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,…

Araújo, Jaqueline A.; Queiroz, Marilene G.; Dias, André R. L.; Sousa, Laila C. J. L.; Arsa, Gisela; Cambri, Lucieli T. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
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…

Lins-Filho, Ozeas L.; Santos, Tony M.; Ritti-Dias, Raphael M.; Damasceno, Vinícius O.; Ferreira, Daniela K. S. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
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…

Ammar, Achraf; Riemann, Bryan L.; Trabelsi, Khaled; Blaumann, Marcel; Abdelkarim, Osama; Chtourou, Hamdi; Driss, Tarak; Hökelmann, Anita – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The aim of this study was to examine the effect of 3- vs. 2-minute inter maximal-repetition rest period (IMRRP) on maintaining jerk technical efficiency and power production during two successive maximal repetitions of Clean & Jerk (C&J). Methods: In a randomized, within subject, repeated measures design, nine elite-weightlifters…

Gil-Rey, Erreka; Maldonado-Martín, Sara; Gorostiaga, Esteban M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the widely used accelerometer activity cut-points derived from the absolute moderate intensity recommendation (3-6 METs), with relative intensity cut-points according to maximal cardiorespiratory fitness (46%-63% VO[subscript 2max]) and to individual lactate thresholds (LT1 and LT2) in postmenopausal…

Dokumaci, Bircan; Hazir, Tahir – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: This study investigated the effects of the menstrual cycle on running economy (RE). Method: Eleven eumenorrheic female athletes (mean age: 21.18 [plus or minus] 3.65 years, height: 170.2 [plus or minus] 6.6 cm, VO[subscript 2]max: 49.25 [plus or minus] 9.15 mL[middle dot]kg[superscript -1][middle dot]min[superscript -1], and menstrual…

Tamura, Kosuke; Wilson, Jeffrey S.; Goldfeld, Keith; Puett, Robin C.; Klenosky, David B.; Harper, William A.; Troped, Philip J. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Most built environment studies have quantified characteristics of the areas around participants' homes. However, the environmental exposures for physical activity (PA) are spatially dynamic rather than static. Thus, merged accelerometer and global positioning system (GPS) data were utilized to estimate associations between the built…

Canabrava, Karina L. R.; Faria, Fernanda R.; de Lima, Jorge R. P.; Guedes, Dartagnan P.; Amorim, Paulo R. S. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: This study aimed to compare the energy expenditure and intensity of active video games to that of treadmill walking in children and adolescents. Method: Seventy-two boys and girls (aged 8-13 years) were recruited from local public schools. Energy expenditure and heart rate were measured during rest, during 3-km/hr, 4-km/hr, and 5-km/hr…

Robinson, Leah E.; Palmer, Kara K.; Webster, E. Kipling; Logan, Samuel W.; Chinn, Katherine M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: This feasibility study compared the effects of 2 movement programs, traditional and mastery climate (i.e., the Children's Health Activity Motor Program [CHAMP]), on lesson context and children's physical activity (PA) levels. A secondary aim was to examine sex differences in PA levels in both programs. Method: Seventy-two preschoolers…

Coolkens, Rosalie; Ward, Phillip; Seghers, Jan; Iserbyt, Peter – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: To investigate the effect of generalization of engagement in parkour from physical education (PE) to organized and supervised recess on voluntary participation and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA). Method: Children received a 6-day parkour unit in PE and every two lessons they could voluntarily participate in 20-min parkour…

Brusseau, Timothy A.; Burns, Ryan D. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the predictive relationship among physical activity, health-related fitness, and on-task classroom behavior in children using a discriminant function analysis. Method: Participants were a convenience sample of children (N = 533; M[subscript age] = 8.8 ± 1.9 years) recruited from 77 1st- through…

Harada, Kazuhiro; Masumoto, Kouhei; Kondo, Narihiko – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: Although it has been proposed that 1 spouse's health behaviors might correlate with the other spouse's health behavior among married couples, few studies have focused on sedentary behavior. This study examined whether objectively measured sedentary behavior and physical activity are correlated with each other and whether attachment to…

Erwin, Heather; Brusseau, Timothy A.; Carson, Russell; Hodge, Samuel; Kang, Minsoo – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
SHAPE America -- Society of Health and Physical Educators has targeted youth physical activity (PA) as 1 of its 4 goals within the 50 Million Strong[TM] campaign. Only 27.1% of youth met the target of all students (preK-12) participating in at least 60 min of PA that increases their heart rate enough to breathe hard at least some of the time for…
