  • Body appreciation as a multifactorial construct in adolescent athletes and
           their athletic achievements

    • Authors: Isabel Rojas-Padilla, Iago Portela-Pino
      Pages: 560 - 569
      Abstract: Given the strong cultural and social messages that encourage men and women to feel dissatisfied with their bodies, the cases of affection are increasing, since the standards and stereotypes imposed by society are not always adequate when talking about health or are even so far from reality and encourage some people to attempt against their health and physical integrity for the mere fact of complying with them, and adolescent athletes are no strangers to this situation. This was a quantitative cross-sectional observational study with a participation of 354 adolescent athletes between 10 and 19 years of age, of whom 51.4% were male and 48.6% female. A sociodemographic survey and the Body Appreciation Scale were applied. The results showed a high level of body appreciation in the participants and significant relationships with the years of sports practice and the result of the last competition. To conclude, although this research found variables that can influence the level of body appreciation, it is important to investigate further and include other aspects such as relationships with peers, coaches, family members and social networks, since the feelings and thoughts of adolescent athletes about their bodies influence their mental health and consequently their sports performance.

  • Validity and reliability of the volleyball serve accuracy-test

    • Authors: Cicero Luciano Alves Costa, Nadia Cristina Valentini, Emanuel Moita do Nascimento, Herbert Ugrinowitsch
      Pages: 570 - 578
      Abstract: This study aimed to examine the content, face, and sensitive validity, and test-retest reliability of a volleyball overhand serve accuracy-test. Four experts – university professors evaluated the content validity; 50 volleyball coaches, teachers, and athletes were enrolled in the face validity. Thirty-three undergraduate students (18 experienced and 15 novices) participated in the study to assess the test capability to detect different performance levels. The sensitive validity was examined by comparing differences in the serving accuracy among experience levels using the t-test for independent samples. A cluster analysis (hierarchical cluster) was conducted using the between-groups linkage method and the Euclidean quadratic distance measure. The test-retest reliability was analysed using intraclass correlation coefficients and the standard error. Satisfactory results were found for experts’ agreement regarding the test’s accuracy and content validity. Face validity was adequate regarding clarity, pertinence, and applicability (78% to 86% of agreement). A high degree of test-retest reliability was observed for both novices (ICC = 0.81) and experienced (ICC = 0.84) participants; experienced group (p = .001) had higher means. The volleyball serve accuracy-test is a viable alternative to assess beginners’ performance in a teaching-learning context.

    • Authors: Cynthia Milagros Apaza Panca, Cynthia Harumy Watanabe Correa, Joyce Mamani Cornejo, Anthony Paul Távara Ramos, Ronald Adrián Girón Valenzuela, Angie Beatriz Ortiz Calopino, Alfredo Ivan Olaguivel Quisocala
      Pages: 579 - 599
      Abstract: Tourism activity in natural protected areas is increasing worldwide. These areas belong to the country's heritage and their natural conditions should be preserved, taking advantage of the resources and the sustainable use of the area. The general objective of the study was to analyse the perception of travel agencies and visitors to a natural protected area and the specific objectives were to determine the image of the natural protected area from the perspective of visitors and to learn about the travel agencies' perception of the natural protected area as a tourist destination for sport hunting and hiking. The study is a mixed approach, basic, non-experimental, descriptive, cross-sectional design. A probabilistic sampling by convenience and intentional was estimated, considering 100 visitors and 5 formal travel agencies in the city of Mancora with interest in providing tourist services to the protected natural area. The study found that 12% of the visitors agree that the area has an image of an ecological and restful place, a place for tourism activities such as trekking, sport hunting, hiking, bird watching, biking, and photography. On the other hand, travel agency representatives have little knowledge of the destination; however, they show interest in considering the destination as part of their tourism packages, given that there is evidence of potential demand because the destination is innovative and offers sports tourism practices.

