School-based health activities that involve parents are more likely to be effective for child health and wellbeing than activities without a parent component. However, such school-based interventions tend to recruit the most motivated parents and limited evidence exists surrounding the involvement of hard-to-reach parents with low socioeconomic status (SES). Mothers remain responsible for the majority of family care, therefore, this study investigated mothers with low SES to establish the reason...

Recommendations on resistance training (RT) set-volume protocols in preparation for spaceflight muscular strength remains equivocal. A meta-analysis was performed on the effects of single-set (S), or three-set (M3) RT on muscular strength per exercise for different body segments (upper and lower body) and joint types. Computerised searches were performed on PubMed, MEDLINE and SPORTDiscusTM. Twelve studies were considered appropriate according to pre-set eligibility criteria. Outcomes analysed w...

Previous school-based interventions have produced positive effects upon measures of children’s health and wellbeing but such interventions are often delivered by external experts which result in short-term effects. Thus, upskilling and expanding the resources available to classroom teachers could provide longer-term solutions. This paper presents a feasibility study of an online health resource (Healthy Schools Resource: HSR) developed to assist primary school teachers in the delivery of health-...

Context Walking football (soccer) has recently emerged as a physical activity option targeted at older males to enhance health and wellbeing. Design This pilot study aimed to examine the feasibility of recruiting and retaining males aged 50 years and over to an 8-week walking football programme in a professional football club. Intervention Participants were recruited via social media and assigned to an intervention group or a wait-list control group. The intervention group engaged in 1 h of walk...

ABSTRACTThis study examined differences in physical activity (PA) estimates provided from raw and counts processing methods. One hundred and sixty-five children (87 girls) wore a hip-mounted ActiGraph GT3X+ accelerometer for 7 days. Data were available for 129 participants. Time in moderate PA (MPA), vigorous PA (VPA) and moderate-vigorous PA (MVPA) were calculated using R-package GGIR and ActiLife. Participants meeting the wear time criteria for both processing methods were included in the anal...
