explain these results. The following strengths and limitations need to be considered. A strength of this study is the objective measurement of PA, specifically walking duration. Self-report is prone to bias and may be a particular issue in older adults. However, the results are based on a cross

assessment of muscle strength is an important consideration in clinical as well as athletic populations, as it is able to track change in a given muscle or joint movement. 3 Objective measurement methods can include electromyography, hand-held dynamometry (HHD), and isokinetic dynamometry, with the latter

observation. 12 , 13 Objective measurement of kinematics outside the laboratory requires wearable sensors that are easy to apply, unobtrusive, and reach a level of accuracy sufficient to answer the study question. Inertial measurement units (IMUs) have grown in popularity for the measurement of joint motion

are some limitations we must acknowledge. First, the open nature of the exercise task meant that workload could not be controlled, and therefore, it cannot be discounted that workload may have been different between visits. An objective measurement of workload like heart rate alongside perceived

studies are needed to understand the causal nature of the associations. Notwithstanding, by our knowledge, this was the first study that described the association between sedentary behavior patterns, using objective measurement and adiposity indicators from a middle-income country. Middle-income countries

If so, to what extent (and why) do these effects vary across settings? With the increasing objective measurement of physical activity globally and the

intervention was collected on participants in their class groups (maximum n  = 30) during specific school visits. Objective measurements, such as FMS and FMS ™ , were carried out during a typical PE class, while subjective self-report questionnaire measurements were taken during a separate school visit in a