    • Authors: Ayyala Haqqi Thoriq As-safa, I Dewa Made Aryananda Wijaya Kusuma, Imam Syafii, David Agus Prianto, Yanuar Alfan Triardhana, Bayu Agung Pramono
      Pages: 600 - 607
      Abstract: A training model that combines physicality and tactics is really needed in futsal. This study aims to analyse the effect of rotation play training with HIIT Protocol on the anaerobic abilities of amateur futsal players. This research uses an experimental method with a two-group pre-test and post-test design. The sample in this study consisted of 30 amateur futsal players with an age of 19.23 ± 0.57 years, height of 165.60 ± 5.63 cm, body mass of 59.17 ± 5.24 kg, and BMI of 21.60 ± 1.93. Samples were divided randomly into an experimental group (EG) and a control group (CG). Data analysis used a Paired Sample T-test and an Independent T-test with a significance level of .05 and used Cohen's ES to measure the magnitude of differences between groups. This study used the running anaerobic sprint test (RAST). The variables in RAST that will be analysed are Peak Power (W); Mean Power (W); Peak Power per Weight (W.kg-1); Mean Power per Weight (W.kg-1); Fatigue Index (%); Total effort time (s). The paired sample t-test resulted in a significant difference in EG with significance values of Peak Power p = .010, Mean Power p = .007, Peak Power per Weight p = .011, Mean Power per Weight p = .008, Fatigue Index p = .045, and total effort time p = .011, while in CG all variables do not have significant differences. The Independent T-test found that there was a significant difference between EG and CG with a significance value of p < .05. This research concludes that the rotation play training model with HIIT Protocol has a positive effect on the anaerobic endurance of amateur futsal players

  • Effect of conditioning activity absolute intensity on seated shot put
           performance

    • Authors: Diego de Alcantara Borba, Laura Ribeiro, Yan Léo de Melo Vieira, Camila Fernanda Costa e Cunha Moraes Brandão, Lucas Rios Drummond, Lucas Túlio de Lacerda
      Pages: 608 - 616
      Abstract: Conditioning activities are widely used in sports for improving performance in a subsequent main activity. Therefore, understanding the organization of these exercises is important for athletes. Therefore, the objective this study was to evaluate whether the conditioning activity absolute intensity affects the seated shot put performance. Twenty-four physically active male adults were subjected, every 24 hours apart and in a randomized manner, to the following situations: control (no conditioning activity), seat shot 2 kg ball; seated shot 4 kg ball and; seated shot 6 kg ball. Three minutes after these shots, participants performed the seat shot put main activity (4kg). To record the seat shot put performance, the greatest distance of the six attempts was considered. The shot put distance was greater in conditioning activity compared to the control situation (p < .05). There was no difference in shot put distance among conditioning activity situations (p > .05). In addition, individual analysis using typical error showed that 63% of the participants responded positively to the conditioning activities. In conclusion, despite the beneficial effect of the conditioning activity in relation to the control situation, there was no effect of the absolute intensity of the conditioning activity on shot put performance.

  • Analysis of the effectiveness of different play types in the end of game
           possessions of close EuroLeague matches

    • Authors: Panagiotis Foteinakis, Stefania Pavlidou, Nikolaos Stavropoulos
      Pages: 617 - 630
      Abstract: End-of-game possessions during the final minutes of a game often have a significant impact on the final result of the match. The purpose of the present study was to analyse the structure and efficacy of possession play types in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter and overtime of EuroLeague close matches and relate them to the result of the game. The offensive play types of 90 EuroLeague games were analysed. 955 end-of-game possessions were analysed and categorized into 11 predefined play types. Sport Scout STA software was used as the observation instrument. The results indicated that the isolation (ISO) play type (23.6%) had the highest frequency, while Hand-Off (0.63%) was the least frequent play type. Cut (CUT) play type was the most effective (82.4%), producing 1.58 Points Per Possession (PPP), followed by PB (69%), and 1.33 PPP. Post Up, ISO, and Spot Up play types were the least effective, producing 0.78–0.98 PPP. Winning teams had longer-lasting possessions compared to defeated teams. Longer-lasting possessions were less effective than possessions that lasted less than 6 seconds. More cooperative play types increased the efficacy of possessions at the end of the game.

      Pages: 654 - 666
      Abstract: The main objective of this study was to compare the physical, technical, and tactical performances of the 32 teams that participated in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ concerning the confederation to which they belong and the FIFA ranking. Key statistics from the 64 matches played during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ were analysed. The data from these matches were encoded and calculated by a multi-camera optical tracking system (TRACAB Gen5, ChyronHego). Significant differences were identified between Rank 1-15th vs. Rank 16-35th and Rank 1-15th vs. Rank 36-61st for possession, total attempts at goal, total attempts on target, total passes, total complete passes, passes completion possession, completed line breaks, defensive line breaks, receptions in the final third, and ball progressions. However, defensive line breaks were different only between Rank 1-15th vs. Rank 36-61st, and ball progressions was only different between Rank 1-15th vs. Rank 16-35th. Africa and Europe national confederation showed significant differences (all p < .05) for possession, total attempts on target, total passes, total complete passes, passes completion, completed line breaks, and receptions in the final third, except for total attempts on target, whose differences are between Asian and South American confederation (p < .05). When considering the FIFA ranking and the confederations, there are significant differences key performance indicator of the teams.

