The Influence Of Free-Living Activity And Inactivity On Health Outcomes And Responsiveness To Exercise Training, Sarah Kozey Keadle May 2012

The Influence Of Free-Living Activity And Inactivity On Health Outcomes And Responsiveness To Exercise Training, Sarah Kozey Keadle

Open Access Dissertations

On average, starting an exercise training program decreases one’s risk for chronic disease. However, there is remarkable individual variability in physiologic responses to exercise training. The activity and inactivity during the remaining 95% of the day (when the individual is not training) is rarely considered. The overall objective of this dissertation was to apply validated sedentary behavior (SB) and physical activity (PA) measurement techniques during an exercise training study to determine if time spent in SB and PA outside of training influences the physiological response to training. Twenty subjects participated in a pilot study to determine the feasibility of ...


"A"-Kids: Activity Kcal Intervention Daily Study. Effects Of 100-Kcal Daily Energy Expenditure On Total Moderate-To-Vigorous Physical Activity In 3rd Grade Children, Cheryl A. Howe Feb 2010

"A"-Kids: Activity Kcal Intervention Daily Study. Effects Of 100-Kcal Daily Energy Expenditure On Total Moderate-To-Vigorous Physical Activity In 3rd Grade Children, Cheryl A. Howe

Open Access Dissertations

A selection of common children’s games were measured in a laboratory-based study to be enjoyable and to elicit sufficient physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE) in 3rd grade children to combat the purported chronic energy surplus of childhood obesity (~100 kcal.day-1). PAEE during the games was similar for boys and girls, yet overweight children expended greater PAEE relative to body weight than healthy weight children. During a subsequent simulated recess program, the enjoyment declined over the 10-session program with no significant decline in PAEE. Using the enjoyable games of known energy cost in a structured recess program for 9 ...
