The subjective and objective measurements provide essential information that clinicians can use to identify groups that may respond more positively in a specific intervention program. This theory is supported by

study and the objective measurement of ST and PA should be considered as strengths. Given the small number of studies that have examined associations between changes in ST, MVPA, and BMI over time in young schoolchildren, especially using objective measurement, the results of the present study extend