  • Patterns of collective organization associated with positive and negative
           momentum experiences in football

    • Authors: Hervé Gautier, Olivier Cavailles, Christophe Gernigon
      Pages: 667 - 678
      Abstract: Purpose: Momentum experiences in sport competition are known to be associated with performance-related behavioural changes. In addition to effort exertion, interpersonal synchronization in small team sports has been identified as a behavioural correlate of momentum experiences. However, there is a lack of research on collective organization related to momentum in larger team sports. The present study aimed to identify and compare patterns of collective organization in football according to positive and negative momentum experiences in the form of gradual and significant score variations. Method(s): We analysed expert coaches' video-based descriptions of the collective organization of high level football teams that experienced positive and negative momentum phases during international matches. Results: The main results show that positive momentum phases were associated with forward-located and compact team block, as well as with players' runs more often directed towards the opposing goal. Negative momentum phases were associated with backward-located and stretched team block, as well as with frequent backward runs and block-disconnected individual actions. Conclusion(s): These initial findings regarding the relationships between momentum experiences and collective organization in team sports pave the way for the training of skills for early detection of momentum phases and skills for reacting appropriately to their onset.

  • Facial fingerprint analysis using artificial intelligence techniques and
           its ability to respond quickly during karate (kumite)

    • Authors: Mohammed Asim Ghazi, Mayasa Abd Ali Kadhim, Lamyaa Hasan Aldewan, Sanaa Jawad Kadhim Almayah
      Pages: 679 - 689
      Abstract: The document discusses the use of facial fingerprint analysis using artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to quickly respond during karate matches. The integration of AI with sports technical analysis has the potential to improve the technical and tactical level of athletes. Traditional methods for tactical intelligence analysis in competitive sports have limitations such as high cost, data loss, delay, and low accuracy, but the use of convolutional neural networks and graph convolution models has shown promising results in the automatic, intelligent analysis of karate athletes' technical action recognition, action frequency statistics, and trajectory tracking. Eye-tracking technology is also used to analyse various aspects of performance and help identify visual strategies employed by athletes. By analysing video footage of facial biometrics during karate competition performances, performance criteria can be measured based on relevant skills in karate, and an objective scoring rubric can be developed for each criterion. Then, the scores can be compared between performers to see individual strengths and weaknesses and to optimize training, technique, and performance. Ultimately, the study seeks to investigate how to improve performance and decision-making in kumite by using AI techniques to analyse the eye print during an exhibition performance.

  • Effects of transcranial continuous current stimulation (tDCS) associated
           with aerobic exercise in the treatment of food compulsion

    • Authors: Milena Artifon, Gabriel Mayer Tossi, Nathália Griebler, Pedro Schestatsky, Francesco Boeno, Cesar Moritz, Juliana Lopes Teodoro, Lucas Beraldo, Lauren Naomi Adachi, Álvaro Reischak de Oliveira, Caroline Pietta-Dias
      Pages: 436 - 450
      Abstract: Introduction: Binge eating disorder (BED) is closely associated with obesity, characterized by the repeated consumption of large amounts of food accompanied by a feeling of loss of control during the episode of binge eating. Existing treatments are moderately effective with high rates of recurrence; thus, physical exercise and neuromodulation techniques have emerged with positive potential associated with self-control in reward brain regions. Objective: To investigate whether 20 sessions of transcranial direct current (tDCS) stimulation alone or combined with aerobic exercise (AE) could reduce food consumption and the perception of hunger and satiety in adult individuals with BED. Methods: Adult individuals with BED were included in a randomized, double-blind study. Participants received 20 sessions according to random randomization (1) active tDCS, (2) placebo and AE tDCS or (3) active tDCS and AE, simultaneously with videos of foods that cause fissures, such as sweets and fast foods. tDCS was applied at 2mA / 20 min, with the anode over the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and the cathode over the contralateral supraorbital region (Soterix Medical®). The AE was performed on a treadmill after tDCS, at an intensity of 60-65% of HRmax, repeating the evaluations at the end. Primary outcomes included measures of food intake and perceptions of hunger, satiety and desire. Secondary outcomes were assessed through body composition, biochemical markers (lipid, glycaemic and leptin profile) and maximum oxygen consumption. Results: The tDCS group had lower values of triglycerides and lean mass compared to the other groups. However, in relation to food intake, hunger, satiety throughout the day, and uncontrollable desire to eat, there was no difference between the groups. Conclusions: tDCS alone was able to improve more clinical outcomes such as adipose mass and triglycerides. To our knowledge, to date this is the first study to demonstrate that the association of tDCS with aerobic exercise can improve the symptoms of binge eating in the investigated population. Test record: ReBEC identifier RBR-3d8fd2.

