; Bridges, Christina N.; Carlton, Troy; Wilkins, Emily; Arnold, Kimberly T.; McClendon, Megan E.; McKenzie, Thomas; Pollack Porter, Keshia M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The System for Observing Play and Recreation in Communities (SOPARC) is a valid, reliable method for understanding how people engage in physical activity (PA) in various permanent settings (e.g., parks) and contexts. However, its utility, reliability, and validity in temporary spaces has not been examined. Temporary spaces can provide PA…

Marttinen, Risto; Daum, David; Fredrick, Ray N.; Santiago, Joshua; Silverman, Stephen – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: This study sought to explore students' experiences of the Fitness Integrated with Technology (F.I.T.) unit and of their perceptions of using technology in physical education. Method: This manuscript is part of a larger mixed-methods study that measured student attitude and physical activity (PA) levels of 221 students in sixth, seventh,…

Akinci, Buket; Yeldan, Ipek; Celik, Selda; Satman, Ilhan – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: This study aimed (1) to compare physical activity (PA) indicators, metabolic biomarkers, and comorbidity, (2) to investigate the relationship between PA indicators and metabolic biomarkers, comorbidity and (3) to identify barriers to PA in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) who are using oral hypoglycaemic agent (OHA) or combined OHA…

Filanowski, Patrick M.; Iannotti, Ronald J.; Crouter, Scott E.; Vermeulen, Anne; Schmidt, Ellyn M.; Hoffman, Jessica A.; Castaneda-Sceppa, Carmen; Milliken, Laurie A. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine whether structured physical activity (PA) in a family-based community exercise program affects PA of young children and parents. Method: Twenty-two children (mean ± SD; age, 4.9 ± 2.1 years) and their parents (age, 34.3 ± 7.6 years) participated in unstructured PA sessions followed by either short-…

Charkamyani, Forouzan; Hosseinkhani, Azadeh; Neisani Samani, Leila; Khedmat, Leila – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The role of a structured program of exercise training on the low-risk pregnancy in Iranian women undergoing "in vitro" fertilization (IVF) based on the reduction of gestational diabetes was examined. Method: A comparative quasi-experimental clinical trial with 170 IVF-pregnant women in two intervention and control groups was…

Kahan, David; Lorenz, Kent Arnold – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Given the unequal distribution of physical activity (PA) opportunities across middle schools, alternative options for promoting it should be explored. Faith-based schools are positioned to offer religious-themed PA interventions, yet few have been reported. We replicated previous research by investigating the effects of the Physical…

Pind, Rasmus; Mooses, Kerli; Suvi, Silva; Purge, Priit; Viru, Mehis; Pehme, Ando; Kaasik, Priit; Mooses, Martin – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences in metabolic responses between the track and the treadmill (1% inclination) running. The latter is recommended for use in laboratory settings to mimic outdoor running. Method: Seventeen male endurance athletes (mean 25.8, s = 3.8 years) performed 4-min running bouts on an indoor…

Sacko, Ryan; McIver, Kerry; Brazendale, Keith; Pfeifer, Craig; Brian, Ali; Nesbitt, Danielle; Stodden, David F. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: To compare children's energy expenditure (EE) levels during object projection skill performance (OPSP; e.g., kicking, throwing, striking) as assessed by hip- and wrist-worn accelerometers. Method: Forty-two children (female [rho]= 20, M[subscript age] = 8.1[plus or minus]0.8 years) performed three, nine-minute sessions of kicking,…

Purpose: To evaluate whether excess body mass influences the heart rate variability (HRV) indexes at rest, and to correlate adiposity indicators and the aerobic fitness with cardiac autonomic variables in metabolically healthy young adults. Method: In all, 41 untrained males (M[subscript age] = 21.80, SD = 2.14 years), 14 normal weight…

Background: Self-selected exercise intensity (SSEI) promotes higher affect (pleasure) during exercise, but its reliability is still unclear. Purpose: to evaluate the test-retest reliability and the minimum detectable change of the perceptive and physiological responses in two sessions of SSEI on treadmill in elderly women. Method: Twenty elderly…
