    • Physical Activity And Physical Fitness For School Students
    • Outline • Physical activity VS. physical fitness • Benefits and Advantages • Measurement of physical activity • Measurement of physical fitness • Physical Fitness among Secondary School Students in Central Zone, Malaysia: MyHEARTS
    • Physical Activity1 • Any movement produced by skeletal muscles that results in energy expenditure • Leisure, occupational, exercise • Exercise is a subset of physical activity • planned, structured, and repetitive →aims to maintain or improve one component of fitness
    • Physical Fitness1 • the ability to carry out daily tasks with vigour and alertness, without undue fatigue and with ample energy to enjoy leisure- time pursuits and to meet unforeseen emergencies
    • Components of Physical Fitness •Cardio-respiratory fitness •Muscular endurance •Muscular strength •Body composition •Flexibility
    • Benefits of Physical Activity and Fitness in Children Parameters Study Group Results Body fat 2-6 Cross sectional & longitudinal studies - Overweight Active VS Overweight Sedentary High levels physical activity → Less Adiposity Metabolic Syndrome7-9 Cross sectional & RCT - Obese and Non-obese Moderate to vigorous exercise → Improves TG, fasting insulin, adiposity Lipid Profile9-11 Intervention - RCT & Non RCT Weak beneficial of regular moderate to vigorous physical activity • ↑ HDL-C • ↓ TG levels, • No changes on total cholesterol & LDL-C
    • Parameters Study Group Results Blood Pressure12-16 Young HPT • Aerobic activities positive effect • Add in strength training prevents return to pre intervention levels • Strength training alone has no effect Mental Health17-22 Cross sectional and quasi- experimental design (causality?) ↑measures of anxiety and depression score Academic results23-27 Cross sectional & quasi- experimental studies • ↑ academic performances, memory, concentration, classroom behaviour, & intellectual performances
    • Parameters Study Group Results Strength 28-29 Longitudinal studies ↑ upper body strength Bone Mineral30-35 Case studies & retrospective studies • Active VS inactive, elite young athletes VS less active youth ↑ bone mineral content, bone mineral density, and bone mineral apparent density
    • Malaysian Children & Adolescent • Aboshkair, K.A. et all (2012)36 – cross sectional study, 918 participants from 38 secondary schools in Selangor • all fitness assessment tests (push up, sit-up, sit-and-reach & 20m shuttle run) performances negatively associated with BMI for both genders • Rengasamy, S. (2012)37 – quasi-experimental school based intervention program (girls school) • After 10 weeks exercise program (2x/week) – the intervention group significantly improve their aerobic and flexibility; no significance in muscular strength between groups • Zalilah, M.S. et al (2006)38 – cross sectional study, 6555 secondary school • No significant difference of time spent for physical activity among underweight, normal and overweight
    • Physical Activity Measurement • Questionnaire • Accelerometer
    • QUESTIONNAIRE • Physical Activity Questionnaire (PAQ): • For Older Children (PAQ-C)39 → ages 8-14 • For Adolescents (PAQ-A)39 →ages 14-20 • Self-administered, 7-day recall questionnaires • Evaluates the sports, leisure activities, and games performed throughout school days, evenings, and weekends
    • STRENGTH i. High validity and moderate reliability ii. Cost and time efficient iii. Easy to administer for mass population iv. Measures general physical activity levels of children to adolescent
    • LIMITATIONS i. No estimation of energy expenditure. ii. No differential of activity intensities → a summary activity score iii. Only appropriate when used during the school year iv. Recall bias
    • • Scoring • A score of 1 indicates low physical activity, whereas a score of 5 indicates high physical activity
    • ACCELEROMETER • Objectively measure activities and predicts energy expenditure • Using body worn sensors
    • ACCELEROMETER • Provides objective data • Captures “real-time” intensity, duration, and can derive frequency of bouts • leisure, occupational, sports/ exercise, sitting, lying down, sleeping • Can monitor multiple days with low burden • Relatively small and lightweight
    • ACCELEROMETER • Expensive
    • Accelerometer
    • Physical Fitness Measurement • Laboratory Exercise Testing • Field testing
    • Laboratory Exercise Testing • Laboratory setting • Skilled technician • Measure of maximal O2 uptake (VO2 max)
    • Equipments • Treadmill (protocols – Bruce, Balke-Ware, Naughton) • Cycle ergometer (Astrand protocol) • Automated BP monitoring • ECG recording system • Ventilation mask – measure O2 consumption & CO2 production
    • On Field Testing • Walk test • Shuttle test • Step test