  • Battery test innovation for table tennis skills

    • Authors: Hary Widodo, Tomoliyus, Abdul Alim
      Pages: 451 - 460
      Abstract: Table tennis is a sport that requires skill as a determining factor in athletes competing at the elite level. This is inseparable from tests and measurements of athlete skills. This study's objective was to evaluate the battery test's content validity for table tennis skills. This study uses a mixed method of qualitative and quantitative, explorative sequential model design. The Delphi technique was utilized to collect the study data, with the subjects including thirty players of table tennis as well as four professional specialists in the sport as well as three academic experts. This study used an instrument with a rating scale of one to five. Furthermore, the data obtained were analysed using the Aiken formula. The qualitative results explained that the dominant variables of the battery test for table tennis skills that need to be measured included forehand drive, backhand drive, forehand topspin, backhand topspin, backspin service, and topspin service. The results showed that the table tennis skills battery test obtained a value of V = 0.969 for the first aspect, the second aspect obtained a value of V = 0.969, the third aspect obtained a value of V = 0.969, the fourth aspect obtained a value of V = 0.969, the fifth aspect obtained a value of V = 0.906, the sixth aspect obtained a value of V = 0.875, and the seventh aspect obtained a value of V = 0.844. Furthermore, the ICC results show that the average points of each athlete are categorized as good. Based on these results, the table tennis skills battery test has high content validity and has good reliability so the table tennis skills battery test can be used to measure table tennis skills.

  • Health and skill-related physical fitness of physiotherapy students

    • Authors: Lara Al-Khlaifat, Emad Al-yahya, Dania Qutishat, Rasha Okasheh, Maha T. Mohammad, Jennifer Muhaidat
      Pages: 461 - 472
      Abstract: Physiotherapy is a physically demanding profession. Health and skill-related physical fitness should be emphasized in physiotherapy students for both the personal benefit on their own health and injury prevention and for the sustainability of their ability to meet job demands. This study aims to assess levels of health and skill-related physical fitness in undergraduate physiotherapy students in Jordan. A cross sectional study of 109 physiotherapy students; 23 males aged 19.57 (1.44) years and 86 females aged 20.02 (2.61) years. The following health and skill-related physical fitness components were assessed: body mass index (BMI), modified sit and reach, partial curl-up, push-ups, vertical jump, 20-m shuttle run, handgrip strength, 4x10 shuttle run, and star excursion balance tests. Most of the students had normal BMI (65.1%) but levels of physical fitness were mainly poor and below average except for hamstring flexibility which was excellent. Lack of normative data on agility and dynamic balance in healthy adults who are not athletes limited determining their level in our students. The results mainly demonstrated poor levels of health-related physical fitness of Jordanian physiotherapy students, which could have a significant effect on their performance and increase their risk of injury. Dynamic balance and agility results are presented for the first time in healthy adults (not athletes) which could be used in future research. It is suggested to encourage commitment towards lifestyle modification and health behaviour and increase awareness of the physical demands of the profession.

