    • Authors: Mohnish Tundia, Dhara Thakrar
      Pages: 1 - 7
      Abstract: Introduction: Adolescence is marked as a critical period of human life because of the rapid physical and sexual growth. Technological advances in recent decades have increased the interaction of adolescents with screen-based technologies. The adolescents have the unhealthiest diets of all age groups, and most adolescents do not meet the national guidelines for physical activity.
      Objectives: To assess physical activity, dietary pattern and screen time among urban adolescents and to find out association of Screen Time with different variables. Methods: A cross sectional study carried out in Udaipur, Rajasthan with prior permission from ethical committee. The study included 250 adolescents (10 to 19 years) selected by multistage sampling method. The Leisure Time Exercise Questionnaire of Godin and Shephard was used to find out weekly Physical Activity score. Eating habits were investigated using self-administered questionnaire in which we asked different questions about the food consumed by adolescents in a week. A Screen Time of ≥2 hours/ day was categorized as high sedentary behaviour, whereas a Screen Time <2 hours/ day was categorized as low sedentary behavior. Results: In current study prevalence of High Screen Time and unhealthy diet was around 83% and 60% respectively. Around 25% had habit of taking breakfast regularly while less than 30% were taking meal without fail. Screen Time found to be associated significantly with physical activity p < 0.01, gender (p = 0.01) and diet p < 0.01. Conclusion: Screen Time was found to be associated significantly with physical activity, gender and type of diet, whereas it has no role to play with phases of adolescence.

  • Getting athletes back in the game

    • Authors: Denis Arsovski, Erblin Domazeti, Tanja Jovanovska, Gordana Ristevska-Dimitrovska
      Pages: 8 - 17
      Abstract: Movement is an essential characteristic that has developed over the course of human evolution. With the inclusion of various populations in sports activities, sports have become an important part of people’s daily lives. Knee injuries are common among athletes, with knee joint being the most vulnerable to various injuries. Knee injuries require appropriate treatment to allow the athlete to return to their sports activities. Additionally, this study aimed to increase awareness of the importance of preventing knee injuries in sports and to highlight the potential impact of such injuries on an athlete’s ability to participate in their sport.
      A cross-sectional study was conducted to evaluate the functional outcomes of athletes with knee injuries. The study included 38 patients with knee injuries (ACL, meniscal injuries, collateral ligament injuries) out of which 21 were physically active athletes, 9 were not, but they were athletes who were not involved in sports at the time of the testing and 8 were recreational athletes. The majority of respondents (76%) reported that they sustained the injury during sports activities. Knee pain was reported as at least once a week by most respondents.
      The study highlights the importance of proper knee injury prevention measures during sports activities and the need for prompt and effective rehabilitation for those who do suffer injuries. Overall, these findings have important implications for the treatment and management of knee injuries among athletes and individuals seeking to maintain an active lifestyle.

  • Review: Józef Węglarz, [Physical Education in Stories. Between Theory
           and Practice], Oficyna Wydawnicza “Impuls”, Kraków 2021

    • Authors: Eligiusz Madejski
      Pages: 22 - 23
      Abstract: The reviewed book is included in the reading list showing the problems of school physical education and looking for their effective solution.
      The preparation of such a study consists, as Maciej Demel (1973, p. 7) wrote, ‘in critically attacking the present, overcoming outdated and harmful traditions, undermining authorities, (...) constant anxiety and searching, simultaneous penetration of the current state, its origins and prospects.’
      The author has prepared the book in a slightly different formula. He presented his anxiety about the future of physical education in stories, which gives the work originality. Józef Węglarz can be counted among the few authors who subjectively, with a bit of sarcasm and humor, reveal the weaknesses of physical education. At the same time, using many years of experience, the author suggests how to solve a given problem…
