Number meeting guidelines
Health Claims - Homeostasis
Sedentary Level

exercise research
Are all countries using the WHO guidelines?
What are the guidelines?
Children's attitude towards exercise
5-17yr Olds
60min of
Progressive Overload
Cardinal et al 1998
Marcus and Simkin 1994
Muscle- Strengthening
Bone- Strengthening
American Government guidelines
Our Recommendations
''The habit of physical activity begun or maintained in childhood and adolescence may also carry over into adulthood''
(Myers et al 1996)
Reduce risk of chronic diseases
and obesity problems
Active child -
active adult
Reduce high
Blood pressure
Concentration, memory and
classroom behaviour
Improve depression and
anxiety symptoms
Reduce risk of asthma
First guidelines introduced in 2002
Adapted to WHO recommendations in 2011
WHO Recommendations 2010
Woods et al 2010
Schools/ Education
For those who are meeting the recommendations- GREAT!! KEEP GOING!!
If not, then begin slowly...
What are the guidelines worldwide?
Research behind guidelines
Intensities of exercise
Children's perceptions and influencing factors
Transtheoretical model
Our Recommendations- YOLO concept
5-17 years is too broad
Separate guidelines for the sedentary- gradual progressions following the progressive overload concept
Key Concept
Myers et al 1996
Vigorous and moderate separate
5-17 years needs to be broken up
Boys and Girls
PA level you are at
Goals need deadlines
Moderate = increase in HR and breathing
Vigorous = Breathing and HR much higher than normal
More specific than just 'an increase'
Smartphones- measure at home
HR max= 220-age
100% of population ?
Overload and Progression
Sufficiently challenging
20% increase attainable
Progressive overload
20% increase = +2mins if at 10mins
+10mins if at 50mins
Calculate the time needed
Meeting guidelines
Not meeting guidelines
Overload is the physical stress placed on the body when PA is greater in amount or intensity than usual
Once health benefits begin to accrue additonal amounts provide addition benefits