      Pages: 473 - 482
      Abstract: Mental strength is defined as a person’s ability to persist through challenging situations and recover from hardships and failures. Due to combat sports (CS) vigorous nature, several authors have identified various psychological factors modified through CS engagement and experience. This research aimed to determine the psychometrics of the Mental Strength Scale, explore the correlations between mental strength and age, CS experience, and competitive engagement, and investigate the existing group differences in mental strength based on sex, age, CS engagement, competition engagement, and CS experience. The total sample included 431 participants from 18 to 67 years of age, including 373 CS practitioners and 58 non-practitioners. Results revealed that The Mental Strength Scale demonstrated good internal validity (Cronbach’s alpha = 0.809) and convergent validity (Grit Scale correlation: p < .001, r = .539; Brief Resilience Scale correlation: p < .001, r = .551). A positive correlation was found between CS experience and mental strength. Group comparison demonstrated higher mental strength in CS practitioners than non-practitioners and in men compared to women. Moreover, CS participants in the >5, 2-5, and <2 years of experience reported higher mental strength than participants with no CS experience. In conclusion, the findings confirm that the Mental Strength Scale is a good psychometric instrument to assess the degree of mental strength, particularly in CS practitioners, and that CS engagement and experience positively influence the development of mental strength.

  • Effects of 4-week circuit strength combined with blood flow restriction
           training on muscle status and performance in Taekwondo athletes

    • Authors: Weiye Li, Zhendong Gao, Yutong Liu, Jiaxu Wang
      Pages: 483 - 498
      Abstract: This study explored the effects of a 4-week circuit strength training with blood flow restriction on Taekwondo athletes. Six male athletes (age 20.6 ± 1.85, height 184.3 ± 7.63 cm, training duration 7.5 ± 2.07 years) were assessed for explosive strength, muscle recruitment, and sport-specific skills. The regimen encompassed evaluations of lower limb power, Isokinetic strength, force via electronic kicks, and Tensiomyography (TMG) measurements pre-and post-training. Outcomes revealed enhanced jumping abilities, improved knee muscles, and superior kicking skills. There was a notable increase in muscle fibre recruitment and a shift towards type II muscle fibres. Medial thigh muscle displacement showed a positive correlation with jump duration, while lateral thigh muscles indicated a connection with kick numbers. The regimen notably improved explosive power, muscle fibre distribution, and reduced muscle contraction times. Yet, no significant changes in lower limb bilateral symmetry or the link between TMG parameters and athletic prowess were observed.

  • Final pass and its relationship with final action for the creation of
           goal-scoring opportunities at EURO 2020

    • Authors: Efstratios Kyranoudis, Katerina Papadimitriou, Aggelos Kyranoudis, Anestis Giannakopoulos, Xanthi Konstantinidou
      Pages: 499 - 509
      Abstract: The purpose of this research was to study EURO 2020 goal scoring opportunities by recording the technique of the final pass, the technique of the final action and their zone of execution. A sub-objective was to test the relationship between the technique and zone of the final-pass, but also the relationship between the final-pass zone, the zone of final-action and its efficiency. The parameters studied were, a) the final pass zone, b) the final pass technique, c) the final action zone, and d) the result of the final action. Data collection was done with SportScout software. The correlation between variables was tested using the Crosstabs analysis and the Chi-Square statistic criterion. The results showed that most of the final passes were made from the zone outside the 18-yard box and the most common techniques used were the medium-range and the short-range passes. The independence or homogeneity test showed that the type of final pass was significantly influenced by the zone in which it was executed. The same was the case with the final action zone, which appeared to be significantly affected by the final pass zone. However, the effectiveness of the attacks depended only on the zone of final action (the final actions were more effective when taken from the zone between the six-yard box area and the penalty spot). An assessment of the opportunities that lead to goals and how they are created can help identify the tactical factors that increase efficiency and lead to more goals being scored.

  • Comparison of the effect of passive recovery and self-myofascial release
           in post-match recovery in female soccer players

    • Authors: Geraldo Oliveira Carvalho Junior, Karine Naves de Oliveira Goulart, Eduardo Mendonça Pimenta, Sophia Laís Araújo Fortes, Karina Braga Gomes, Bruno Pena Couto
      Pages: 510 - 521
      Abstract: The self-myofascial release is often included in football training routines the day after games to help athletes recover, but its effects when performed at this time have not yet been investigated. This study aimed to investigate the effect of a myofascial self-release protocol on post-match recovery in female professional soccer players. Ten players were included in the study, and all athletes underwent two study conditions: self-myofascial release (SMFR) and passive recovery (control). The SMFR was performed on the quadriceps, adductors, hamstrings, iliotibials, gluteus, and gastrocnemius bands, lasting approximately 25 minutes, on the day after the match. The study monitored various recovery markers, including the Total Quality Recovery Scale (TQR), delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), mood state, BRAMS (fatigue and vigour), vertical jump, countermovement jump (CMJ), 10 and 20m sprint, and creatine kinase (CK), before the game, 24 and 48 h post-match. The results showed no significant differences between the passive recovery and SMFR for any of the variables monitored. The results of this study indicate that a single session of self-myofascial release (SMFR), performed 24 hours after a female soccer match, has comparable efficacy to passive recovery for post-match.

