  • Determinants of Team Sport Participation Decision in the Wake of the
           Pandemic Among University Youth

    • Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has affected sport participation at universities around the world. The decision to participate among sport-minded youth at university is influenced by numerous factors. The study was conducted to investigate a certain salient factors determining decision-making by university youth about participating in team sport. The sample was represented by 324 members of university youth who were selected using a multi-stage sampling method. They voluntarily responded to an electronic survey with no renumerations. Binary logistic regression was chosen as the statistical technique used to evaluate the hypotheses. The results revealed that team sport participation could be significantly predicted by these explanatory variables. The study provided a reference for promoting participation in sports, exercise, and physical activity for the university youth cohort. University administrators gained insights from the findings in planning their intramural sports events. Future sport management research could further investigate the mechanisms underlying this model and other potential factors. Published on 2022-09-23 11:59:52
  • A Pilot 6-Week Lifestyle Intervention in Women Aged 50+ in Ireland

    • Abstract: Introduction: The deleterious effects of ageing and inactivity are compounded by the menopause which typically occurs in females aged 50+. The menopause is associated with unfavourable changes in body composition including decreased skeletal muscle mass, bone density and increased adipose tissue. This study aimed to determine the effects of a 6-week community-based intervention on nutrition knowledge and physical, metabolic, and cardiovascular health of women aged 50+ years.Methods: Nineteen participants (57 ± 6 years, 32.4 ± 7.2 kg/m2) completed the intervention consisting of 2 hours of aerobic training (home-based / participant led), 2 hours of concurrent training (instructor led) and one 60-minute health workshop per week. General nutrition knowledge was assessed using an adapted validated questionnaire. Body weight, body mass index (BMI), body composition and waist circumference were measured pre and post intervention. Lower body strength endurance and cardiovascular endurance were assessed using sit-to-stand and 6-minute walk tests respectively. Point-of-care testing determined fasting glucose and lipid profile.Results: There were significant reductions in body weight (–2.2 ± 2.0 kg, p < 0.01), BMI (–0.9 ± 0.8 kg/m2, p < 0.05), percent body fat (–1.1 ± 0.5%, p < 0.05), waist circumference (–2.4 ± 0.5 cm, p < 0.05) and fasting glucose (–0.6 ± 0.8 mmol/L) post intervention. General nutrition knowledge score (5.8 ± 0.05, p < 0.05), 6-minute walk test (Mdn = 82.5, IQR = 49.5, p < 0.05) and sit-to-stand performance increased (11.5 ± 4.5 repetitions, p < 0.05) significantly.Discussion: This intervention successfully improved body weight, BMI, body fat percent, waist circumference, fasting glucose, general nutrition knowledge, cardiovascular fitness, and lower body strength of participants. Metabolic health improved with a trend towards improved cardiovascular health. Published on 2022-09-16 10:01:36
  • ‘You are Constantly Trying to Make the Best Out of All Situations’:
           Adolescents with Overweight and School Health Nurses in Norway on Weight
           Stigma and Physical Activity

    • Abstract: Background: Weight stigma is highly present in physical activities in the lives of adolescents with overweight. Nevertheless, increased physical activity is one of the target lifestyle determinants in health workers’ follow-up with adolescents at risk of negative weight development. The present study examines how adolescents with overweight and school health nurses who monitor and guide these young people perceive weight stigma in physical activity.Methods: We interviewed a community sample of 10 adolescents (13–18 years) with overweight or obesity and six school health nurses about weight stigma in physical activity. Data were analysed using reflexive thematic analysis.Results: We generated three main themes describing experiences with weight stigma in physical activity. 1) ‘being (in)visible’ identified contradictory motives of both wanting to hide their body to avoid being on display and at the same time working hard to be physically active to disprove the stereotypical view of people with overweight, 2) ‘being perceived as unacceptable’ identified adolescents’ understandings of themselves as individuals who ought to transform into a slimmer version through exercise and 3) ‘dealing with social interaction’ identified different strategies used to handle the stigma.Conclusion: Insight into adolescents’ complex experiences with weight stigma related to physical activity and follow-up with school health nurses is essential to inform approaches to increase physical activity participation without reinforcing weight stigma.