    • Walk Test • Walk at their maximal effort • Divided into 2 • Time based : 2 min, 6 min, 12 min • primary outcome measure is distance • walk as far as possible in the specified time • Distance based : 400m walk test, 1 mile walk test • primary outcome measure is time • Walk at required distance as quickly as possible at a pace that they can maintain
    • Shuttle Test • Incremental exercise tests require children to walk or run at increasing speeds back and forth a 10-m or 20-m course (marked by cones) • Speed is increased and subsequent interval is shortened every minute and is controlled by audio signals played from a tape
    • • Test is terminated when the participant chooses to stop or when on 2 consecutive paced signals the patient is more than 1 m away from the closest marker • Divided into Shuttle walk test (10m) and shuttle run test (20m) • Participants motivation is a very important factor to achieve a valid test • Require a big space/venue/long corridor
    • Step Test • Participant step up and down from a platform/bench/stool • Participant maintain pace at a set stepping rate for a specified time period • Thus this test is relatively free of the variability associated with patient motivation • Primary outcome measure is post exercise heart rate
    • Step Test • Relatively easy, simple, cheap and portable • Does not require as much space as other field test • Minimal expertise is needed • Stepping skill requires little practice • Equipment • Bench/stool/step box (vary in heights depending on protocol) • Stop Watch • Metronome (set pace stepping rate)
    • Step test • YMCA/Kasch Step test • One of the most widely used (Malaysia SEGAK : Standard Kecergasan Fizikal Kebangsaan) • Bench 30 cm , cadence of 96 beats per minute, total 3 minutes • Within 5 seconds following test , the child was seated and heart rate was palpated for 60 seconds via radial pulse. The number of beats per minute (BPM) was recorded.

    • Modified Harvard Step Test • This step test is one of the tests that categorizes the fitness level in children • Equipment 1.30 cm bench/stool 2.Stop watch 3.Metronome set at 120bpm 4.Finger pulse oximeter / Polar heart rate monitor → continuously heart rate monitoring
    • Modified Harvard Step Test 1.Using a stop watch and metronome, the child was asked to step onto (both feet) and off a stool/ bench 30 cm high for total of 5 minutes. 2.The student paced at 120 beats per minute 3.Students whose heart rates reached 200 beats per minute, who had difficulty in breathing, or who were unable to finish were stopped 4.Once the student has completed the step test or was stopped due to the above reasons stated in 3, the student quickly sits down on the bench and rest.
    • Modified Harvard Step Test 5. Heart rate is recorded at 0, 1, and 2 minutes post exercise 6. Total exercise duration is recorded in seconds 7. Physical Fitness Score (PFS) is calculated by dividing the total time of exercise in seconds by the sum of three heart rate values measured at 0, 1 and 2 minutes post exercise
    • Physical Fitness Score <55 55-64 65-79 80-89 ≥90 Poor Low Average High Average Good Excellent
    • MyHEARTS • Malaysian Health and Adolescents Longitudinal Research Study (MyHEARTS) • Objective : • identify the trends of prevalence of non-communicable diseases’ risk factors among adolescents in Peninsular Malaysia • to determine how lifestyles in early adolescence influence development of chronic non-communicable disease in early adulthood
    • • Study area – conducted in the central zone of Peninsular Malaysia – 3 states : Perak, Selangor & KL • Cross sectional cohort study – form 1 (age 13), both male & female, studying government schools, understand and read BM

    • • Malaysian Association for Physical Education, Sports Science and Fitness (MAPESSF, 2008) : “..inactivity among Malaysian schoolchildren is due to the shortage in sports facilities, lack of opportunities for the children to be active, and lack of PE teachers in Malaysian schools,… together with an unsupportive school environment…”
    • Exercise Prescription for Children • Minimal amount of physical activity needed to achieve the various components of health-related fitness • ACSM recommendation : • F requency: At least 3–4 days per week and preferably daily. • I ntensity: Moderate (physical activity that noticeably increases breathing, sweating, and HR) to vigorous (physical activity that substantially increases breathing, sweating, and HR) intensity. • T ime: 30 min per day of moderate and 30 min per day of vigorous intensity to total 60 min per day of accumulated physical activity. • T ype: A variety of activities that are enjoyable and developmentally appropriate for the child or adolescent; these may include walking, active play/games, dance, sports, and muscle- and bone-strengthening activities.