      Abstract: Circadian rhythms are internal mechanisms that regulate various aspects of the human body's physiology and behaviour that are influenced by activity, physicality, and change time in 24 hours. This study aims to compare oxidant levels and hormonal levels based on differences in training times, namely morning and evening, in badminton athletes. This research involved 44 badminton athletes using a purposive sampling technique who were divided into a morning group (n = 22) and an evening group (n = 22). Melatonin levels were measured using the Elabscience Kit (No. E-EL-H2016) and malondialdehyde (MDA) levels using spectrophotometry. All research procedures have received ethical approval from the Hasanuddin University Medical Faculty Ethics Commission (Number: 377/UN4.6.4.5.31/PP36/2023). The results of this study indicate that the athlete's melatonin value in the morning was 76.71 ± (29.05-247.45) higher than in the evening 80.43 ± (50.83-155.24) Meanwhile, the athlete's MDA value in the evening was 2.08 ± (0.74–4.57) higher compared to the MDA in the morning of 1.09 ± (0.33–3.71). Meanwhile, based on the insomnia value for evening training, a higher value was obtained compared to morning training, namely 9.50 ± (3-11). However, there was no significant difference in stress levels. The results of the study showed that badminton athletes who trained at night tended to experience sleep disturbances (insomnia) and increased oxidant levels, while hormonal levels, especially melatonin, were higher in athletes who trained in the morning.

      Abstract: Objective: Based on the problem at hand, the aim of this study was to investigate how adolescents' personal resilience is understood in the context of developing mental education through sports activities. Research Methods: This study used a quantitative research method with an experimental approach. This study used a sample of high school students (SMA) class XI which was taken by randomized sampling. The total sample of this study amounted to 50 students. Students who became the research sample were assumed to have the ability (in class XI) and the same age (average 16 years). Research results: The results show that there is an average difference between the Pre-test and Post-test physical education learning outcomes, which means that there is an average difference in students' personal resilience scores between the pre-test and post-test. These results indicate the influence of the results of mental education intervention through physical education in increasing students' personal resilience. In the implementation of the post-test, the average value is 100.3 while the average value of the post-test is 49.5, or if you look at the difference (gain) between the post-test and the pre-test of 50.4 which shows a significant result of increasing student resilience from the results of mental education interventions in sports education learning at school. Conclusion: Mental education development programs in adolescents should be tailored to the health interests of the adolescent generation. Sports clubs have the potential to be an arena for health improvement.

      Abstract: University students are an exclusive subcategory because most of them are young adults at a transformation period, training to stay independently while concurrently working toward completion of their professional degrees. Previous research reported that only 30% to 50% of university students meet the recommended proportion of exercise for health advantage. Mobile fitness apps are invented on purpose to support exercise. Many health advantages like preventing cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, it will marshal exercise and as mobile motivational tools because motivation is a major barrier to exercise. The present study was designed to investigate and compare the exercise intensity between the mobile fitness app users and none-users. The secondary purpose was to examine and compare the exercise intensity between gender from the university students. A total three hundred fifty-five university students were recruited in the study. The International Physical Activity Questionnaires- Short Form (IPAQ-SF) was used to collect exercise intensity of the participants in current study. All participants have been briefed on the objectives of this study and agreed to answer the International Physical Activity Questionnaires (IPAQ) and signed an informed consent form. The independent t-tests to determine the differences of the exercise intensity between mobile fitness app users and nonmobile fitness users. Independent t-tests also to find-out differences exercise intensity between gender in the university students, the statistical significance was set at p < .05. There were significant differences of exercise intensity level between nonmobile fitness apps users and mobile fitness apps users [ t (352) = 2.82, p = .005, d = 0.28]. It means the nonmobile fitness apps users had a significant higher exercise intensity if compared to the mobile fitness apps users. There were significant differences of exercise intensity level between male and female university students [ t (352) = 4.54, p = .001, d = 0.48]. Current results are similar to many studies found that female students participated in less exercise than their male counterparts.
