Although physical inactivity (ie, sedentary time) seems to be highly predictive of metabolic risks, Healy et al 12 recently demonstrated that replacement of sedentary time with even light physical activity markedly decreased risk of metabolic disease in an

, sedentary behavior has emerged as a “new” health behavior ( 20 ). However, this behavior is best understood when objectively quantified. In addition, it is important to investigate the patterns of sedentary behavior in terms of bouts, which is characterized as a period of uninterrupted sedentary time (a

consequences for the health of older adults ( Brocklebank, Falconer, Page, Perry, & Cooper, 2015 ). When combined, PA and sedentary time (ST) can form different patterns of behavior, with a synergistic effect, thus highlighting the importance of interventions that stimulate a positive pattern to produce health

The purpose of this study was to compare estimates of sedentary time on weekdays vs. weekend days in older adults and determine if these patterns vary by measurement method. Older adults (N = 230, M = 83.5, SD = 6.5 years) living in retirement communities completed a questionnaire about sedentary behavior and wore an ActiGraph accelerometer for seven days. Participants engaged in 9.4 (SD = 1.5) hr per day of accelerometer-measured sedentary time, but self-reported engaging in 11.4 (SD = 4.9) hr per day. Men and older participants had more accelerometer-measured sedentary time than their counterparts. The difference between accelerometer-measured weekday and weekend sedentary time was nonsignificant. However, participants self-reported 1.1 hr per day more sedentary time on weekdays compared with weekend days. Findings suggest self-reported but not accelerometer-measured sedentary time should be investigated separately for weekdays and weekend days, and that self-reports may overestimate sedentary time in older adults.

Recently, new guidelines for the combination of movement behaviors (sleep, sedentary time, and physical activity) that make up a 24-hour day have been developed for the early years (0–5 y) in Australia and Canada. 1 , 2 Shortly thereafter, South Africa also launched movement guidelines for the