  • How does the COVID-19 Outbreak in Saudi Arabian Affect PA Behavior and
           Psychological Health of Females Compared to the Men Population'

    • Abstract: Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers and scientists in different domains have tried to study the various aspects of this virus to identify a future solution and strategy for managing similar crises. Physical activity and psychological health were the most important subjects. Our research aimed to explore the change in physical activity behavior in Saudi citizens during the COVID-19 outbreak and its relationship with psychological health in the three most affected regions of Saudi Arabia. The questionnaire was designed by multidisciplinary academic specialists in physical activity and psychology and shared in the Arabic language through an electronic form. The participant were 2980 voluntaries, including 1508 women and 1472 men participate in this study. Results show a significant relationship between PA groups, gender variables and psychological health. The percentage of active females increased from 40% to 50% during the COVID-19 outbreak compared to before. Active women seem less affected in psychological health by confinement than inactive women and men. We found a significant difference between active and inactive women, in depression level, Anxiety and somatic symptoms. In conclusion, this study highlighted the importance of physical activity during the COVID-19 outbreak in KSA specially for women. It also suggests that physical activity can be a solution to fight the negative effect of future similar pandemics on psychological health. Published on 2022-08-23 11:18:04
  • Barriers and Facilitators for Participation in Physical Activity in the
           Transgender Population: A Systematic Review

    • Abstract: Research question(s): What barriers and facilitators influence transgender people’s participation in physical activity'Background: Transgender equality has become a high-profile issue in recent years with transgender athletes making headlines in both the USA and the UK. Social and health inequalities experienced by transgender individuals are widely recognised. Physical activity promotion is a core area of public health due to its documented benefits. It is therefore important to understand reasons for participation rates in this community to support effective policies and practice.Methods: Data base searches were used to identify relevant studies. Studies were screened and data extracted systematically. Narrative synthesis was utilised to analyse results from heterogenous studies.Results: Ten relevant studies were identified, including six qualitative and four quantitative studies. Narrative synthesis determined five themes: changing rooms, medical transition, sports environments and activities, relationships and social support, physical and psychological safety. Participants described intense experiences of vulnerability, victimisation, and stigma.Conclusions: There are multiple intersecting barriers and facilitators for transgender people’s participation in physical activity. Practical barriers, such as lack of appropriate changing facilities or the gendered nature of sports teams and activities, may contribute. But more subtle, psychological issues, of feeling safe and fitting in may be equally important. Published on 2022-08-17 11:46:11
  • Cardiorespiratory System in the Context of Regular Exercise in Kayaking

    • Abstract: Introduction: The ideas of humanistic education in the 1950s made significant changes in study of the components of health. Analysis of health indicators showed how the students are overwhelmed in their studies. The process of implementation of pedagogical technologies presupposes, first of all, an increase in professionalism in the field of physical education, which is impossible without the assimilation of various types of educational technologies by teachers. The aim of this article is generalisation of existing approaches and advanced scientific experience and their application in the study of athletes performance.Methods: The present study used analytical approach and the method of comparison. In the course of the study, 64 athletes aged 17–18 were tested. The article used analytical approach and the method of comparison.Results: It was found that rowers on kayaks improved their results in most indicators in all observed groups. At the same time, there were significant changes in physical fitness within each group.Discussion and conclusion: The scientific novelty of the study is due to the fact that the paper presents the general cardiorespiratory system from the side of all physical exercises, and rowing in particular. The practical implication of the study of health and fitness education provides the ability to identify personal health problems, the ability to notice the health-related needs of the family and people around, the willingness to make choices and decisions to ensure a healthy lifestyle.

  • Do Kinematic Study Assessments Improve Accuracy & Precision in Golf
           Putting' A Comparison between Elite and Amateur Golfers: A Systematic
           Review and Meta-Analysis

    • Abstract: Introduction: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether kinematic assessments help to improve golf putting accuracy and precision, and increase the success rate of golf putts. Specifically, this study also investigated the differences in club head velocity and putter face angle at impact (°) between elite and amateur golfers.Methods: A total of 25 articles were used in this review. An initial, broad search of electronic databases including PubMed, SPORT discus, Scopus, Science Direct and Google Scholar was conducted for literature using the keywords “biomechanics” AND “golf putting”. The total number of studies screened for this review was n = 897. Among these articles, only n = 63 were assessed for eligibility. The number of articles were reduced further to n = 25 and included in the qualitative and quantitative synthesis.Results: Out of the initial n = 897, n = 834 records were excluded. After the articles were assessed for eligibility, n = 17 articles were excluded for not meeting the inclusion criteria. The studies included demonstrated that kinematic approaches can help improve accuracy and precision of golf putts which help to increase the success rate of putts and reduce overall scoring. Elite golfers have a more accurate direction and face angle when compared to amateur golfers.Conclusion: This systematic review and meta-analysis suggests that kinematic assessments of face angle at impact, putter path, the vertical spot and backswing are critical determinants of a golfer’s success and are useful indicators to help improve accuracy and precision of golf putts. This study also noted that elite golfers had slightly less velocity but more precise putter face angles at impact which increased their accuracy in completing more successful putts than amateur golfers.

  • Reflections, Impact and Future Recommendations Following ‘Prime Time of
           Life’ – an Online 12-week Multimodal Physical Activity and Health
           Education Programme for Middle Aged and Older Adults in Laois

    • Abstract: Introduction: Multimodal training (MMT) is important for healthy ageing. However, few middle-aged (MAA) and older adults (OA) engage in MMT. This study aimed to (1) explore MAA and OA reflections, impact and future recommendations following ‘Prime Time of Life’ (PTOL) – a 12-week online multimodal physical activity and health education programme; and (2) examine if participants implemented and sustained lifestyle changes during and after the programme.Methods: A qualitative study was conducted with purposeful sampling to explore the experiences of MAA and OA who completed PTOL. Six semi-structured focus groups and five interviews were conducted using online communication technology, audio-recorded, and transcribed verbatim. Transcripts were analysed using thematic analysis.Results: Twenty-one male (n = 7,65.9 ± 6.6 years) and female (n = 14,65 ± 7.6 years) participants completed the study. Accessibility, health benefits, suitability, social influence, and accountability were identified as key facilitators. Poor awareness, social influence, accessibility, and poor self-efficacy were perceived as potential barriers. Participants primarily (90.5%, n = 19) made lifestyle changes during the PTOL programme, and 61.9% (n = 13) maintained at least one lifestyle change seven months after completing the programme.Discussion: Although lack of social interaction between participants was identified as a barrier, PTOL was a well-accepted method to promote healthy ageing for MAA and OA. Given there was a poor awareness of other MMT programmes and health benefits prior to PTOL there is a need for increased awareness. It is important to MAA and OA that they have convenient access to MMT programmes that are suitable for all fitness and functional abilities and provide technical support.

  • The Impact of Environment on Physical Activity Levels and Obesity among
           Saudi Arabia Youth: Comparison of Urban; Rural Farm and Rural Desert
           Geographical Locations

    • Abstract: Background: The inactive lifestyle is becoming prevalent in many developed and developing countries including Saudi Arabia. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of neighborhoods’ characteristics on physical activity (PA) levels and body mass index (BMI) in Saudi adolescents.Methods: The anthropometric measurement of 380 secondary-school (boys = 199; girls = 181) from different geographical locations such as urban, rural farm and rural desert was taken using the Seca digital scales for weight and Seca portable measure for height. The BMI was calculated using the formula kg/m2 followed by participants wearing piezoelectric, New-Lifestyles NL-2000 PA Monitor, and completing the international physical activity short form questionnaire.Results: The findings indicated, an average boys recorded 9180 steps per day compared to girls 5580 and the univariate ANOVA revealed a significant difference between genders steps per day in three geographical areas (F1,334 = 70.01, p < 0.001). The BMI results demonstrated that participant from rural farm had lower BMI (mean = 21.01 kg/m2) compared to urban location (mean = 24.12 kg/m2) and rural desert youth (mean = 25.58 kg/m2) indicating significant differences in BMI status in geographical locations (F2,379 = 16.40, p < 0.001).Conclusion: The inactivity and obesity prevalence are prevalent amongst demographic groups in Al-Ahsa. Therefore, future policies and interventions could target this populations especially the rural desert youth in which the health risk could be higher. Published on 2022-06-15 12:51:14
  • Physical Activity and Depression/Anxiety Symptoms in Adolescents –
           the Young-HUNT Study

    • Abstract: Children and adolescents who report mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety, has increased steadily in recent years. At the same time there is also a reduction in physical activity level among children and adolescents. The present study aimed to explore the association of physical activity and participation in sport activity with depression and anxiety symptoms stratified by sex and age group. Cohort data was obtained from the Trøndelag Health Study (Young-HUNT4). The analyses were based on cross-sectional data on 7,347 participants. Multinominal logistic regression models were used to estimate the association between physical activity and participation in sport activity with depressive/anxiety symptoms. The analyses showed that depression and anxiety symptoms increased with age and that girls were at an increased risk of developing depressive/anxiety symptoms than boys. For physical activity, the analyses suggested that inactive adolescents had a higher possibility of experiencing anxiety and depression symptoms than active adolescents. This applied for both girls (OR = 1.51, p < 0.001) and boys (OR = 1.29, p = 0.037). For sport activity, adolescents with a low activity level had a higher probability of experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression than adolescents with high activity level. This also applied to both girls (OR = 1.75, p < 0.001) and boys (OR) = 1,55, p = 0.007). The study indicates that adolescents who are regularly physically active in sport activities have a lower possibility of experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety than those who are physically less active.
